I’m calling it, this Magic Custard Cake really is magic. There were more than a few occasions I almost gave up and tipped the mixture into the bin while I was making this. After looking at all the gorgeous photos of this three layered gooey custard cake online, when I looked at the dodgy cake mixture in front of me, I had no confidence at all that it would actually work out. The mixture just didn’t look right to me, yet I continued with the thought I’d come this far already, I at least had to see what happened when I popped this disaster into the oven
My few sneaky peeks into the oven thankfully gave me some assurance that cake may just work. After 35 minutes it had developed a lovely golden crust on top and when tested with a skewer it was still a little wobbly in the middle – perfect.
The two biggest tips I can give you when it comes to this recipe are:
1. Your baking time WILL vary depending on the temperature of your ingredients. Some people may find they need to cook their cakes for up to an hour.
2. The mixture will look strange and you may be convinced that it won’t work out – keep going as the end result is worth it!
What was the last thing you made that turned out much better than you expected?
