When I saw this cake at jocooks.com, its name intrigued me. It’s amazing that only one batter turns into a three-layered cake, with a layer of custard in the middle! The trick for this cake is to make the batter very thin, similar to a crepe batter. I have modified the original recipe with less butter and sugar, and it turned out great.

3: Beat egg yolks and ¼ cup sugar until pale (Picture 3). Then add 1/3 cup melted butter (Picture 4) and 1 tsp vanilla extract (Picture 5). Beat at low speed until just combine. Add the flour (Picture 6) and beat at low speed until all combine.

4: Slowly add warm milk (Picture 7) and beat at low speed until well mixed (Picture 8). Add 1/3 of the beaten egg white into the yolk and flour mixture (Picture 9) and fold with a spatula until mixed. Then pour it back to the remaining 2/3 of the beaten egg whites (Picture 10). Gently fold with a spatula to mix very well (Picture 11).

5: Pour the batter into a 8 x 8-inch buttered Pyrex baking dish (Picture 12). Bake in the preheated oven at 310 F/155C for 55-60 minutes until surface turns light golden.

    Ingredient #4, did you mean “baking powder” instead of 1tsp cake flour? Don’t you need baking powder for this one?

    I absolutely loved all your cakes, they are great! May I suggest a Kitchen Aid Electric Stand Mixer instead of a handheld mixer? I have been using the Artisan model for the last 5 years. It is the most useful appliance in my kitchen.

    Thank you.
