I fell in love with this dessert, which i made for the first time for one of the cooking blog’s online,theme based competition.
I was scratching my head for the new ideas. So thought , why not try something twisty. We all eat custard in the same way , with toppings of fresh fruits and even chocolate cake too. So i combined it with cake and dry nuts.
I was showered with praises, & qualified for the final round. Every one at home when tested this dessert, they all loved the combo of cake & custard with loads of nuts.
I prepared it again when my family was invited for dinner at my Aunt’s place. And everyone was asking for one more serving. I was more than happy to look at every one, gorging on dessert.
