  1. Boil together the first 5 ingredients: oil, milk, water; flour, and baking powder.
  2. Set aside to cool off a bit.
  3. Sift together flour and baking powder
  4. Beat together the eggs, vanilla, and sugar for about 5 to 6 minutes.
  5. Now add the flour and Milk mixture in about 3 batches whilst folding in to incorporate the ingredients.
  6. Divide into two prepared pans.
  7. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the testing pin comes out clean.
  8. Since ovens differ, I’d say bake it on the temperature you always bake on. I put on 180C/350F or 160C/320F.


  1. Add milk to a pot and put on medium-high heat.
  2. Add sugar.
  3. Now add 3 very heaped tablespoons of Custard in milk and mix well.
  4. Add it to the milk on the stove.
  5. Stir until it firmed up and bubbles.
  6. Cover the custard with cling wrap and set aside to cool off completely to room temperature.
  7. When cold beat with a mixer and add the icing sugar as well as the 100g butter and beat well.
  8. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla essence.
  9. Add some cream or milk and continue mixing until you reach a smooth creamy consistency.
  10. When cold use to decorate as desired.
