Magic Cake

Serving Size: 9 Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 45-60 minutes


4 Egg(s) At room temperature (separate yolks from whites)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
3/4 cup White Sugar
1/2 cup Butter (Melted)
3/4 cup Flour (All-purpose)
2 cups Milk (Lukewarm)
Icing Sugar (For dusting)


  1. Preheat oven to 325˚ F. Grease a 8 inch x 8 inch baking pan.
  2. Separate eggs and add the egg whites to a mixing bowl. Beat until egg whites are stiff. Place in a separate bowl and set aside.
  3. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until creamy. Add butter and vanilla extract and continue beating for another minute or two.  Mix in the flour until fully incorporated.
  4. Slowly start adding the milk and beat until everything is well blended. Carefully scoop in the egg whites a third at a time. Gently fold them in using a spatula, repeat until all egg whites are folded in. 
  5. Pour batter into the baking pan and bake for 40 to 70 minutes or until the top is golden. The baking time could vary depending on the oven, so take a peek at around 40 minutes and see how it looks. You may even have to give it a little nudge to see if it's still wiggly.
  6. Once cake has cooled, serve with berries and sprinkle icing sugar over top.
