Along the way, I took some pics, just for memorial sake, and probaby as a guide for my DDs in future if they are into baking.
Beaten egg yolks. I thought I took pics of the egg yolks mixture after adding in the flour. Apparently I did not as I can't find any such pics in my SD card.
Egg whites beaten till stiff, took me about 7 mins (running on max speed) on a 200W mixer (courtesy of Auntie A).
Invert the mixing bowl, the whisked whites should stay in place.
Baking in the oven, I can't see any cranberries on the surface so I got a little worried. I hope it won't end up like the other time. Fingers crossed.
Using 4 Chwee Kueh moulds to cool the inverted pan.
My 8" round pan is getting more "seasoned" but I still have slight difficulty removing the cake from the pan. It's evenly browned except for some slight holes that I've poked while trying to remove the cake :P
I'm very happy to see the cranberries "floating" all over the cake :)
I was expecting a pink cake since I've used strawberry yogurt but the cake turned out to be orangy. Taste good too but I still prefer the plain yogurt version.
