Custard Cake…

What better thing to do on a hot summer afternoon, than to bake a cake?  Crazy, I know!

I stumbled on this old recipe in a bunch of clippings that I was clearing out. I thought, “I have all the ingredients … let’s try it!” …and mmmmmmm it was good.

It is very light and has a very delicate flavor – similar to Portuguese custard tarts!

Have you tried any new recipes lately? How did they turn out? Would you make them again?

My husband really enjoyed this treat and has already asked when I would be making it again. If you give this a try, let me know how you did…and if you like it!

Thanks for visiting – until next time, Connie 🙂
