Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_8233– modifications to the cake recipe:

  • ingredients A: i used 40g of nutella (this is more than 1 tbsp nutella) and organic chocolate extract
  • ingredients B: my eggs are only 60g each; i omitted the sugar totally
  • ingredients C: i used organic coconut oil
  • ingredients D: i sifted both 90g plain flour and 10g corn starch together for 2x, and used only 70g of the flour mixture for the cake (due to small eggs)
  • ingredients E: i omitted cream of tartar and used 65g caster sugar

– 蛋糕体的调整:

  • 食材 A:我用了40克 榛果酱(这超出了1大匙的份量)和有机巧克力香精
  • 食材 B:我家鸡蛋重量为 60克;蛋黄的糖我免去
  • 食材 C:我用了有机椰子油
  • 食材 D:我将 90克面粉和 10克粟粉过筛 2次, 在称出 70克面粉份量用于蛋糕体 (因鸡蛋太小)
  • 食材 E:我免去了塔塔粉,并用了 65克绵白糖
