Grease & line two 8 x 3 loaf tin or one 9 inch round tin
1. Cream butter and castor sugar at medium speed untill fluffy, add vanilla extract.
2. Add in slightly beaten eggs (2 each time) and beat well to combine. Rum liquor may be added at this point of time. (The mixture will be watery with curbs due to more eggs)

4. Mix cocoa powder with warm milk into a paste. Take 200g of the mixture and mix in the cocoa mixture. Marble the mixture.

I like cake with sour cream or yogurt.

May I know where did u attend Richard Goh's baking class?

Angel @ Cook.Bake.Love said...

Btw normally recipe will call for soften butter any idea why chilled butter is used here? Do u mean butter directly out from the fridge ?

I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com

Most RG's recipes use cold butter to cream till light and creamy as according to him it gives a lighter and fluffier texture where soften butter gives a dense texture. I think so too. Happy baking!

I attended RG's class years ago in various community clubs (Cairnhill, Ang Mo Kio & Jln Besar). You may try logging in Onepa to check on his classes which he offers by stages.

I made this cake today and it was a total disaster. I'm a pretty good mother and I have enough experience to tell you that all the proportions in this recipe are wrong. The cake turned out too moist, not sweet enough and it tasted like a pudding. I'm very sorry but I can't recommend this recipe.

Hi Katherine,

Sorry about your bad baking experience from my recipe. I remember this cake is quite moist as lots of sour cream added and I have reduced the sugar by 30g.

I tried this recipe today with a slight smaller portion (I have smaller oven) and it turned our superb! Thanks for sharing this recipe and I would definitely recommend it. I used 5 eggs, 210g of sour cream (1 tub), 200 of flour & butter each, 200g of sugar and the rest are the same.
