custard splat sponge

This cake must be eaten in wodges. It’s a wodge kind of cake.

what you need:

  • 4oz butter
  • 4oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4oz self raising flour
  • 5tbs custard powder
  • 2tbs milk
  • 5tbs icing sugar

what you do:

  • preheat the oven to 180C
  • cream together the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl
  • beat the eggs in a jug & add slowly to the butter/sugar mix
  • sieve in flour and 3 tbs of custard powder
  • add the 2 tbs of milk and mix into smooth batter
  • pour into a greased cake tin (I use an 8 inch heart-shaped silicon mould)
  • bake for approximately 18-20 minutes until a skewer comes out clean
  • once cool mix the icing sugar and remaining custard powder in a jug with a tiny drop of boiling water – splat the icing onto the cake from a height, for no other reason that it sounds nice and splatty.

to serve:

Obviously with a cup of tea and elevated feet.
