I’ve a small packet of 50g Black Sesame Powder that I bought from Hong Kong from my last trip. Have always try to visit baking supplies shop when I’m overseas to check out the interesting ingredients and gadgets that they may have. I do like Hong Kong baking supplies shop, there is a lot of ingredients they repack to smaller quantity which is great for a one-time bake.
I wasn’t able to imagine how the cake will taste like and so here is the conclusion – nutty flavour that well balance with the “butter flavor”.
50g salted butter
50g icing sugar, sifted
70g cake flour
30g black sesame powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1. Cream butter and icing sugar well.
2. Add in egg a little at time and ensure it’s well beaten after each addition.
3. Sift together cake flour, baking powder and black sesame powder and fold in lightly.
4. Fold in milk
5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 170 degrees for 20-25 mins.
