Serves: 9
  • 100g unsalted butter, melted (organic)
  • 500ml whole milk (organic)
  • 1 tbsp dark rum (recommended) or water
  • 4 eggs, separated (organic)
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar (organic)
  • 150 icing sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (organic)
  • 115g all-purpose flour (organic)
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C. Line a square (20 x 20 cm) baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Warm the milk in a pot until it is lukewarm. Set it aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt and cream of tartar until they start forming until stiff peaks start to form.
  4. Place the egg yolks and icing sugar in another bowl and mix for about 3 minutes, until the mixture is thick and pale. Add the cooled, melted butter and dark rum (or water) and mix it for another 2 minutes. Mix in the flour until just incorporated. Add the milk and vanilla extract and slowly whisk all is incorporated. Then carefully fold in the egg whites.
  5. Pour the batter in the prepared baking pan and bake for 50-55 minutes until the top of the cake is golden brown. The cake will still be slightly jiggly. Let it cool completely before cutting it. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
Keep the cake refrigerated.
