For something so easy to make, this cake does have a nice blend of textures and a creamy vanilla flavor that is, well, magical. From start to finish is just five basic steps, and baking time is roughly an hour.
This recipe has been a great hit over at Hugs & Cookies xoxo! Let’s take a look at what some of the readers have said about it:
I made this Magic Custard Cake it came out great. I served it with strawberries and whip cream on top. Everyone loved it and it was so easy to make. I used 2% milk and it was fine.
I made this with maple sausage for my husband only I added whopped eggs with the rest it was savory and he loved it for breakfast!
4 eggs (whites separated from yolks), room temp
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sugar
8 Tablespoons butter, melted (I used Land O’Lakes unsalted butter)
3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 cups milk lukewarm
powdered sugar for dusting cake
Preheat oven to 325 F degrees. Grease and line an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with parchment.
Separate eggs and add the egg whites to a mixer and beat the egg whites stiff. Place egg whites in a bowl and set aside.
Beat the yolks & sugar until light. Add butter and vanilla. Beat for two minutes. Add flour and mix it in until fully incorporated.
Slowly start adding the milk and beat until everything is well mixed together. Add the egg whites, one third at a time and gently fold them in using a spatula, repeat until all egg whites are folded in.
Pour batter into baking dish and bake for approx 60 minutes or until the top is lightly golden. Cool and dust heavily with powdered sugar.
Quick tip: Try serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
