It is mango and coconut jelly fruits layer cake!
Although not perfect in look, I am satisfied with the result. (I was juggling between cooking dinner, washing dish, baking buns and Gan Cheong that the three girls will wake up from nap – when hubby was out running errands!)
Plus the girls proclaims ‘it is so yummyyyyy!!’ And then Noelle says ‘mama, I want this cake for birthday, k? So pretyyyy! I like the pattern!’ 😚😚😚 Beyond words, worth the effort – though your birthday still soooo far away! Ok la, practice more to make it perfect!
The recipe (thanks Vivianne Tan for sharing):
* I changed the ‘sugar’ for the mango part to banana (so less artificial sweetness)!
Baked a chocolate extra virgin coconut oil cake for my hubby!
Ingredients all mix together:
Wet – 3 eggs, 190ml milk, 60ml extra virgin coconut oil, 100g icing sugar
Dry – 230g self raising flour, 1tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 55g cocoa powder
Bake under 180 degree celcius for 30-45 minutes.
Something to cheer the unwell girl(s)
Dry ingredients: half cup cake flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cocoa powder, handful of chocolate chips
Wet ingredients: one egg, two tbsp honey, two tbsp milk, one tbsp (sunflower) oil
Mix dry and wet ingredients individually. Then mix wet into dry ingredients. Don’t over mix !
Under high heat, steam for 10 minutes.
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 finally ‘no fail’ steamed cupcakes
And it is NOT kuih-ish at all! ✌🏻✌🏻(even Noelle who doesn’t like steamed cakes approved it)

I love this recipe as my cupcakes did not ‘deflate’ at all after I removed from the oven!

(I saved this link for some time; and thought of clearing the half more piece of baking dark chocolate)
I reduced the icing sugar from 250g to 50g! Really can’t imagine the sweetness level if I used 250g😨!
Verdict: It is ‘easy’ to bake (I used less than 15 min to prepare ingredients and mix them all – let it bake by itself while we nap, 180 degree celcius for 30-40 min) – and I manage to adjust sweetness according to my liking! Really saves a lot by baking rather than store bought or even buying from homemade ones! 😝
