6-8 pieces


  • 1 cup - All purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup - Custard Powder, Vanilla flavour
  • 1 cup - Sugar
  • 1/4 cup - Butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup - Edible Oil
  • 1 tsp - Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp - Baking Soda
  • 1 cup - Milk, room temperature
  • 1 tsp - White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp - Vanilla Extract


  • 2 tablespoons Mixed Fruit Jam
  • 1/2 cup Water


  • 1 Cake mold, greased with Butter/ Oil
  • 1 Butter Paper, optional


  1. Wet Ingredients: In a bowl take Butter and Sugar and beat it until butter changes to light color. Then add oil and mix it well.
  2. Now add Milk, Vinegar, Vanilla essence to it and mix well.
  3. Dry Ingredients: In a bowl, sieve All-purpose flour, Custard powder, Baking Powder, Baking Soda together.
  4. Meanwhile set the Microwave oven to preheat at 180-degree Celcius.
  5. Mix the wet ingredients with dry ingredients using the Cut & Fold method. Don't over mix it.
  6. Now transfer the cake batter into the cake mold & bake at 180-degree Celcius for 30 mins.
  7. Check the progress of cake after 20 mins to ensure the temperature is not too high for the cake.
  8. Let's Make a Simple Frosting: Put a pan on medium flame and add Fruit jam. Note: You can take any fruit jam flavor( Mango, Orange, Pineapple) but I took Mixed fruit jam as it goes well with this cake.
  9. Add 2-3 tablespoon water immediately to the Jam and mix it really well. Switch off the flame after 2 mins or once the jam becomes of little flowy in consistency. Tip: You could use Honey instead of Jam but it requires 1-2 tablespoon of water as Honey is already flowy in consistency.
  10. Once the Cake is ready, demould it and spread the Frosting still it is mildly warm.
  11. Tadaaaa... Your Yummy Eggless Custard Cake is ready to serve. Enjoy !!

I've never thought of adding custard powder to cake. It's an interesting idea. A custard cake with jam on top sounds delicious.
