First of all, I would like to thank all who either shared your health experience or remedy with me. I am seriously touched by concern, comments and emails.
Hubby is coming home today and I decided to bake a Lychee cake for him. I had been soaking my lychee with vodka for more than two weeks and had been lying idle in my fridge.
I also wanted to experience making a Genoise cake. Heard so much about it but never really tried it as I always read that it is a dry cake and it is best soaked with flavoured syrup.
Went to get a new cake ring to do this cake as I heard it is much easier with cake ring for such cakes.
Anyway, here is my Lychee cake. I am pleased to find a tinge of alcohol to it. Not over powering that my kids will shunned.
As for the Genoise, I should have laded it with syrup but I thought the cream will be able to give it some moisture and I was wrong. I didn’t like the texture as I find it too “rough”. I love soft moist sponge.
I incorporated two types of cream to find out which one taste better and I am glad that both are good.
Next time, I will try a different sponge and make this into Lychee Martini Cake!
Verdict: Family has no complain about this cake but I am sure this is far from what I am looking for.
