好力克 80克
蛋糕粉 160克
可可粉 2大匙
热水 3大匙 – 和以上可可粉混合
薄荷香精 2小匙


– Line & grease bottom of a 7 x 7 inch pan. Set aside
7 x 7烤盘底部涂抹黄油并铺上烘焙纸

– In a large bowl, cream butter & sugar on high speed until light & fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each addition

– Reduce speed & beat in vanilla essence, condensed milk, malt powder & kaya. Mix until well blended

– Stop machine & fold in flour. divide mixture into two parts. Add cocoa into one & peppermint & green colour into the other. Mix well

– Preheat oven at about 180-190 deg C, top & bottom heat. Pour 2 ladles of cocoa mixture into baking pan & spread mixture evenly
烤箱预热至 180-190摄氏度。倒入两勺可可面糊,刮匀

– Bake for about 6-7 minutes or until cooked. Once cooked, remove pan from oven & press top of cake gently using a lapis presser or bottom flat surface of glass. Then adjust oven setting to grill (top heat only) at temperature of about 200-210 deg C

– Pour 2 ladles of peppermint mixture into baking pan & spread evenly. Bake until cooked. continue baking alternate layers until finish. (I baked 2 layers of cocoa mixture followed by 2 layers of  peppermint mixture)

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

– i made 1.5x the recipe but used 150g sugar and 1/2 tsp peppermint oil. i used 4 drops of green colouring and the colour of the peppermint layer came out pretty faint. so do use more if you like a distinct green layer
我做了食谱的1.5倍份量,不过只用了 150克白糖和 1/2小匙薄荷油。我只用了4小滴绿色素,所以薄荷面糊那层绿色显得不太突出。如想有突出的颜色,记得多加色素哈

  • i adjusted my oven to 240 degrees C grill mode and baked each layer between 6 – 7 mins
    我将烤箱转换成烧烤模式后,将温度调为 240摄氏度,每层烤了 6-7 分钟

  • i baked the last layer for 13 mins at 180 degrees C, top and bottom heat
    最后一层用了180摄氏度上下火、烤了 13分钟
