Vanilla Magic Custard Cake:

Okay, sweet-toothed pals, gather ’round, because boy, do I have a tale for you! I first stumbled upon this Vanilla Magic Custard Cake during a summer trip to Europe. There I was, in a small rustic café tucked away in a corner of Paris, when a slice of this heavenly creation landed on my table. One bite and I was absolutely smitten! How was it possible for one cake to have three distinct layers? It felt like I was munching on a fluffy cloud, diving into a creamy dream, and ending with a soft landing, all in a single bite. Determined to recreate this magic, I embarked on a culinary quest. Many (and I mean MANY) trial and errors later, and voila! The magic was captured. Now, it’s my pleasure to pass on this enchanted recipe to fellow dessert aficionados. Ready to make some magic?

Our Vanilla Magic Custard Cake isn’t just another cake recipe. What sets it apart? First, it’s a three-in-one sensation – a light and airy top, a dreamy custard center, and a dense, delectable bottom layer. One batter, three layers! How’s that for efficiency? Next, it’s the mouthfeel – a waltz of textures from fluffy to creamy to dense. And let’s not forget that nostalgic vanilla scent – oh, it’s like a comforting hug for your senses! But wait, there’s more! This cake might look fancy-schmancy, but its ingredients are basic pantry staples. Essentially, it’s luxury and simplicity combined, and who doesn’t want a piece of that?


  • ▢1/2 cup unsalted butter melted and allowed to cool to room temperature
  • ▢2 cups milk warmed to lukewarm temperature
  • ▢1 and 1/4 cups 150 g confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • ▢4 eggs yolks and whites separated
  • ▢1 Tablespoon purified water
  • ▢1 cup 115g all-purpose flour, sifted
  • ▢2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ▢Confectioners’ sugar for garnishing purposes


  • Begin by preheating the oven to a temperature of 325°F (163°C).
  • Utilize a light coating of non-stick baking spray on an 8×8 inch baking dish, ensuring an even distribution. Place the dish aside.
  • Using a clean mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites rigorously until they achieve a consistency characterized by stiff peaks. Once done, place them aside.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks with the sifted confectioners’ sugar. Beat them together until the mixture exhibits a pale yellow hue.
  • Introduce the melted butter and tablespoon of purified water into the aforementioned mixture, ensuring they are integrated uniformly. This should be done over a mixing duration of approximately two minutes.
  • Incorporate the sifted all-purpose flour into the mixture, ensuring an even consistency and no visible lumps.
  • Gradually introduce the lukewarm milk and pure vanilla extract into the mixture, ensuring consistent blending to achieve a homogenous batter.
  • Carefully fold the previously whipped egg whites into the batter. It is advised to do this in three separate portions to ensure thorough integration without deflating the egg whites.
  • Pour the final batter into the prepared baking dish and position it in the preheated oven. The baking process should span 40-60 minutes, contingent upon individual oven specifications. It is advised to monitor the cake starting at the 40-minute mark. If the surface is browning prematurely, it is recommended to shield the cake with aluminum foil.
  • Upon completion of baking, remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool to room temperature. Once adequately cooled, a light garnish of confectioners’ sugar may be applied for presentation purposes.
