The Recipe: Making Sin Cake at Home
– Sponge cake – 4 eggs, separated
– ½ cup caster sugar
– 2 tablespoons coconut milk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
– ½ cup self-raising flour
– ⅛ teaspoon salt
– Custard – 2 cups milk
– 4 tablespoons custard powder
– 4 tablespoons sugar
– 2 tablespoons cornflour
– 2 tablespoons butter
– ¼ teaspoon nutmeg powder
– ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder
– ½ cup chopped pineapple
– 2 tablespoons sultanas
– Icing – 4 tablespoons butter
– 4 tablespoons icing sugar
– 2 tablespoons milk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch cake tin with butter.
2. Beat the egg whites and sugar until soft peaks form.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks, coconut milk, and vanilla essence until combined.
4. Slowly add the egg yolk mixture to the beaten egg whites and fold together.
5. Sift together the flour and salt, then add it to the egg mixture and fold in.
6. Pour the batter into the cake tin and bake for 25-30 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean. Leave to cool before turning out of the tin.
7. While the cake is cooling, prepare the custard. Heat the milk in a saucepan over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it comes to a simmer.
8. In a bowl, combine the custard powder, sugar, and cornflour. Gradually add the hot milk, mixing well until combined.
9. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over a low heat, stirring continuously until the mixture thickens.
10. Remove the custard from the heat and add the butter, nutmeg, and cardamom. Stir in the pineapple and sultanas.
11. To make the icing, whisk the butter, icing sugar, milk, and vanilla essence in a bowl until light and creamy.
12. To assemble the cake, slice the cake in half and spread half of the custard on the bottom layer. Place the top layer of cake on top and spread with the remaining custard.
13. Pour the icing on top of the cake and spread evenly. Decorate with extra pineapple and sultanas, if desired.
