    Works great in chocolate cake. I used with Hershey's Chocolate Cake (on this website) and frosted with buttercream icing....rave reviews!  -  28 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This custard is so easy and delicious, and it's a great way to use up leftover egg yolks. I made it with whole milk powder and vanilla flavor (instead of almond) and served it with apple pastries, and it was superb!  -  20 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Fabulous and so easy! I filled a white cake with this and added an almond flavored white frosting, sprinkled with some slivered almonds. I'll definitely use this recipe again!  -  11 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
