Another month means another Magic Cake recipe: this time of caramel flavour. I hope you like it!
125g/½ cup melted butter
170g/1 cup brown sugar (50g+120g / ¼ + ¾ cup)
1 tsp vanilla
115g/¾ cup flour
500ml/2 cups lukewarm milk
Icing powder for dusting
Preheat oven to 160ºC/325ºF. Grease an 8in x 8in/20cm x 20cm baking pan and line with parchment paper. Place the butter along with 50g/¼ cup brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat mixing constantly for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and leave to cool. The mixture will not be smooth and the sugar will be slightly crystalized.
Beat the egg yolks with the remaining sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the butter and sugar mixture, vanilla and stir well. Sift flour and add to the egg mixture until fully incorporated. Slowly add milk. The batter will be very liquid.
Beat egg whites until stiff. Gradually fold egg whites into the mixture. Batter should be lumpy. Pour batter into baking pan and bake for 45 minutes until lightly golden. Test with skewer and if necessary leave for an extra 5 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely before turning out onto a serving plate. Dust with icing sugar and cut into squares.
