I first saw this cake posted by lisa of lisaiscooking and 2 things about the cake that got my attention are sesame seed and sesame oil ! So I tried to seek for the original recipe and luckily, someone was nice enough to let me know about the link where the recipe could be found ! Thanks Khun Beam for that..
I did few changes to the original recipe anyway (typical me!..lol). Firstly I used both black and white sesame seed while the original calls for only black one. Secondly, I replaced plain flour with self-rising flour, then reduced sugar to just almost 3/4 cup and last thing is to transform it into 12 cupcakes instead of one big cake..
The cupcakes were nice..soft and slightly sweet which perfectly fitted my taste. The sesame seeds and oil did a wonderful job and certainly made a plain butter cake much more attractive. So if you like butter/pound cake and are fond of sesame, then this cake is highly recommended !
