READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Hanka

I found this recipe in Czech magazine. Layers of custard and light sponge sound so interesting to me. It is very easy to make, looks great and it's delicious. I shared cake with my friends and they still rave about it.

This is lovely...especially when served with strawberries! It was still warm when we had it but I think it would taste better served cold. Thanks!
