    Seriously Chocolatey Seriously Decadent Chocolate Custard Cake

    A vanilla sponge cake, filled with a very thick layer of very thick vanilla custard, topped with a thick layer of chocolate glaze (a bit like a cake version of an eclair)

    What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?

    When I make this, everyone wants seconds AND the recipe!



    1. The sponge is a basic Victoria sponge recipe, the custard is a classic fresh custard made extra thick with cornflour so that it sets enough to use as a filling, the topping is your basic chocolate eclair topping, a thick layer.
