About the bake
Custard cake really is as delicious as it sounds. You might be wondering how a custard cake stands? It uses all the traditional ingredients of a cake batter, the uniqueness comes through in the baking stage. Once baked the cake is a light custardy texture with a bit of wobble. The base is quite dense like and rich. We've used Nielsen-Massey vanilla bean paste in our recipe because it's the real deal. If you're going to make anything custard flavoured, you really want to avoid using a synthetic vanilla composition such as 'vanilla flavouring'. Go for Nielsen-Massey as it's made using the whole vanilla pod. You can also see the flecks in the paste which are the vanilla seeds. YUM!
