Victoria Chocolate Pudding Cake

This recipe is from an Indonesian magazine years ago
My mum kept the torn pages til it's yellowish!
She baked this cake so many times, we all loved it so much!
This is my first time baking it myself - so happy it turned out well
It's not difficult, I must say :)

You see my teeth mark on the pudding? *grin*

This how it looked like before pouring the pudding (left) and after the pudding is set - ready to cut (right)

What you need:
(below is half recipe - I used 8" round pan)

For the cake:
162.5g butter
162.5g icing sugar
4 egg yolks
3.5 egg whites
162.5g plain flour
3/4 tsp baking powder - sieved together with the flour

Beat butter and icing sugar til thick, creamy and white color
Add in eggs one at a time while continuously beating in low speed til well mixed
Add in flour+baking powder - mix well
Pour the batter on a lightly greased and floured 8" round pan
Bake in preheated oven of 180degC for 20-25minutes (til golden brown and when skewer comes out clean)
Let cool on cooling rack - still in the pan
After it's completely cooled, using clean chopstick, make holes at the cake - depth approx 4cm, distance approx 2cm

For the pudding:
750ml fresh milk
15g agar2 powder
115g sugar
20g cocoa powder - dilute in a little water
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten

In a pot, heat milk and agar2 powder til boiling
Add in cocoa powder that has been diluted with water - mix well
Take the pot off the fire
Add in egg yolk - mix well
Put back the pot on low fire, stir continuously
After cooked, take the pot off the fire

Let the pudding cool a little (around 5minutes) - stir occasionally
Pour the pudding on the cake - slowly, start from the centre - it will flow to all directions
Fill in those areas which not covered yet
Wait til the pudding set before loosen the pan

Yum! One more cake loved by my kids - both of them :)
