Traditional Baked Egg Cake 老式鸡蛋糕(烘烤)

Traditional Baked Egg Cake 古早味鸡蛋糕 - This old school egg cake recipe is simple. Basically just beat the eggs, mix together all the ingredients and bake. Everyone can learn and bake this at home. 

Update: In June when I was back home for holiday, I have learnt some tips from my dad. Due to his health concern, he did not add oil in his baked egg cake but added some milk. I like the idea of that but I did not omit oil, I adjusted my old recipe (read the notes below) and it works beautifully. 

The texture is light, soft and moist.

Ingredients: Yield 8 servings

2 Eggs 鸡蛋 2粒

70g Castor Sugar 细砂糖 70克

Pinch of Salt 盐 少许

70g Cake Flour  低粉 70克

1/2 tsp Baking Powder 发粉 1/2 小匙

1 tsp Vanilla Extract 香草精 1小匙

18g Oil 油 18克

1 tbsp Milk 牛奶 1汤匙

* Note: 

- Previously, I used self raising flour / all purpose flour + 1/2 tsp baking powder but some of my readers were unable to achieve the soft texture. Therefore, I have revised the recipe, replaced the flour with cake flour + baking powder. This is more easy to handle. However, do not under beat or over beat the egg. That's is crucial to yield soft and light egg cake. 

- I have received many queries about to add or not to add the condensed milk. To avoid confusion, I have removed it. It's actually optional to add condensed milk, you may just omit it.

- I have reduced the flour and sugar from 90g to 70g, added a tbsp of milk. Thanks to my dad who enlightened me on this. 

- If your oven is the "very hot" type, preheat oven 160'C, reduce to 140'C when start baking, bake for 10 minutes. Reset temperature to 150'C, bake for 22-25 minutes.

After my baking lesson (taught by my dad LOL...).
This time, I reduced flour and sugar, added 1 tbsp of milk, soft and moist.
This is perfect for now. :)
