Eggless Custard Cake

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.

  1. Hi Kirbie, 
    Could I make this recipe into cupcakes? If so, how long should I bake them for?

    • We haven’t tried baking them as cupcakes and can’t say for sure how long they will take. Sorry about that!

  2. It works

  3. Just discovered this recipe and as we have Coeliacs in our house I made it with plain gluten free flour plus 1/4 tsp xantham gum. It turned out brilliantly!

  4. Is the custard powder Eggless. ?  

    • Bird’s custard powder, which is the brand I used, is eggless. If you are using a different brand you may need to check the ingredients label but most of the custard powders I’ve encountered are egg free.

  5. Can i just use a regular 8′ cake pan for this recipe.

  6. Can I use cake flour instead of all purpose?

  7. Is this cake moist? or dry?

  8. can we use vegetable oil instead of butter?

  9. i just tried this cake today and we loved it.. i was searching for something using custard powder..have 2 tins !!i just added a little more sugar though..

  10. This is such a wonderful recipe. I was so obsessed that I rightaway did it after i went thro the recipe. It came out damn good. I cant wait till it cools. Thanks for such a tasty cake,that too eggless !!

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

  12. Aw man, I want to make this so much but I don’t have a small bundt pan with me at school! Do you think a muffin pan would be okay?

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Looks delicious!

  16. 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.
