Soft Orange Butter Cake

Butter Cake  ? Oh No ...
I am not a fan of butter cake and I assumed my family too.
Chiffon cake is always my favourite,  Love its texture, soft and light.
Still remember many years ago, when I first decided to bake a cake, I chose Chiffon Cake, 
What !? You are a bravely lady   C: 
To bake a nice chiffon cake, for me as a baby in baking when baking is NOT my forte, baking is always my challenge,
Heaps of failure, it end up in the garbage bin, sad, discourage :C....
but me  " Never Give Up" + a chiffon cake in New Zealand may cost you $15 at that time.... 
 And again I assumed  my family love chiffon cake as much as I am. 
Ok, Ok back to Butter Cake.
I visited many bloggers' lovely kitchen, they baked n recommended butter cake,
Still ...I don't fall in love with butter cake, 
Until one day I came across this recipe, where the method ask to 
separate the egg yolks from egg white. I know this gonna be a good butter cake.
Yes It is a soft and light butter cake.
And now I love butter cake, guess what my hb, kids all enjoy this butter cake so much.
Mmmmmm..... maybe we need to change.
Life is sometimes boring, 
Life should be fantastic, fun, marvellous, extraordinary, tremendous...

  10. 你的孩子们喜欢吃butter cake 还是 chiffon?
    这些人太过份了。 不知羞的!

  11. Playing in the kitchen
    我的孩子最近也爱上牛油蛋糕, 也许是我这个妈妈一直来都太自以为是的认为孩子喜欢戚风,而没有给他们做牛油蛋糕。
    O(∩_∩)O哈哈~,对那些拿别人东西当自己的用的人我也不知道怎么说,他们开心就好 C:
