Passion Fruit Ogura Cake #12 百香果相思蛋糕

It has been almost 2  months that I last posted my Ogura Cake Series.  No, its not that I stopped baking Ogura Cakes, in fact I have baked a few with different  favors but all the photos  have been kept in the file collecting spider webs.  Lazy worms all stuck over my body, having tough time to get rid of them.   hehe....

But this Passion Fruit Ogura Cake is one of my most successful products so far in term of  the texture.  The only complaint I have is my itchy hands sprinkle the passion fruit on the top  layer of the batter before going into the oven  that resulted  with so many ugly 'tahi lalat " (mole) on the surface of the cake.  That made the cake looked cracked but it was not.    Otherwise I will have a perfect smooth looking Ogura Cake.  Sign....

 Sensational Passion Fruit Ogura Cake -  with  melt in mouth super soft texture

Please don't let the ugly 'tahi lalat'  (dark mole) deceit you!    hahaha....

  4. Hi Christine,

    Your passion fruit ogura cake looks very soft and beautiful.

    I'm sorry that you can't link this post with our recent fruit buckle bake-along. Our rule of bake-along is you have to bake something along our proposed themes in order to able to link up with us. Nevermind that you didn't know this time, you can baking with us for our next bake-along with classic cinnamon rolls using a William Sonoma recipe.



  5. Zoe, thank you for explanation! I am always the 'MCC' blur blur type! hehe

  6. HI Christine,

    Can I ask how do you get passion fruit juice? U blend the passion fruit pulp with seeds? Pls advise. Thanks.


    1. Hi Yvonne, as for the passion juice, i go by the easy way that is measuring the fresh, juice and seeds together to get the 40gm lo.... hehe

  7. Question, Christine! So when you make ogura cakes, you only beat the egg whites to soft peak? A lot of others are beating it until close to stiff peak. I wonder if that is the reason why my cakes sink a lot everytime I bake ogura ='( I was taught to beat the egg whites to close to stiff peak all this time.

  8. Cherish, I hv done some research and concluded that the egg white beat till between soft n stiff peak ie the tip curls like a hook.
    and the egg yolk batter should beat till close to pale. hope this will help you. I am learning from you at the same time! Happy Oguraing!
