Custard cake is light, spongy and too soft. The custard powder gives a pleasant yellow color to the cake so no need to add other coloring agents. I bought a pack of custard powder a two months back and still half of the quantity remains in fridge. I have prepared custard with fruits and chocolates many times but wanted to try a different recipe with custard powder. This cake and custard powder halwa are the recipes that I had in mind. The cake turned out too good and everyone at home liked it. Yet to try a halwa recipe.
