Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.
Today’s temptation is a delicious white cake made with several egg whites and one whole egg, and lots of vanilla.
There are fresh raspberries and homemade lemon curd between the layers, and I’m topping it all off with a Vanilla Bean Frosting. The flavor combinations are simply delish.
Here is the recipe, enjoy.
- 2 1/3 cup (295 g) all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons corn starch
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cup (345 g) unsalted butter
- 2 1/4 cup (500 g) regular sugar
- 1 cup (250 ml) full fat milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 8 egg whites
- 1 egg
Filling + frosting:
- 1/3 – 3/4 cup (100-200 ml) lemon curd
- 3 1/2 oz. (100 g) fresh raspberries
- Vanilla Bean Frosting
Preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C).
Sift the flour, corn starch, baking powder and salt at least 5 times. It’s tedious work, but essential to get the best possible result. (If you use cake flour you can omit the corn starch, and skip this step).
Put the flour, corn starch and sugar into a mixing bowl and mix for a few minutes.
Cut the butter into small cubes.
Add the butter, one cube at a time.
Mix the milk with the vanilla extract and egg whites. Pour this into the mixer a little at a time, followed by one whole egg.
I use three 8-inch (20 cm) pans for this.
Grease the insides of the pans, then line with baking parchment and grease again. Sift in a little flour and shake out the excess.
Divide the batter equally between the three pans.
Place in the preheated oven (350 °F/180 °C) for approx. 35-40 minutes.
The cakes are ready and my kitchen smells heavenly.. Leave to cool completely before assembling the cakes with the lemon curd and raspberries.
Find your lemon curd and fresh raspberries. You can find my recipe for lemon curd here.
Spread a decent layer of lemon curd over the first and second cake, distribute the raspberries on top of each layer and place the third cake on top.
Finish off with Vanilla bean frosting, spread it over the top and sides of the cake. You can find the recipe for Vanilla bean frosting here.

So fresh and delicious…
Wishing you a wonderful day, take care of each other.
Hugs from me to you.
