Leftover buttercream




I got some leftover buttercream and not sure what to use it. So, when i saw the post of Vitoria Sponge Cake from Sorted Food, then i decided to adapt some of the ingredients into this experiment. 

Ingredients:

60g of buttercream (more or less, not sure, coz i forgot to measure)
1 egg
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of apple vinegar (i substituted with lemon zest, not sure about the taste so i a little only)
100g of all purpose flour
1 tsp of baking powder
some melted milk chocolate
2 tsp of milk (for each of the batter)

Steps:

  1.  Preheat oven to 180C, prepared 7inched round pan with parchment paper greased with butter    around the edge.  
  2.  Cream the buttercream, then add egg mixed well.
  3.  Add in vanilla extract and apple vinegar and mixed well.
  4. Sifted in dry ingredients into (2.) and combined evenly.
  5.  Separated into 2 batters, 1 original, another for chocolate batter.
  6.  As for the chocolate batter, incorporate well with melted chocolate and 1 tsp of milk.
  7.  As for the white batter, just incorporate with 1 tsp of milk to loosen it up.
  8. Take 1/3 white batter pour into the centre of the baking pan, then take 1/3 of chocolate batter pour into the centre. Repeat the steps.
  9. Bake for 20 mins.
It came out like giant cookies. I think if i used a larger pan and skipped the milk, it would be likely turn into cookies. Crunchy outside and cakey inside. Well, it turned out quite satisfied, except it is a little bit too sweet. Overall, 7.5/10.
