maple syrup cakes

November 18, 2008 at 11:33 pm | Posted in Cakes | 13 Comments

last weekend the parents and i found ourselves at pantry magic, a pretty shop along jalan merah saga. granted the things there are expensive, but they are exquisitely beautiful! they stock a good array of silicon bakeware and i decided to get a heart-shaped mould.

yesterday i had a long meeting and i decided to whip up something simple at night just to unwind a bit.




i had one when it was still warm and it was pretty nice… tasted like pancakes! might be good with a dollop of butter too.

from donna hay’s modern classics 2:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Beat 90g softened butter, 2/3 cup brown sugar and 2 tablespoons caster sugar in the bowl of electric mixer until light and creamy. Add two eggs gradually and beat well. Add 2 tbsps milk, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1 2/3 cups sifted plain flour and 1 3/4 tsps baking powder and beat until just smooth. Spoon into moulds/cupcake cases and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.

  2. sihan: yes i think it’s good for breakfast! especially when eaten warm. and yeah… the heart moulds are cute but it’s expensive! hahaha. there were so many other cute ones but coz of the price, i only got one. :p probably will come back for more later.

  10. hey there i tried out this recipe and it tasted great! thanks!

    i’m a beginner in baking and i would like to know what did you do to prevent the cake from sticking to the mould? i greased my mould with butter but it didn’t work.

  11. hello kangli, great to know it turned out well for you! 😀 what moulds are you talking about? silicon or normal metal ones? probably you could flour it a bit after greasing. or line with baking/greaseproof paper.

  12. hello! i’ve been lurking around for some time and i find myself salivating everytime i see your baked goods! anyway, just wondering- if i were to add blueberries (or additional ingredient of the likes), wld it be too sweet (since there’s maple syrup)?

  13. RAF: lol, thanks! 🙂 i think adding blueberries is fine; the cake isn’t overly sweet even with the maple syrup.
