Method

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a 20cm x 30cm slice pan and line the base and sides with baking paper, allowing the sides to overhang. Place the flour and baking powder in a large bowl.

  2. Step 2

    Use an electric mixer to whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until thick and pale. Add the flour mixture, in 3 batches, and fold to combine. Add 50ml milk and stir until smooth. Spoon batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 mins or until golden and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Prick the cake all over with the skewer.

  3. Step 3

    Whisk condensed milk, evaporated milk and remaining milk in a jug until well combined. Gradually pour over the cake and set aside to cool to room temperature. Cover and place in the fridge for 4 hours to soak.

  4. Step 4

    Use an electric mixer to whisk the cream and custard powder in a large bowl until soft peaks form.

  5. Step 5

    Transfer the cake to a serving platter. Top with cream mixture, watermelon, rockmelon, pineapple, mango and passionfruit to serve. 

    Serve with... mint leaves

Recipe tip

COOK. STORE. SAVE.
Smart swap:
If you need a time-saving shortcut, swap the watermelon and rockmelon balls for raspberries and strawberries. 


Smart save: For a budget swap, use 1 tsp vanilla extract in place of the vanilla bean paste.
