Soy Milk Marble Ogura Cake (豆奶云石相思蛋糕) LTU October - Soy Bean #2

Shawn request for a Ogura cake last week. Think back i have not baked a Ogura cake for quite a while too.  I baked this Pandan Ogura and this Black tea Ogura months ago. Little Thumbs Up theme for this month is Soy Bean so i am going to baked a Soy Milk Marble Ogura cake ^_^
I used some pandan extract to do the marble in the cake and also get rid of the egg-y smell. I am quite happy :) with the result despite the little crack across the cake :( 


就做了一些调整,试试看效果如何 :D
出乎意料哦, 除了蛋糕有一点裂 ><以外, 成品还算挺满意得!!

It is soft and cottony with pleasant mild soy and pandan aroma.

Love the marble in the cake. It surprises you in each and every slice.

Slight shrink at the side of the cake.

Soy Milk Marble Ogura Cake (豆奶云石相思蛋糕)
Adapted from 茄子(Eggplant) in Chinese

4 egg yolks
1 whole egg
45 g canola oil
80 g soy milk ( infused in 2 pieces pandan leaves)
**I mircowave the cut pandan leaves with soya milk for about 30 seconds. Then put the used pounded pandan leaves from C to extracted a lighter pandn juice and sift it. 
75 g cake flour
a pinch of salt

70 g sugar
4 egg whites 
Few drops of white vinegar 

6 pcs pandan leaves, pounded, add in 1 tbsp water to extract the thick pandan juice. Set aside.

To Do:

1. Preheated oven tp 190C. Grease and lined a parchment paper at the bottom of a 7 inches square baking tin. Also prepare another larger baking tin for water bath. (i just get ready a pot of hot water. Put the cake into the larger baking tin and slowly add hot water into the larger cake tin.

2. Part A.. Sift cake flour, add salt and set aside. Mix oil, soy milk, egg yollks, whole egg, sugar and whisk well with a hand whisk. Add in the flour into the mixture, in 2 batches. Lightly whisk in well after each batch. Covered and set a side. (refer pic a -2)

3. Part B.. Beat the egg whites with a hand mixer until soft peaks formed, add in 3 drops of vinegar. Gradualy add in castor sugar, a tablespoon at a time and continue to beat until it is almost stiff peak formed. (refer pic a -3)

4. Fold 1/3 of the beaten egg whites into the flour mixture first, then repeat two more times with the remaining egg whites. Take out 5 tablespoons of the mixture and fold in the extracted thick pandan juice.

5. Pour half of the plain batter into the prepared cake tin , then spoon in the pandan batter scatter onto the plain batter then pour in the remaining plain batter. Use a paring knife make a few swirl. Tap the tin once on the bench top to get rid of any large air bubbles and place the cake tin inside the larger tin with hot water in the oven. Bake  in  water-bath at 190C for 15 minutes and turn to 135C for 45 minutes.

6. Remove cake tin from the oven. Carefully turn out onto a tray (or rack) and let cool completely.  Let the cake cool completely before slicing.

    You mentioned in step 2, Part A to add all the ingredients with sugar but you did not indicate the qty of sugar in the ingredient.

    Please advise.

    1. Hi beauty,
      Thanks for compliment! Yes, this is a very nice cake, especially pandan juice is added.

      You can add 1 tbsp of sugar in the yolk batter or you can omit it. I omitted it cause I want it to be 'kurang manis' :p
      (I omitted in the ingredients part and forgot to edit the to do part :p. thanks for showing me my mistake)
      Hope you will love this cake. Happy Baking:)

  18. Hi,
    Finally I found something I am looking for. Glad to bump into yr blog with all the clear direction of this recipe. Have tried other recipe but failed each time. I am hoping to try it soon but need to ask if it is okay to omit the Pandan ?

  19. Hi Berry,
    Welcome to my blog.

    The Pandan is for the nice aroma. You may omit it if you like to add other flavor, like vanilla! Vanilla works well too. Hope you try this. Happy Baking!

    1. Hi Mui Mui,
      Tried your recipe last nite. The cake turned out soft and fluffy but was wet below. The taste however a bit too eggy and not able to taste the soya milk. Did I do something wrong ?

    2. Hi Berry,
      I think you did it right. Since you mention the cake is soft , fluffy and moist but mine had no eggy taste. Lol.
      This is a steam bake cake so it is more to moist side. Maybe you can let the cake invert for 5 minutes after taking out of the oven. Later you can un-mould it, tear away the bottom parchment paper and invert it again till it is cool to slice. This will keep the cake bottom more dry.
      As for the soya milk taste it is very mild. That is why I uses Pandan leaves to add aroma to the cake. May be you can use some stronger flavor that you like to replace Pandan. Coffee, chocolate, orange, green tea or vanilla works well too.
      Hope my answer does give you a clue about the cake.
      Thanks for trying this out :)


Thank you for visiting my humble blog. I would love to hear from you.
Hope that you are having a nice day ^_^
