Yellow Butter Cake 牛油蛋糕

This was my other yellow cake recipe which was adapted from the famed baker Rose Levy Beranbaum. I have reduced the sugar amount by 40%. And in order to compensate for the moisture lost due to the reduction of sugar, I replaced some butter with oil. 這是EC最近嘗試的另一個yellow cake,配方改良自著名烘焙專家Rose Levy Beranbaum的yellow cake。EC把糖量減了四成,而為了彌補大量減糖而做成的蛋糕變乾問題,EC將部份牛油以葡萄籽油取代。 Compare with my previous … Continue reading Yellow Butter Cake 牛油蛋糕
