Gingerbread Magic Custard Bar

Its the most busy busy busy time of the year. I'm getting excited cause my girl is admitting to the University soon. Her admission day is getting near. Its going to be a long ride to the north. A lot of preparation needed to be done here. However, we still need a break. I made us a  gingerbread flavoured magic custard bar. Guess, this going to calm us down a little bit. hehe..... The step by step preparation isn't as tedious as I thought. It was nice & easy. I'm sure you can make one too !

Ingredients : (recipe adapted from here)
120gm   butter, melted
2 cups  milk
*1 TB  water

3/4 cup   brown sugar
4 egg yolks
pinch of salt
1 tspn  vanilla essence

4 egg white
1/4 tspn  cream of tartar

1 cup  all purpose flour
3 tspn  ginger powder
1-1/2 tspn  cinnamon powder
(combine & mixed well)

Method :
(1) heat milk without boiling it then off the heat & set aside.
(2) whisk ingredient (C) till stiff peak form, set aside.
(3) beat ingredient (B) till fluffy pale in colour then add in mixture melted butter & water, mix well.
(4) next, stir in mixture (D) and mix to combined.
(5) now, beat in warm milk till well mix.
(6) once its ready, fold whisked egg white into batter in three batches till everything well mixed. Do not over whisk the mixture.
(7) finally, pour batter into a 9x13" greased tray and let to bake at preheated oven 170'C for about 45 minutes.
(8) once its done, leave cool then keep refrigerated for an hour to set. Then slice into 16 equal square piece to serve.

I would say this is still not so perfect but the size is just nice. Overall, I really love the sense & aroma.

  7. Hi Kristy, I have been baking variations of magic cake so frequently for friends and for my magic custard cake workshop for the past two months but have yet to try this ginger flavour. Good to discover an interesting variation at your blog but I doubt I'll try this flavour as I am no fan of ginger. ;p
