Bluepea Zebra Stripes Ogura


This cake is rather short, I have played with it for too long!


Usually I get 2 stripes but this cake only one!

Bluepea Zebra Stripes Ogura


50g vegetable oil
60g Milk
Pinch of Salt
5 yolks (100g) + 1 Whole egg (B eggs)
65g Plain Flour + 10g coconut milk powder
Soak a handful of dried bluepea flowers with 2-3 tablespoons hot water, nuke for couple of seconds and strain. Use 1-1.5 tablespoon.

5 Egg white (200g)
80g Castor sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar (can replace with 1 tsp lemon juice)

Prepare a 8″ round pan, line the bottom with paper and grease the sides.
Preheat oven to 160C and get ready a shallow tray to hold the baking pan for water bath.
Boil some water for water bath.

1. Whisk with a hand whisk the first 4 ingredients until combined before adding the flour and whisk until smooth.
2. Beat egg white with an electric mixer until foamy then add in cream of tartar and beat for a minute before adding castor sugar gradually and continue to beat until firm peaks.
3. Mix 1/3 of the meringue into the yolk batter with a hand whisk until well combined before adding another 1/3 portion and repeat until the last 1/3, switch to spatula and scoop batter from the bottom of the bowl and fold up to ensure complete mixing of the batter. Divide the final batter into 2 portions, and mix the prepared bluepea juice into one portion. Pour batter alternatively (about 2-3 tablespoons at a time) into baking pan to mimic zebra stripes.
4. Bake in a water bath at 160C for 10 minutes then lower to 145C for 60-70 minutes.
5. Invert the cake after baking, peel off lining and invert back up and let it cool completely before cutting the cake.

      It’s not difficult to do the stripes Karen, just need to pour in alternately but the result is mesmerising!


  2. Hi, for all the ogura cakes that you make, may I know if you are using a removable bottom baking pan or a normal one?

      Just normal pan. Line the bottom.
