Vanilla Magic Custard Cake

Vanilla Magic Custard Cake


1/2 cup unsalted butter-melted and slightly cooled

2 cups milk-lukewarm

4 eggs-separated

1 1/4 cups (150g) powdered sugar

1 Tablespoon water

1 cup (115g) flour

1 teaspoon Villa Vainilla mexican vanilla extract

Powdered sugar for dusting


Preheat the oven to 325°F. Lightly grease 8x8 inch baking dish, set aside; then whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form and set aside. Beat the egg yolks and powdered sugar until pale yellow. Mix in melted butter and the tablespoon of water (for about 2 minutes) until evenly combined. Mix in the flour until evenly incorporated. Slowly beat in the milk and vanilla extract until well combined. Fold in the egg whites (1/3 at a time, then repeat until all of the egg whites are folded in).


Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 40-60 minutes (until the cake is barely jiggly in the center). Baking time might vary depending on your oven or pan you use, but start checking after 40 minutes. If the top browns too quick before the minimum of 40 minutes, you can cover the cake with aluminum foil.


Cool the cake completely before dusting with powdered sugar. Even cooled, it will be slightly jiggly because it has custard layer in the center.
