What makes this custard cake so amazing? Well, aside from tasting like the stuff dreams are made of, this Creamy Custard Cake does a sort of magic trick when it bakes. You're gonna have to make it to see for yourself!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine egg yolks and sugar and beat until smooth. Add butter and vanilla; mix well. Beat in flour, then slowly add milk until well combined. Slowly fold in egg whites; do not over mix. Pour into baking dish.
  4. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until set in center and golden brown on top. Let cool.
Notes

When ready to serve, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and garnish with raspberries.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Baking 'dish' and the 325 temp seems to indicate a glass pan. Is that preferred?

Hi there! Yes, you can use a glass baking dish in this recipe. Enjoy!

I made this recipe using Splenda instead of sugar and coconut oil instead of butter. It is wonderful and I surely will make it again.

I made this yesterday and although it isn't a "sweet cake" it is very very good. It was easy to make and the fact that all the ingredients are always on hand in my kitchen made it even easier!! I will def be making this again!!

This was a delightful sweet bite. I used half almond milk because I didn't have enough regular milk, and it worked fine. I might add a bit more vanilla next time.

could you use splenda?

Hi there! Yes, you can use it in this recipe. Enjoy!

Has anyone used Almond milk instead of cow's milk?

Unfortunately, we have not tried using almond milk in this recipe, so we're not sure if it would work. If you do give it a try, we'd love to hear how it turns out for you. Thank you!

I have made it before and it is the most delicious cake ever made.greetings from Belgium .

I had to bake it over an hour before it would set up

Can a butter 'substitute' be used instead of regular butter? I have a cholesterol problem and have been on a very low cholesterol diet and butter is a no-no. There is quite a variety of substitutes that taste good but may not work in all recipes.

Hello! - In many of our cake recipes it is okay to use a butter substitute, but we aren't sure it would work in this recipe, since this cake "layers." If you do decide to give it a try, please let us know how it worked for you!

I hate it when my tablet "corrects" my words, don't you? Somehow egg whites disappeared from my previous comment.

These sound like ingredients in Impossible pie, except everything is just mixed in blender. I make them with coconut, or chocolate, brown sugar, etc. Beating the suggested makes this form layers. I believe it will be another recipe to be creative with.

This was very good.....not too sweet. I made it in a springform pan and it came out very nice. Will definitely make it again.

haven't made it yet can't rate it.

Do you use melted or softened butter?

use block butter and microwave for 20 sec.

Do you use softened butter or melted butter?

Hi there! You will need to use softened butter for this recipe. We've made sure to include that in the ingredients. Thank you for your comment!

Question... Since custard has nutmeg in it, can I put it in this recipe to add more flavor? Thanks, JS

Yes, you can add nutmeg to this. )

Yes, as the user above commented, you can certainly add nutmeg to this recipe! :)

I just made this today for my Birthday and it is great, just love custard and this one is so very simple to make. Thank you so very much

Did you soften the butter or melt it?

When I made this I soften the butter
