Recipe adapted and translated from Bernice Kitchen


100g egg yolk
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
60g corn oil
70g milk
30g black sesame powder
45g low protein (cake) flour

200g egg white
60g caster sugar


IMG_6907蛋黄 100克(5个A蛋)
全蛋 1 个
盐 1/4 茶匙
粟米油 60克
牛奶 70克
黑芝麻粉 30克
低筋面粉 45克

蛋白 200克
细砂糖 60克


IMG_6908– beat egg yolk, egg, salt, oil and milk with egg beater till frothy

– sift in flour and black sesame powder and beat to incorporate well. set aside

– beat egg white till frothy, then beat in sugar in few additions till you get a silky, and stiff looking meringue

– fold egg white into egg yolk batter in 3 additions (just as you will do for chiffon cake)

– pour batter into square pan, and knock pan against bench a few times to remove air bubbles. bake in water bath on the lowest second rack of preheated oven of 150 degrees C for 60 mins
将面糊倒入方模里,把空气敲出。放入预热后的烤箱里,蒸烤法150°C ,中下层,烘烤60分钟

– after baking, invert cake immediately and unmould. cool before slicing

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

– i baked my cake in an 8 inch, removable base square pan and added a tray of ice (with water) into the water bath
我用了8寸,活性底烤盘, 并在水浴烤盘里的水里加了冰块

– to paint on cake: remove a bit of cake batter and mix with some cocoa powder. place cocoa batter into piping cone, and pipe onto cake before baking

– my cake was baked at 220 degrees C for 8 mins, and subsequently 150 degrees C for 50 mins
