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!

The taste was delish! I can't say I had an easy time putting it together though. I did the ingredient conversion but it still gave me the confectioner's sugar & the flour in ounces & also I only had on hand a 5.1 ounce package of pudding. So making this recipe was a family affair! My teenage son converted the fractions to decimals, my husband got out his postal scale & weighed the ingredients, my toddler daughter licked the bowl, & I put it all together & baked it. I didn't have a 10 inch cake pan, so I used a glass 11x7 baking dish. After cooling I inverted it onto a platter & the cake wouldn't come out of the pan. I let it sit for a while & eventually just scraped out what was stuck to the bottom of the pan. I think I'll try using a greased 9 inch cake pan next time. Although the finished product wasn't as beautiful as the above picture, it tasted sooo good (we all just grabbed spoons & ate it right off the platter! lol). We can't wait to get the proper sized pudding & try it again. I loved your story after seeing you posted as the chef of the day yesterday & I just had to try this recipe. We're so glad you posted it. Thank you, Hanka!
