Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_8889– at the 58th min when i inserted a skewer, it had a few crumbs sticking on it. but i decided to stop baking as the cake has pulled away from the sides of the pan and i wanted to maintain a QQ (chewy) and moist texture.. it was a right decision 😉
烘焙 58分钟后,插入蛋糕的竹签还带点蛋糕糊(粘粘滴)。固蛋糕已从烤盘脱边儿,而我又想确保蛋糕湿润并有 QQ的口感,我决定停止烘焙,取出蛋糕。。完美的决定哈

    Could you please advise that after sift batter into baking pan and allow to sit for 45 mins before put into the oven to bake? Need to cover fully?

    Thank you.

    is this something like the Bika Ambon? What is the reason for sitting the batter for 45 mins before baking

    • Victoria Bakes (September 21, 2015)

      Yes its bingka ambon. Sitting the batter is to ferment it which helps create the honeycomb effect
