Custard Cake

Custard Cake………..One of my favourite cake because it is half made with leche flan and the other half is made with a chiffon cake. It a sweet dessert with a caramel perfectly melts in your mouth with the leche flan toppings. Best paired if you will have a cup of long black, cafe americano and espresso or even just a cup of tea. I almost eat half tray of the custard cake, I love it!!!!. And best of all, my wife made this one. she made it with lots of love and patience…………..Did you know that the main ingredients of this cake is eggs. And egg are a great source of protein. Numerous vitamins, including vitamin A, potassium and many B vitamins like folic acid, choline and biotin, are also packed into this oval-shaped staple. In fact, very few foods share the same diverse nutrient makeup available in a single egg. Many of these are specifically needed for the health of the nerves and the brain. And on top of it, It’s a cheap way to get protein sources. Eggs is cheap here in NZ, How about in your country?

    I can’t eat wheat, so this would be a good recipe to try with rice, corn, and tapioca flours. I have been experimenting with the proportions of gluten free flours and some times it works well with some recipes. Some times, not so much.

    Thank you following my blog.
