Horlicks Layer Cake

I made this layer cake twice, because I failed at first attempt.
The first attempt, I got all my ingredients right but it was dry and I burnt a layer, ( I cut away the burnts part).

The second attempt, I used wrong grade eggs, I used grade A instead of gred B( medium), I supposed to stop cracking the last (10th) eggs, but I totally forgot....haiz.....but , still turned out great, really moist and taste yummy....

Recipe from Wendy
450 gm butter
140gm sugar ( I used 80gm)
10 medium eggs, grade C
510 gm canned condensed milk
240gm superfine/ cake flour ( I used cake flour)
200 gm Horlicks powder

Pre-heat oven 175C. top & bottom heat.
Use a 9x9 inch square pan., line bottom and grease sides.
Beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
Add in eggs, one by one. Beating well each addition.
Mix in condensed milk.
Sift flour and Horlicks together.
Place the lined & greased pan in the oven.
Fold the sifted flour into the batter.
Spread a laddle of batter evenly onto the hot pan.
Tilt pan left and right to level batter. Baked this layer using top & bottom fire, for about 7-10 minutes, till golden brown.
Remove from oven and press cake layer to remove excess air.
Turn the oven to grill mode 200 C.
Spread another laddle of batter over the cooked layer, grill for about 7-10 minutes.
Repeat the process until all batter is used up.
For the last layer baked at 175C for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool completely before cutting and serve.

** Pan needs to be heated up at step 2 for even distribution of batter. You can either heat up in the preheating oven or over a pot of hot water.

** If you're using convention microwave oven, head over to Wendy's blog.

 The first layer cake, bottom part got burnt and drier, so I cut it away.
