Ingredients Related Tips

4 eggs (separate yolks from whites) at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
150 g (3/4 cup) sugar
125 g (1 stick) butter, melted
115 g (4 oz or 3/4 cup) of all purpose flour
500 ml (2 cups) milk lukewarm
powdered sugar for dusting cake


1 - Preheat oven to 325 F degrees. Grease a 8 inch x 8 inch baking dish.
2 - Separate eggs and add the egg whites to a mixer and mix until egg whites are stiff. Place egg whites in a bowl and set aside.
3 - Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until light. Add butter and vanilla extract and continue beating for another minute or two after which you can add the flour and mix it in until fully incorporated.
4 - Slowly start adding the milk and beat until everything is well mixed together. Add the egg whites, a third at a time and gently fold them in using a spatula, repeat until all egg whites are folded in. (Another variation to folding in the egg whites would be to add a third of the egg whites and gently whisk them in to the cake batter, then reverse the process and add a bit of the cake mixture to the egg whites and gently whisk in, repeat until all cake batter has been whisked in.)
5 - Pour batter into baking dish and bake for 40 to 70 minutes or until the top is lightly golden. The baking time could vary greatly depending on the oven, so take a peek at around 40 minutes and see how it looks.
6 - Sprinkle some powdered sugar after cake has cooled.

It tastes pretty good. I messed up though, by not whipping my eggs enough. So, the cake is kinda flat and squishy texture, but its really good otherwise. REMEMBER TO WHIP YOUR EGGS ALL THE WAY!

Ignore the "it's not a 3-layer-cake recipe" comment. They obviously didn't make it. It seperates naturally in pan because of density.

I HATE misleading titles! If encounter more like this I'm going to unsubscribe. This is NOT a 3 layer cake recipe.
