#Bundtamonth : Peanut Butter Lime Jam Bundt Cake

So far, I've yet to bake something with peanut butter and when the organisers of Bundtamonth announced that the theme is 'Jammy November',  I surfed the net and located this recipe.  It's a recipe taken from the book 'Cake Simple' which was tried by 'Bake or Break'.  I used my favourite lime marmalade in this recipe but as I didn't put enough jam  according to the recipe, the jam swirls weren't so distinct, in fact there were no swirls at all :((  I reduced the jam as I didn't favour an overly sweet cake.  Nonetheless the lime flavour did go down well with the creamy peanut butter and it was good.









Recipe for Peanut Butter Lime Jam Bundt Cake (adapted from 'here' with modiciations)

    • 10 oz plain flour
    • 1.1/2  tsp baking powder
    • 1  tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • a pinch of salt
    • 4 oz butter
    • 6.1/2 oz brown sugar (reduced from 3/4 cup sugar + 1.1/4 cups brown sugar)
    • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 cup milk
    • 2 tsp vanilla
    • 1/4 cup lime marmalade (reduced from 3/4 cup)

    6. Put half of the batter into the pan, spoon jam onto the batter taking care not to touch the sides of the pan.

    1. I had to include the jam as it's for 'Jammy November'. I think it'll still taste good minus the jam.

  8. Hi Cheah,
    Lovely bundt cake! I have this book and have just recently baked a cake from it. So far, all the bakes that I've tried have been great, the only thing is, I reduced the sugar for all the recipes that I've tried. I can see this cake is another winner.
    Thanks for sharing with CYB!
    Have a great weekend!

  11. I LOVE Cake Simple--highly recommend the whole book! I admit I would not have thought to try lime with peanut butter, but the more I think about it the tastier it sounds! Kind of a SE Asian vibe....

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
