Cake and Custard

Jump to Recipe

Howdy folks! 😊

Here’s a quick hack for those days when you have prepared a meal but have neither the time nor the skills to prepare dessert.

Custard and Cake is always a win – Delicious and so easy to make 😋👌🏾

In a crunch, all the ingredients can actually be store-bought 😊. In the Dairy section of most large grocery stores, you can usually find already made pourable custard while the cake can be found in the bakery section. The strawberries – from fruit and Veg and you’re done. 💪🏾

If you have a bit more time, I recommend you prepare the custard fresh 👌🏾, and bake a plain vanilla cake. I will share a basic Vanilla cake recipe separately soon, if you need some pointers there too 😊. But with fresh baked…I promise, you won’t regret putting in the extra effort.😉

Here are the instructions of how you’d put this dessert together:
