Great Recipe - Big Vanilla Slice Fan, and this recipe delivers. Need to cool custard before pouring on base, and need more butter, and milk/water to make icing - but very pleasing result, and very good reviews. I would also suggest doubling the custard ingredients to get a nice thick 3-4cm deep custard in a 20cmx20cm tray.. Thanks!!
