This delicious cake made with milk powder and topped with lemon curd frosting is perfect with tea or coffee.

Milk Powder Cake with Lemon Curd Frosting

Ingredients for the cake:
  • 3/4 cup self-raising flour
  • 3/4 cup milk powder
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • 2 eggs
  • Additional water if the the batter gets too thick
  • Chocolate shreds for decoration (optional)
Ingredients for the lemon curd frosting:
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • A pinch of cinnamon powder
Making milk powder cake:
  • Preheat oven at 180°C.
  • Grease your non-stick cake pan with margarine.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the margarine and sugar until smooth.
  • Add eggs and and beat the mixture until it is smooth.
  • Add self-raising flour and milk powder and beat well.
  • Pour the batter into a cake pan.
  • Bake it for around 35-40 minutes.
  • To test if the cake is ready to be taken out, pierce a toothpick or a fork and see if it comes out clean. If not, put it back into the oven for 5 more minutes and repeat the test.
  • Let it cool in a rack.
Making lemon curd frosting using Bain Marie (double boiler) process:
  • Mix eggs, sugar and lemon juice in a bowl.
  • Simmer water in a saucepan. Place the bowl on top but make sure it doesn't touch water in the saucepan.
  • Slowly whisk the mixture until the mixture is thickened. Add cinnamon powder and mix.

  • You can adjust the taste of the lemon curd adding more sugar and lemon juice.
  • Let the lemon curd cool.
Final step - Frosting the cake:
  • Before frosting the cake, make sure the top of the cake is smooth and even for the best result. If the cake has the top puffed up, you can cut off the top to even out the cake.

  • Put the frosting in the middle of the cake and spread it evenly all around.
