Budin de Huevos

I made this recipe by accident one day while trying to make a version of tres leches cake batter using the ingredients I had on hand, mainly cake flour and not all purpose flour. What came out was most certainly not a tres leches, but it was still pretty delicious. I have called this my "budin de huevos", or egg bread pudding cake, because it's somewhere between a sponge cake and a bread pudding. It has the eggy-ness of a sponge cake, but the denseness and compactness of a bread pudding. Give this recipe a try if you have six eggs, cake flour, and a stick of butter laying around.  It may just become your new favorite - It did for me!

6 eggs, separated into yolks and whites
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of cake flour
1.5 tsp. of baking powder
1/2 cup of milk
6 tbsp. of butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff and set aside.
  • Combine milk and vanilla extract and set aside.
  • Sift flour and baking powder together and set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
  • Add in egg yolks a few at a time and mix well after each addition.
  • Add in flour mix alternately with the milk mix and mix well.
  • Fold in egg whites.
  • Pour batter in a 9x13'' glass bake pan.
  • Place pan in hot oven and bake for about 18 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
  • Remove from oven when done and place on wire wrack to cool.

Buen Provecho!

Accidental recipes can be the best! I happen to love bread pudding and any kind of cake, so this sounds like the best of both worlds :)
