Hi MH, Anncoo and Kitchen Corner,

Thanks for your nice words. The polka dot is chocolate chips and for the filling is butter cream mix with hazelnut spread.

Hi Tracie Moo,

I will try to post this recipe, as recently Blogger seem to have a lot of problems. I was quite upset that I can't upload photos on my post and sometime I can't save the content which I had typed. :(

Hi

This is cute! Do you place the choc chips on the tray first, then pour the batter over it? Or pour batter then scatter the chips? Tks.

Hi Lalaland,

Yes, I placed the chocolate chips on the tray first, then pour the batter over it.

Hi Happy Flour

Would like to check with you the followings:

a) Use a cake mixer and whisk the egg whites until frothy.
4. Gradually add in the sugar and whisk till stiff peaks form.
5. Change the speed to medium and gradually add in the egg yolks and whisk for another 1min until well combined.

After reaching stiff peaks stage, will whisking in the egg yolks deflate the air bubbles in the meringue?


b)6. Fold the flour into the meringue lightly in 3 portions until well combined.

Does the mixture looks lesser after folding in the flour cos some bubbles have been deflated?

Would like to clear these doubts before trying out this recipe.

TIA
Mel

Hi Mel,

When you add in the egg yolks whisk until it is well mix that all, if you whisk for too long the air bubbles will be deflated.

During folding in the flour the volume of the batter will drop slightly as you are adding heavier substance into a lighter one. You can't prevent deflating some air bubbles during the whole mixing process. As long as you didn't over fold it the air bubbles will stay. Happy baking :)
