Today I made this cake again, as I'm going to balik kampung (go back hometown) tomorrow to celebrate Mother's day with my mom, my mom prefer butter cake. Why i celebrate Mother's day after 1 week later, this is because my sisters have to celebrate Mother's day for their mother-in-law on the actual day. They have no choice, in Chinese family, husband's family comes first...I have no MIL, and I prefer we celebrate this day with our mom together.

In order to get better flavour, I baked today and keep this cake till tomorrow..

This time, I added blue poppy seeds, this is also my 1st time use poppy seeds, just like to present something new for my mom .

I m going to post in my blog soon :)

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Dear all, my mom and sisters gave thumbs up to this cake, they just love it. I feel that this recipe is better than the old recipe, try to use this recipe next time, omit blue poppy seeds if you can't get it, but follow to this recipe.

Sharon, Thanks for provided all the links.

Bakericious, next time, try to use this recipe instead, this recipe taste even better.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

ahmok33, this is butter cake, don't store in the fridge, otherwise it will turn dry and hard. Just keep it in the normal room temp...

Bakericious said...

Sonia, the old recipe is very good liao. I wil try this recipe next time.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia,

Would like to try this recipe. Can I used 2 tsp of baking powder instead of double action powder? Will the cake be very sweet? Coz my family don't eat too sweet cake. How much sugar shall i reduced? Can I replaced the cake flour with plain flour? Sorry for a asking a lot of question. I just started to learn baking.

TIA

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Hi TIA, ya, you can use 2tsp baking powder instead, this cake is not really sweet, dont reduce the sugar, because the sour from the lemon will balance the sweetness of this cake. Happy trying!

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia,

Thanks for your quick reply. Can i use plain flour to replace the cake flour? If I halves the recipe should I increase the flour to 175gm and omit the poppy seed? (refer to your first recipe - Lemon Butter Cake.)

BabeIpoh

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

BabeIpoh, yes, you can, but cake flour will give more fine texture. Dont increase the flour if you want to halve the recipe, follow this new recipe. Hope this help!

Anonymous said...

wish to ask if i want to bake it as cupcake version can i do that? if yes the temp remains the same temp? n baking time?

thanks
