Gula Melaka Butter Cake

Whenever I want to bake on Sundays, I would need to find an easy recipe to do so, because I only have mornings to do my baking. It's been a while since I bake a cake for my in-laws, so I decided to bake this Gula Melaka Butter Cake, also known as Palm Sugar for Gula Melaka. Thanks to Victoria, the cake was really fragrant and nice. 

I also made a Gula Melaka swiss roll incorporating the palm sugar into the whipped cream. I used Jeannie's recipe for the vanilla swiss roll. Thankfully, the swiss roll turned out well, the gula melaka in the whipped cream was really light and nice, not too sweet for our palate.

5. Alternate A & D in 3 batches, ending with D. (I sieved out A as there was some charred bits.)
6. Pour the batter into the prepared pans - 3 mini and 1 regular pan loaves.
7. Bake in preheated oven of 160C for 40-45mins. I removed the minis from the oven after 40mins and continue baking the regular for another 5 mins.
