Rum & Raisin Bundt Cake ~ 朗姆酒和葡萄干蛋糕


It's been a while since I've baked a Bundt cake.  As I need to finish up the Rum in the pantry, I surfed the internet for a Rum cake recipe without having to have a cake mix as one of the ingredients.  I managed to locate one, modified it a bit and here's the recipe which I am going to share with you today.  This cake is slightly dense but moist, full of Rum flavour and aromatic, but trust me you  won't get drunk after eating it!






Rum & Raisin Bundt Cake  ~  朗姆酒和葡萄干蛋糕 (adapted from 'here' with modification)
Ingredients
  • 280 gm butter
  • 250 gm caster sugar
  • 4 'L' eggs
  • 42 gm milk powder
  • 320 gm plain flour (take out 2 Tbsp to mix with the raisins)
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 Tbsp Rum
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 80 gm raisins soaked in 4 Tbsp Rum
Rum Glaze
  • 2 Tbsp water boiled with 3 Tbsp sugar till sugar is dissolved
  • 2 Tbsp Rum, mix well
Method
  1. Prepare a 10 cup Bundt pan.  Grease with butter and dust with flour.
  2. Soak the raisins with Rum for a few hours or overnight.  
  3. Strain the raisins and mix with 2 Tbsp flour to prevent the raisins from sinking to the bottom.  Keep the Rum liquid.
  4. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt, set aside.
  5. In a mixer, beat the butter with sugar till light and creamy.
  6. Add in the eggs one by one, mix well.
  7. Fold in the flour alternating with the milk till well combined.
  8. Add in the milk powder and vanilla.
  9. Mix in the Rum liquid, add more to make up 3 Tbsp.
  10. Mix in the raisins and stir to fully combined.
  11. Pour batter into the prepared Bundt pan.  Level the surface.
  12. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 55 to 60 mins. till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  13. Remove from the oven.  Poke holes in the cake and brush on the Rum glaze.   Let cake sit in the pan to cool completely, unmould and brush on more Rum glaze.   Alternatively you may let the cake sit in the pan overnight before unmoulding and applying more Rum glaze.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Char Siew Pau ~ 蒸叉烧包

I have been itching to try out a Pau recipe and vaguely remember that I did make it once, long, long ago.  So I  got hold of my old file of recipes and finally managed to retrieve it.  I did it recently and must say that I'm satisfied with the result.  The texture of the Pau was soft and a bit chewy, wholesome and filling too.  Naturally, they didn't look so nice and round like the ones sold in the dim sum restaurants, but nonetheless I think homemade ones can be just as delectable as well.
