Even though this pound cake texture was not super moist (i guess due to corn flour is added ) , but this pound cake tasted chocolaty, not greasy, love the bite of nuts, banana and chocolate chips..another good keeper..

Hi Sonia,

I always failed to beat butter and sugar until light & fluffy. Should I use the beater or the balloon whisk for the beating process?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

peiszong, usually I use electric hand mixer, I think it is called beater. Don't use balloon whisk, usually use it to beat meringue or whole egg only.
