09/7/09 Kek for Hartini

Yesterday I baked a sponge kek for Hartini. The sponge cake turn out quite big so I did not cut it into layers. I decorated it with Swiss Meringue Butter icing which turn out to be a bit soft. So I have adjusted it by adding krimwell. Resepi below:

1/2 cup (4 oz) of egg whites
1 cup (8 oz) of granulated sugar
1 1/2 (12 oz) cup butter 1 tsp of flavoring (I use 1/2 tsp vannila, 1/2 tsp almond & a bit of lemon oil)
Put eggs and sugar in your mixing bowl and beat with whisk until well combined. Put bowl over a hot bath on stove top and KEEP mixing until mixture is no longer grainy to the touch (aprox 3 min). When that's done, take bowl to mixer using the balloon whisk on medium speed for 4 min. Replace ballon whisk for paddle. Slowly add your room temp butter in pieces and mix until smooth. Now add your extracts and (color optional-pref gel). You will notice it curd a bit aprox. 3 min into mixing, keep it on medium for another 3-4 min and it will be smooth & silky. Don't get impatient it will turn out so good!
