Oh my peach nail polish was pretty a week ago, sorry I did not repaint them to snap a picture of ice cream while having a relaxing day at the board walk. 1000 apologies for not preplanning on posting to Reddit and making sure I was as perfect as I could be for you. Please accept my deepest apologies my agent should have totally warned me when posting.

[homemade] caramel cake filled with strawberry-lime compote and white chocolate buttercream by _genau in food

[–]_genau[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok here we go.

Caramel cake modified from the Lemon Supreme Cake (I know, weird choice) from Layered by Teresa Huff. I love this book. All tsp/tbsp measures are US, not Australian.


  • 295g cake flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt (NOTE: I always leave this out because I use salted butter)
  • 300g brown sugar
  • 170g butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 240 mL buttermilk

Preheat oven to 175C/350F. Grease and line two deep 6" cake tins. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter until light and fluffy. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Scrape down the bowl. Turn mixer to medium low and add lemon juice, vanilla, eggs, and egg whites, one at a time, regularly scraping down the bowl. Turn mixer to low, add flour mixture in three batches, alternating with the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix on medium for no more than 30 seconds after the last streaks of the dry ingredients are combined. Divide batter among the bans and bake ~30 minutes (I have no idea, I do this by feel. Keep an eye on them and don't overbake!) until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before removing from their pans and wrapping in clingfilm. This traps in a lot of heat and condensation, making your cakes moist. Allow to cool.

Strawberry-lime compote

Here is where things start to get a bit all over the place. I took 500g of frozen strawberries, cut them into small pieces, and threw them into a large saucepan. I added a rough cupful of water, slopped in some sugar (maybe 3/4 cup? I have no idea), and added a big squeeze of lime paste, maybe a tsp and a half or so. I reduced that over medium heat for about 45 minutes or so, until it was fairly thick, and then poured it into a bowl and threw it into the fridge until cool.

White chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream adapted from Sweetapolita


  • 200g egg whites (I used the pasteurised sort that come in a carton)
  • 330g sugar
  • 450g butter, 3cm dice, at room temperature
  • 200g white chocolate, melted, cooled
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1/2 tsp salt, if you didn't use salted butter

Combine egg whites and sugar in a bain marie (I use a metal bowl over a saucepan of water on the stove), and whisking more-or-less constantly, bring it to 75C/170F. Pour into bowl of stand mixer with the whisk attachment and beat on med-high until the bowl is no longer warm to the touch, stiff peaks have formed, and the mixture is glossy. Switch to the paddle attachment and then slowly beat in the butter, cube by cube. The buttercream will collapse and then slowly become fluffy and buttercream-like. Add vanilla and white chocolate, beating until well combined. The longer you beat it the whiter it gets (you can also add a little titanium dioxide or white colouring to help).

That's not sticky rice. That's short grain white. There is a difference.
