Quick & Easy 30 minutes Oreo Marshmallow Fudge Cake 简易三十分钟奥利奥棉花糖蛋糕 (中英食谱教程)

Yesterday was my darling daughter's 13th birthday. She has requested for a non-cream, simple chocolatey cake with Oreo cookies and marshmallow. I found one recipe on the web which fits her description but has modified greatly to come up with a healthier and low sugar version.  The result is a chocolatey, fudgy and not so sweet cake which I like. It is a quick and easy, fuss free cake with minimal washing as you only need a hand whisk and spatula to do the mixing. Here's the cake which I have assembled for her and glad she likes it.

昨天是宝贝女儿的13岁生日。她要求无奶霜,简单的巧克力蛋糕,而且要有奥利奥饼干和棉花糖的。我在网上找到了她描述的蛋糕,不过大大修改成比较健康,低糖的食谱。烘出来的蛋糕有浓郁的巧克力味也没那么甜,我喜欢! 这是一个简易的食谱,只需花10分钟的准备和大约20分钟的烘焙时间就可享用美味可口的巧克力蛋糕了。

After we ate the cake, we made our way to the River Safari, a river themed zoo and aquarium to continue the birthday celebration.  Although it started pouring when we reached there in the late morning, the place is fully sheltered and we visited the attractions without getting wet at all. We especially love the pandas, KaiKai (凯凯) and JiaJia (嘉嘉) whose birthdays also fall on September. To celebrate the pandas birthday, there was fun and educational activities which we took part like visiting the panda awareness booth, registering ourselves for the Giant Panda Forest guided tour, planting our panda pledge on the pledge wall and creating our very own panda art & crafts. We had great fun indeed! :)


Managed to capture some nice shots of our beloved pandas. 熊猫可爱吧!:)

If you are a dark chocolate lover like me, you'll surely love this recipe! 如果你也跟我一样喜欢黑巧克力,不要错过这个食谱哦!

Quick & Easy 30 minutes Oreo Marshmallow Fudge Cake 
(adapted and modified greatly from 'Back for seconds') 

Ingredients 食材:(makes 7x7 inch square pan or 6 inch round pan which yields a taller cake, 用7寸四方形烤模或六寸圆模,蛋糕会高一些)

55g unsalted butter, softened 无盐牛油, 软化
25g corn oil 蜀米油
30g unsweetened cocoa powder 无糖可可粉 
80g caster sugar 幼糖
100g greek style yogurt 希腊式酸奶
2 eggs 鸡蛋 (I used 65g ones, 我用65克的)
1/4 teaspoon salt 盐
180g plain flour 普通面粉
50g mini marshmallow 迷你棉花糖
7 Oreo cookies 奥利奥饼干 (remove cream=14 pieces chopped, 把奶霜取掉=14片切碎) 

Directions 方法:

1. In a large mixing bowl, use a hand whisk to beat the butter, oil, cocoa powder and sugar until smooth. 

2. Add in the yogurt, eggs and salt and mix well.

3. Slowly add in the flour and mix until well combined.

4. Stir in the chopped oreos and marshmallows.

5. Spread into a pan lined with baking paper and bake in a preheated oven at 175 degree celcius for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. (For my brandt oven, I used the traditional function and baked it for 20 minutes.)
