Vanilla-Magic Custard Cake
Vanilla Magic Custard Cake is one of those special dessert recipes that is a lot of fun to make because of the surprising way that it bakes out in to two separate kinds of textures, one cake like and the other quite creamy. For that reason, get your beginner baker in on the act, so that he or she can also experience a new thing in the culinary kitchen. As well, this cake is made from scratch so you can both appreciate the skill in pulling together a home baked cake recipe, as well as the superior flavor that results from it. A home made cake recipe also has plenty of nutritional value in it, even along with the sugar. This cake recipe is particularly rich in nutrition, as far as cakes go, because of the extra eggs that go in it, the amount of milk that also forms part of the ingredients, and the small amount of flour (which lowers the simple carbohydrate count and so can increase the food value over all).
Eggs are a wonderful source of protein, although they fell, quite unfairly, in to disrepute some years ago. That was because of the high cholesterol levels that were found in eggs. Today, though, we know that consuming higher cholesterol foods is not the problem, but eating foods that are high in trans fat and unsaturated fat such as red meat and dairy products. So eggs now are considered an entirely safe and nutritious food to eat, and up to one egg daily is thought to be part of a balanced daily food plan. Eggs offer us plenty of reasons to eat them. They are only about 75 calories each, and contain about seven grams of protein. They have five grams of fat including just under two grams of saturated fat. They also offer us iron, loads of vitamins, minerals and other nutrition. The choline that is found in eggs also enhances memory and brain development. And this list is only some of the goodness that you can find in eggs. So there are plenty of reasons to eat eggs and ensure that they are part of your daily food plan.
This is a great little cake recipe, not only because you can make it from scratch, but also because it is a great opportunity to let your up and coming baker see how different combinations of ingredients can produce entirely new products. The result of this cake recipe is a custard with a lovely cake like crust on the top that you can smother in icing sugar, just for looks and fun. Enjoy this bake soon with your kids.
