  5. Pour half of the mixture into the greased pyrex dish. Spoon the warm custard on top. Add the rest of the cake mixture on top, placing little mounds here and there.

Altered ingredient amounts. Double the sugar in the custard and in the cake mixture. Then double the total amount of custard you make. Layer the cake as you put it into your dish: one large spoon cake mix, one large spoon custard mix, until its all in. (Like you would a marble cake) Still cook for 40 minutes. It becomes a dessert, not just a cake, ive made two in two days. it is delicious!! - 01 Feb 2011
