Magic Cake

"One simple batter, bake it and voila! You end up with a 3 layer cake with the most delicious custard layer. This truly is one of the easiest cakes you’ll ever make and one of the most impressive and not to mention delicious!" Jo Cooks.

4 eggs (separate yolks from whites) at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sugar

1 stick butter, melted
3⁄4 cup of all-purpose flour
2 cups milk, lukewarm
Powdered sugar for dusting cake

Preheat oven to 325 F degrees. Grease a 8 inch x 8 inch baking dish.
Separate eggs and add the egg whites to a mixer and mix until egg whites are stiff. Place egg whites in a 
bowl and set aside.
Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until light. Add butter and vanilla extract and continue beating for 
another minute or two after which you can add the flour and mix it in until fully incorporated.
Slowly start adding the milk and beat until everything is well mixed together. Add the egg whites, a third 
at a time and gently fold them in using a spatula, repeat until all egg whites are folded in. 
Pour batter (which will be very thin) into baking dish and bake for 40 to 70 minutes or until the top is lightly golden. The baking time could vary greatly depending on the oven, so take a peek at around 40 minutes and see how it looks.
Sprinkle some powdered sugar after cake has cooled.
