Custard powder is used for a lot more than just making custard, some of these recipes use it for thickening, flavour and/or colour.
I love custard and I love cake....here, I have combined them both for a double treat....eat it warm with a little vanilla ice cream for a triple treat!
This is a Dutch type of custard called hopjesvla. You can use instant coffee or strong brewed coffee depending on how much you like the coffee taste.
This is my Granny's Yoyo recipe. she used to join two biscuits with passionfruit icing in the middle-though the icing is optional. They can also be served as single biscuits. These biscuits are sometimes known as Melting Moments. Very yummy!
These would make a great morning or afternoon tea snack. Even invite some friends around to share as this recipe makes 12 serves.
The first time I tried cooking with custard powder in my cakes I was really pleased with the outcome, now it is one of my preferred options.
