Magic Cake

This is really a magically cake. When i spotted this cake from Bakingtaitai, i got curious a cake can separate into 3 layers of sponge cake, pudding/custard layer and a kueh like layer ?

I am very glad that i try out this recipe. No cracks as i baked on low temperature 150C

See the below picture for the cut out of the cake ... amazing !!

 Top Layer is fluffy sponge cake, middle layer is pudding like layer and the bottom layer is the kueh like layer.

Recipe from baking tai tai

Ingredients ( Makes a 7" x 7" square pan)

113 gm Butter unsalted
480gm fresh milk
1 T water
4 eggs, separated
115gm Plain Flour
145gm icing sugar ( I used 100gm brown sugar)
28 gm caster sugar ( 1 used 25gm brown sugar)
1tsp vanilla paste ( i used homemade vanilla essence)

1) Lightly grease and lined baking pan
2) Preheat oven 150 C
3) Melt the butter, set aside
4) Warm milk, set aside
5) Sieved plain flour , set aside
6) Beat 4 whites with caster sugar till stiff peak
7) Beat 4 yolks with icing sugar till pale and fluffy, then add in melted butter & 1 T water
8) Mix well
9) Add the sieved flour, mix well
10) add in fresh milk with vanilla paste , mix using a whisk till well combined
11) Add in stiff whites and mix with a spatula (the batter will appear curdy, just fold in till no big curds are seen)
12) Pour batter into pan and bake at 150 C for 50-55 mins or till top is golden, test with a skewer which comes out clean, then the cake is done
13) Remove from mould and cool completely before cutting

This cake is delicious and save time, cos we do not need to do extra steps to make the pudding layer!


  1. Hi, Wendy, I bake another 3 times of this cake, I have alter the baking steps, hope this could help you. I bake at 150 degree C for 10 min, then I cover the cake with aluminium foil, and continue to bake for another 40 minutes. Cover with aluminium foil is important if you bake with air fryer or else the top of the cake end up crispy.

  2. Hi Jozelyn, Thankyou very much for the tips ! really appreciate it !!
