Custard Cream Cake

Serves 6

Lately, I lovely sweet pastries with custard or cream filling. Craving so bad that I stock so many custard puffs in the fridge. One rainy day, I ran out of puffs but was craving much for such sweet stuffs so I decide to be creative with anything I had in the cupboard or fridge. I decide to make soft cake that uses ‘ovalet’,a very popular cake softening paste used a lot in Indonesia, then layer it with custard and cream.

The process was not so complicated at all and I had a large box of custard cream cake ready to supply my tummy for a whole week. The cake was soft and sweet and goes well with the toppings.

4 tbs flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups of milk

3 tbs sugar
1-2 tbs sweetened condensed milk
