Easy to make, it is elegant when served with mixed fruit and whipped cream or can be eaten as is for a quick sweet ending to a weekday meal. Chocolate Custard Cake4 eggs, room temperature¾ cup of white sugar + 2 Tbsp½ cup of melted butter1 tsp of vanilla extract½ cup of plain flour, sifted¼ cup of cocoa, sifted2 cups of milk, lukewarm¼ cup of icing sugar to decorate Preheat your oven to 350ºF and line an eight-inch square cake tin with baking paper, making sure to leave plenty of paper hanging over the sides. This will help you remove it from the cake tin once it is baked.Separate your eggs, placing the egg yolks and ¾ cup of sugar together in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until they have combined and are light and frothy (if no stand mixer, use an electric mixer to beat in a large bowl).With the mixer still going on a low speed, gradually add the melted butter and vanilla extract before adding the sifted flour and cocoa, a few spoonfuls at a time.Gradually add the lukewarm milk and continue to beat on a low to medium speed until all the ingredients are well combined.Place the egg whites and 2 Tbsp of sugar into a clean, dry bowl and beat using a mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until well incorporated. Pour the batter into your prepared cake tin, place in a preheated oven, and bake for 40 minutes or until a golden crust has formed on top of your cake. The cake will be slightly jiggly in the centre. Let cool completely before removing from the tin and cutting into squares. (Outside edges can be trimmed off for a perfect presentation.) Dust with icing sugar and serve.Image: Jacqueline Downey2022barscoconutlemonrecipesquares SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Cynthia Annett-Hynes ...
