Hi,

If you don't mind when you got the time could you kindly advise me on
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter = to how many grams, 1/2 pkg. (4 oz) Philadelphia cream cheese = to how many grams and do you bake the cake using 350ºF. Is 350ºF equal to 180C?

Thank you for your advise.

Thanks Gigi. Yes, you should try this, it's soooo good. Yeah I baked some CNY cookies already, going to make my kuih bangkit this afternoon. Someone organized a gathering at her house so we just attend. :) No decoration this year, no mood at all. :P

Mixue,
1 stick of butter = 113g
4 oz of cream cheese = 113.5g
And yes 350'F = 180'C.

Pooh Shim said...

I tried making the pound cake last night. Overall it taste very good but I got one question to ask. Why is the bottom of my cake a bit wet whereas the top is fine fluffy and light?

Pooh Shim said...

I tried baking this pound cake last night. Turn out very good but the botton of the pound cake a bit wet.

Can I ask why this is so? And another question. I am using a table top oven so when I bake I used the grill as well as the botton heater. Is this correct way to bake the cake?

Little Corner of Mine said...

Pooh Shim,
Bottom a little wet seem like too much butter, try cut it down 1 Tbsp. and see what happen. Normally for baking cake, it's best to use the top heating element only (conventional oven). But I'm not sure this will cause your cake to be wet at the bottom though.
