Bird Milk Cake Recipe

This will be my version of a sweet goodness from our childhood, cake called bird milk, multi layered honey cake layers topped with light vanilla buttercream, covered in dark chocolate ganache. A cake so popular and so loved, that up until these days, it’s a must sweet on New Year’s dessert table. The original version of bird milk cake is made differently : a thin layer of sponge cake topped with a thick vanilla mousse made with agar gelatin.






I’ll present that recipe sometimes soon, but for now let’s try this tender and crispy , at the same time, deliciousness and see how you like it.

Bird Milk Cake Recipe

Start by making the buttercream, since it takes time to cool down and get ready

In a heavy bottom saucepan bring the milk to simmer

Meanwhile combine together: sugar, flour and starch

Pour the hot milk over that mixture, slowly and mix to incorporate

Return the mixture into the same pot and cook over medium heat until it boils , stir constantly

Set aside to cool down to room temperature

Be sure to cover it with a cling wrap so it doesn’t form skin

Beat the butter on high speed 5-7 minutes or until fluffy and almost white color

Reduce the speed and add the cooled custard mixture, a tablespoon at a time , scrape the bowl in between

Add vanilla extract, mix a few seconds and the cream is ready
