  1. Delicious custard cake Padhu inviting.

  2. Mam,I tried this recipe today. The cake was cracked on the top.can you please tell me,where I have done the mistake..(followed ur instructions in every step)

  3. Am making the cake with butterscotch flavoured custard powder..should I still use vanilla essence or should I completely skip it..(I can't find butterscotch essence anywhere )...

    1. You can use vanilla essence or butterscotch essence.

  4. Thanks for the recipe... It tasted good...but the top layer was very crispy...could you pls let us know what went wrong here?..

    1. May be you over baked it or the oven temperature might have been high.

  5. I DID IT. MADE THE CAKE WITH STRAWBERRY CUSTARD AND VANILLA ESSENCE. IT TURNED OUT WELL. The only difference I made was that I ran my microwave oven in microwave+convention mode and the cake was ready in 15 mins. That tip might help other readers of the blog. If you run the microwave oven on only convention mode then it functions exactly like a conventional oven. Same time and same temperature, just everything same. THANKS A LOT PADHU.I WHOLEHEARTEDLY TREASURE WHAT I AM LEARNING FROM YOU.

  6. I tried the same receipe but as i was outta vanila essense i added orange ,for which the quantity u mentioned is too much and my cake turned very strong flavore of orange and bitter teast so wanted to ask u what went wrong? BDW i used ghee insted of butter and vanilla custard powder.looking for ur guidance.

    1. I have mentioned to use only vanilla essence. You should have added less if it is orange essence as it is very strong.

  7. Can I use oil instead of butter.If so how much?
