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.

    Cool!What a fantastic recipe! now I have another use for that custard powder! I haven’t made those Nanaimo bars either (even though they’re bakeless).

    I believe I saw the powder at Fresh and Easy as well as Shakespeare’s Corner Shoppe (they sell imported British items there). It’s probably cheaper to get it at F & E (it would be in the ethnic food section – they have a few shelves devoted to British food).

      Thanks for the tip! I’ll check there when mine runs out. I still have a good amount left even after this cake, but I plan on making it again a few times.

    I love your bundt pan! I need more bundt pans.

      I get most of mine from Amazon. I like the Nordicware pans. They make such pretty ones and the cakes come out so nice in them. I usually get them when they do the buy 3 get 1 free promotion or something similar.

    How much is 150gm of butter in USA measurements? I really want to make this cake! Thanks.

      I used a scale so I’m not sure of the conversion. You may want to do a google search and see if there if there is a conversion somewhere.

    How big is a small bundt pan? Is it 12 cups??

    • Kirbie replied: — November 25th, 2012 @ 8:42 am

      No, actually 12 cups is the standard large size bundt. For this you need something that is 8-10 cups.

    can we use vegetable oil instead of butter?

    • Kirbie replied: — July 29th, 2013 @ 9:27 pm

      I think that should work!
