Belacan Cake

This Parisan Browning Essence finally arrived from Melbourne to enable me to make this Kek Belacan. Thanks to my dear friend, Chan who carried it all the way. Truly, it did make my cake looked very much like Belacan.


Follow recipe from Secretive Cake but replace the caramel sauce aka dark soya sauce with Queen's Parisan Browning Essence.

Interesting - wondering what's the difference in taste compared to your secretive cake? could i ask where your friend Chan got the browning sauce? is it easily available at any supermarket?? tks _jane

Fanny Wijaya said...

Hello Lily, i don't see any dark soya sauce in your secretive cake recipe. You mean is caramel sauce?

twinklestar,Ann, madimomi

no, it looked like belacan but it is the a very flavorful cake. the presence of horlicks enhanced to flavor and the cake is very moist. According to the ingredeints in browning essence, they are only water and coloring.

There is not much different in texture but i found that the caramel sauce's slightly salty taste does complement the sweetness from the condensed milk

my friend chan came to visit from melbourne and he says that the broning essence can be found in the major supermarkets.

Hi Lily,

Thanks for sharing this secret receipes. May I know how much kg is 6 ozs(1 1/2 sticks) butter? Can we leave out the caramel if we don't mind our cake not to be dark in colour? Will there be any different in taste for the caramel?

Kindly advise.

Thank you in advance for your advise.

yes, you can omit the browning essence or the caramel sauce, the only will taste good only the color of the color will be pale.
