#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)

    Ingredients

    • 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)
    • Icing sugar to dust (optional)
    Method
    1. Prepare a 10 cup Bundt pan, greased and flour dusted.
    2. Sift flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, set aside.

    4. Add eggs one at a time, mix well.
    5. Fold in flour in two batches, alternating with milk, start with flour and end with flour.
    6. Put half of the batter into the pan, spoon jam onto the batter taking care not to touch the sides of the pan.
    7. Cover with batter, repeat process.  Give the batter a gentle swirl with a knife or skewer.
    8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 45 to 50 mins. till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
    9. Leave cake in pan to cool for about 20 mins. before unmoulding onto a wire rack to cool completely.

    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....

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
