Everybody is baking this cake on Facebook and those who tried highly recommends.  So I am in for the fun and it is indeed a nice cake which is not difficult and requires any difficult to find ingredients.


Recipe adapted and modified from Enne Tay, member of Baking’s Corner FB and Victoria Bakes

230-250g butter, soften (I used 250g)
160g caster sugar (170g for chocolate cake)
4 large eggs/5 small eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
200g self rising flour, sifted (replace 4 tbsp of flour with cocoa powder for chocolate flavour) (this works out to be about 167.5g flour + 28g cocoa powder for me)
5 tbsp milk/whipping cream (I used milk)

Ingredient B
250g cream cheese, soften
60g caster sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp corn flour/self rising flour/all purpose flour (I used self rising flour)


1.               Grease and line an 8 inch square pan. preheat oven to 160 degrees C.

2.               Beat ingredients B till fluffy and set aside.

3.               From ingredients A, beat butter and sugar till pale and fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time and mix well.  Add in vanilla essence and milk. mix well.

4.               Fold in sifted flour (together with cocoa powder if making chocolate flavour) into butter mixture.  Mix well.

5.               Spread half portion of batter into pan, then spoon in cheese mixture (B). Cover cheese mixture with the remaining portion of cake batter (total of 3 layers).
