I'm not sure why, but the word custard has been on my mind a lot lately. So when I saw TeamSugar member celebrity_soup's recipe for a Super Moist n' Fluffy Custard Cake, I could barely stop from drooling all over myself. The cake itself is a vanilla cake with a hint of almond, and the whole thing is topped with a delicious custard. You could cut the cake in two and put the custard in between, but why bother, it's just going to be devoured in minutes. To get the recipe,
Moist n' Fluffy Custard Cake

As you probably don't know (cause I haven't posted any of their recipes),
I have been going cake crazy!
My family is always wanting more, more, more, more! (haha)
I have been making about 2 cakes a week, once one is done, I'm off to making another one.
I have to say, it's quite fun. :D
Yesterday I asked for what my brother was in the mood for, he said: "make me something like a vanilla cake, moist n' fluffy".
After hearing that, I knew exactly what to make, it was as if a light bulb went *ding* instantly in my head. I couldn't get a picture of the whole cake, because half was eaten before I could even grab the camera!... it's that good. :P
3/4 cup milk
90 g butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract or essence
1/2 tsp almond essence (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 heaped tbsp custard powder
1/3 cup sugar
1. Heat milk and butter. Leave aside to cool slightly.
2. Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla well until creamy. Sift dry ingredients and add to egg mixture. Add heated milk and butter to flour mixture. Turn out into a greased 20 cm tin and bake in a preheated oven at 350 °F for about 35 minutes.
3. Custard Filling: Heat milk (to a boil), mix custard powder and sugar with 2 tbsp of milk in a separate bowl. Add this to the boiling milk and stir with a whisk until thick.
4. Fill and top cake layers with custard.
I didn't fill mine with custard, just topped it. All you need to do is grab a thread or dental floss and pass it through the cake right in the middle. Now just fill it with custard (the cake needs to be absolutely cool) and sandwich the two layers together. You also need to make double the custard recipe to fill.
