Custard Cake

I simply love all the awesome recipes that can be found online. So many great individuals can cook up dishes from scratch and share the recipe for those like me who can cook by following a recipe and adding my own flare here and there. This recipe from Mabel's "Tart Magica" is a great and yummy delicious.

1/2 cup (113g) unsalted Butter
2 cups (480ml) Milk
4 Eggs, separated
4 drops White Vinegar
1 1/4 cups (150g) Confectioner's Sugar
1 Tablespoon (15ml) Water
1 cup (115g) Flour
1 teaspoon (5ml) Vanilla Extract
extra confectioner's sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Lightly butter or grease a 8"x8" baking dish.
Melt the butter and set aside to slightly cool. Warm the milk to lukewarm and set aside.
Whip the egg whites and vinegar to stiff peaks. Set aside.
Beat the egg yolks and sugar until light. Mix in the melted butter and the tablespoon of water for about 2 minutes or until evenly incorporated.
Mix in the flour until evenly incorporated. Slowly beat in the milk and vanilla extract until everything is well mixed.
Fold in the egg whites, 1/3 at a time. Repeat until all of the egg whites are folded in.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45-60 minutes or until the top is golden. Allow cake to completely cool before cutting and then dust with confectioner's sugar *see Note 1.
Note 1: For faster cooling you can place the cake in the fridge. Even after fully cooled, it will still be slightly jiggly.
