Topo Map Cake

Topo or topography is related to Geography - a subject I hated most in school. Haha.. Saw this cake a few times when I was surfing and it really interest me how a simple butter cake can be made into such nice formation.

I checked out Wendy's blog and some recipe found on Munch Ministry. Being the kiasu me, I of course went with an experienced food blogger's recipe..keke

Frankly this cake is fairly easy to do and it taste really good and moist.

Topo Map Cake
(source: Table for 2..or more)

250g butter
250g sugar *
5 eggs (the eggs I used weigh about 57g each)
300g cake flour
1tsp baking powder
125ml evaporated milk
1tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp pandan extract
Some cocoa powder for the topo lines

- Cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy
- Add in eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each additon
- Sift half of flour and baking powder. Beat on low speed until combined
- Pour in evaporated milk and beat on low speed until combined
- Add in remaining flour and beat on low speed until combined.
- The batter is now ready. Pour half of the batter into a separate bowl and mix in pandan extract in one part and another with vanilla extract.
- Spread 1/2 of the pandan batter into lined and greased pan. Level it.
- Carefully, sift a layer of cocoa powder on the batter.
- Gently, scoop a dollop of alternate batter (if pandan was used as base, put vanilla batter next or vice versa). Level the batter, becareful not to scrape off the cocoa powder.
- Repeat with a layer of sifted cocoa powder and pandan batter.
- Repeat layering until all batter has been used it.
- Bake for 45 minutes or when toothpick comes out clean. Oven temperature is 180C.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is important
and all. But think about if you added some great visuals or video clips to
give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this
website could definitely be one of the best in its niche.
Good blog!

Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
