  • 6 large eggs, separated

  • 5 cups milk

  • 125g butter

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 1/2 cup corn flour

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 5ml salt

  • 1 cup sugar

  • Cinnamon sugar for sprinkling


  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Grease a large springform cake pan.
  • Heat 1L of the milk with the butter, sugar and cinnamon in a saucepan.
  • Remove from the heat just before it reaches boiling point. Remove the cinnamon stick.
  • Mix the corn flour, flour and salt with the remaining milk, add the egg yolk. Stir this mixture into the hot milk.
  • Slowly cook stirring continuously until it thickens.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold it into the custard. Pour this mixture into the prepared pan and tie folded baking paper around the outside to create sides as it cooks up quite high while in the oven and then settles down again. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cook completely before removing from the springform pan.
  • Serves at room temperature.
