Custard Cake

Ingredients to make Custard Cake

  • 100 grams butter melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 and cups breakfast/castor sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 4 drops white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

How to make Custard Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degree Celsius.
  2. Whip the egg whites and white vinegar till stiff peaks form. Beat the egg yolks and sugar till they are light and fluffy. Add in the melted butter and 2 tbsp water and beat it well.
  3. Add the flour in gently. Beat in the milk and vanilla essence.
  4. Using a spatula fold in the egg whites in three batches. Since you have already added 2 cups of milk the batter will be in a liquid state.
  5. When you first add the egg whites they will float like tiny marshmallows. Do not be disheartened and keep mixing gently.
  6. Pour the batter into a greased cake tin and bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes.
  7. Serve warm with a cup of tea or milk.

My Tip:

When I first saw the batter I thought that it is better I use a loose bottom tin otherwise, however the cake is not that wobbly and you can safely use a normal cake tin.
