Jaggery Sugar Jelly Layer Cake
jaggery sugar I used on my jelly. Very fragrant.
Ingredients for sponge :
3 egg yolk
70gm superfine flour
3 TB corn oil
1 tspn pandan coconut paste
3 egg white
1/4 tspn cream of tartar
Note : for 6" tray ~ 3 layers
but I made 3x 7-1/2" tray ~ 6 layers to make 2 cakes
for chocolate cake ~ use 50gm superfine flour + 20gm cocoa powder
(1) beat egg yolk & sugar till pale and fluffy.
(2) then alternately add in milk & flour till everything combined.
(3) next, beat in oil & pandan coconut paste and set aside.
(4) whisk ingredients (B) till peak form.
(5) now, fold egg white into (A) mixture in 3 batches till everything done.
(6) finally, bake at preheated oven 150'C for 30 mins and 170'C for 20 mins or till the tester came out clean.

Ingredients for Jelly :
(for 8-1/2" tray ~ 3 layer 7-1/2" cake)
400ml thick coconut milk
85gm hoen kwee flour (white)
15gm agar-agar powder

80gm brown sugar
