Topo Map Love Cake (地图牛油蛋糕)

When I first saw this cake , I was fascinated by it's colour & irregular stripes. I decided to bake this pretty Topo Map Love Cake and could not wait to see how my cake turns out after baking. My sister's dog came lingering at the kitchen  the moment I took out the cake from the oven. I was happy to see the outcome of this cake. In fact it's a simple nice butter cake which look like a map and is now my favourite too.

Recipe  Source:      Eileen's Diary  /  Table For 2.....or More

  • 150g unsalted  butter (softened at room temperature)
  • 90g Castor Sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 180g self raising flour, sifted
  • 75g evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp pandan flavour concentrate ( I used Pandan juice)
  • 2 tbsp chocolate powder

  1. Cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  2. Beat in eggs, one by one, beating well after each addition.
  3. Sift half the flour into the butter mixture and beat on low speed until well combined.
  4. Mix in the evaporated milk until well combined.
  5. Sift the balance of flour into the mixture and beat on low speed until combined.
  6. Divide the batter to two. Mix vanilla extract to one part and pandan paste to the other.
  7. Preheat oven to 170 degrees
  8. Spread 1/2 the pandan batter (or vanilla whichever you prefer) into pan. Level it.
  9. Evenly sift a thin layer of cocoa powder over.
  10. Very very gently dollop half of the other colour over and gently level it. Repeat the sifting of cocoa powder.
  11. Repeat layering with both colours, with the final layer clean (no cocoa powder on top).
  12. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
