Soya Ogura Cake 豆浆相思蛋糕

A soft and moist sponge cake using steam-bake method. You can add lemon or orange skin zest to enhance the flavour of the cake.

Yield: 18 x18 cm square cake 方形蛋糕

5 egg whites 蛋白
70g fine sugar 细糖
1/4 tsp cream of tartar 酒石/嗒嗒粉

5 yolks 蛋黄
1 egg 全蛋
65 g sweetened soy milk 甜豆浆
40g corn oil 玉米油
65g top flour 低筋面粉
1/8 tsp salt 盐
1/2 tsp lemon skin zest 柠檬皮削

1. Line a 18x18cm cake tin with parchment paper.
将一个18x18 cm 的方形蛋糕模铺上烘烤纸。

2. Place egg white in a clean and grease-free mixing bowl. Beat egg white using an electric mixer at high speed till the egg whites becomes frothy.

3. Mix cream of tartar and fine sugar in a bowl. Add the sugar mixture to the egg white in 3 lots and mix in low speed.
Increase the mixer's speed to high and beat egg white till soft peaks formed (the tips of the egg white slightly bent). Set aside.

4. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks, 1 egg, and corn oil at high speed till foamy (about 2 minutes). Then add in soya milk and beat for about 1 minute at medium speed.

5. Add salt to flour. Loosen the flour and salt using a hand whisk. Blend the flour mixture and lemon zest into the yolk mixture in (4) till smooth using the whisks detached from the hand mixer. 
Do not over mix the batter.

6. Fold in 1/3 of the egg white into the yolk batter in (5).  Then follow by the remaining 2/3 egg white. Stop mixing when no trace of egg white can be seen.

7. Pour about 400 g of hot water to the baking tray place at the bottom shelf of the oven. Preheat the oven to 160 degree Celsius.

8. Pour the batter into the lined cake tin. Give the tin a few light taps to get rid of trapped air bubbles.

9. Place the cake tin into the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes at 160 degree Celsius. Then lower the temperature to 140 degree Celsius and bake for 20 minutes. Check with a stick for readiness of the cake.

10. Remove the cake from the oven. Immediately, invert out the cake from the cake tin onto a wire rack to cool.

12. After the cake has cool down,  cut and serve :)
等蛋糕冷却后就可切块来享用 :)
