准备蛋糕体 ~ 黄油和牛奶 (A)放入奶锅加热至烧开。离火

– pour in all sifted flour and cocoa powder at a go and mix well using a wooden spoon till mixture is no longer lumpy

– beat egg and 3 egg yolks together

– add egg mixture into dough mixture in 3 additions; incorporating well before next addition

– continue to mix until mixture becomes ribbon stage. the key here is to ensure all egg mixture is incorporated into butter/flour dough when the latter is still warm. then, add in the 60 degrees milk (B)

– beat egg white, adding caster sugar in three additions until stiff and shiny peaks form

– pour egg yolk mixture all at once into egg white meringue and fold well using ballon whisk. then change to spatula to ensure the bottom of the batter has been well mixed

    You\’re welcome. One comment about your recipe: you\’ve missed out when to incorporate the cocoa powder.

    • Victoria Bakes (December 20, 2014)

      Hey Lee, thanks for that.. i have really taken for granted that the \”sifted flour = flour + cocoa powder\”, but yes, i should hv been more specific :D. tks for pointing out
