How to make magic custard cake

The magic custard cake. A surprise and a delight all in one! 



  • 4 eggs – separated
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup flour
  • powdered sugar – for dusting
  • 1 tsp vanilla or lemon extract
  • 8 tb (1 stick) butter – melted
  • 2 cups milk – room temperature



  1. Preheat oven to 325º.
  2. Grease an 8X8-inch baking pan and line with parchment paper. 
  3. Separate eggs and add the whites to a mixer and beat until stiff. Place egg whites in a bowl and set aside. 
  4. Beat the yolks, adding the sugar a little at a time while continuing to beat, until light and airy.  Add butter and extract of your choice and beat for an additional 2 minutes.  Slowly add the flour and mix it in until fully incorporated. 
  5. Slowly start adding the milk and beat until all is well combined. Add the egg whites 1/3 at a time and gently fold them in with a spatula.  Repeat until all the egg white have been folded in. 
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 50-60 minutes. However, I suggest checking at 30 minutes and if getting too brown, cover loosely with foil.
  7. Bake until the top is a nice golden brown. 
  8. Your magic custard cake is ready to be served!
