Marble Butter Cake 云石奶油蛋糕~喜气羊羊 2015

I love butter cake, especially love it when mix with some chocolate, like this marble butter cake. I have a habit to enjoy butter cake for breakfast before I started to cook big meals on CNY eve day. Last time I use to buy from pasar pagi (morning wet market) during CNY. But now I can bake this cake anytime ^_^.

I still use back my old butter cake recipe this time, but I didn't using egg separation method as I was rushing for last minutes CNY baking cookies. 

I just baked like normal butter cake by adding whole egg . But i still want the same texture like using egg separation method. So I extended the beating time after adding all egg, as to beaten up the egg. Also i reduced a bit of the oven  temperature and watched out for the perfect timing before the cake getting cracked . My hubby told me this cake is simply perfect at right sweetness, light and not greasy. I also agreed with him, we just love it!
