This cake is truly amazing; simply make the batter, put it in the oven and it separates into three delicious layers all on its own! The top layer is a light and fluffy sponge, the middle a creamy custard, and the bottom a chewy vanilla base. Delicious on its own or with a scoop of ice-cream this dessert is sure to please!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Makes: 9 servings

Ingredients
4 eggs
150g white sugar
1 tbsp water
125g butter, melted
3/4 cup flour, sifted
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups luke-warm milk
icing sugar (for dusting)

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees.

  • Separate eggs. Place egg whites in a medium bowl and beat until stiff peaks form.




  • Place egg yolks and sugar in a large separate bowl and beat until light and creamy.




  • Add melted butter and water to the yolk mixture, beat until combined



  • Add flour and vanilla, beat until completely smooth.



  • Gradually add milk, beating until totally incorporated.



  • Use a spatula to gradually fold in egg whites. Fold until mixture resembles scrambled eggs.



  • Pour mixture into a greased 8x8 inch pan and bake for 40 - 50mins or until golden and a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the cake.
  • (Note: if cake is browning too quickly, simply cover it in foil to continue cooking without further browning).




  • Cool completely in pan before cutting. Dust with icing sugar and serve with a scoop of ice-cream (and berries if you wish!).



  • Enjoy!
