If you like custard, this is THE thing to do with stale cake (or in my case, really dry cakey cookies). I used craisins as the add-in with molasses cookie crumbs.

I hate to waste anything so love that this uses stale cake...this is a great recipe for using up leftovers and the flavour changes depending on which cake you use..wonderful..thankyou!

I made this recipe using some rich dark fruit cake that needed to be used up. Added a generous splash of brandy to the custard. Very good indeed.
