I’m pretty excited to share this cake with you today. Not only is it eggless and easy to make, but it tastes good too. It’s one of those soft, melt-in-your-mouth type of cakes. No frills, but so delicious. Sometimes simple is best.
A few months ago, I was gifted with some custard powder along with a lot of delicious other goodies from CC (Thanks again C!). The custard powder is also available on Amazon. I was supposed to use the custard powder to make Nanaimo bars, but so far I’ve only used them to make my egg puffs. When I came across this custard powder cake, I knew I had to try it.
Because it is eggless, the cake doesn’t bind together as well as a typical egg-filled cake. However, it still bakes up like a cake and because it uses so much custard powder, the cake pretty much dissolves on your tongue. Yum.
I didn’t do anything too drastic to it because I wanted to keep it simple and let the cake shine. I just dusted it with some powdered sugar.
I haven’t enjoyed a cake so much since the hot milk sponge cake I made a while back. This was perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon snack.
Eggless Custard Powder Cake
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup vanilla flavored custard powder
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
150 gm butter (softened)
1 cup milk (I used fat free)
1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease and flour a small bundt pan.
2. Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add the vanilla, milk and butter and mix well until smooth.
3. Pour into the prepared pan and bake about 30-35 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Mine was done at 33 minutes.
