How to make it

  • Tips:
  • make cake ahead of time, Freeze: then when partially frozen, slice cake in half, filling with prepared chilled custard.
  • Then wrap and chill cake overnight to keep cake and custard chilled and moist.
  • Before serving make the glaze and pour over the cake, smooth top and sides if you wish or just let it drip over.
  • One can of course, prepare the glaze and chill it - but it will harden.
  • If you want a soft frosting I sugest to use a chocolate buttercream frosting which can be chilled and remain soft.
  • So:
  • for cake: Beat butter, sugar and vanilla and cream light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time.
  • Sift dry ingredients and add with milk to creamed mixture blending into a smooth batter
  • Pour in a greased and floured 9 inch springfiorm pan.
  • Bake in a preheated 350F oven, about 1 hour or tested done in center with toothpick in center.
  • The cake wont be that tall, but when filled and glazed, the pieces are nice size.
  • Cool completely in pan, remove .
  • Custard:
  • Mix everything ( except buttter and vanilla ) in a saucepan off heat . whisk till well mixed.
  • Then over medium heat cook and stir constantly until thick.
  • Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla.
  • If for some reason your custrad may be lumpy, just use this tips most chefs use, that is strain the custard into a bowl and discard lumps remaining in strainer.
  • Also if you feel custard is too thick, easily thin by whisking in a bit of milk or cream. If you like a bit of rum flavor, add it too.
  • Glaze:
  • I simply put all the ingreidnts in a micro safe dish and heat on high a minute ( or two ) and then whisk smooth, or one can make it the old fashinoned way by gently heating glaze ingrdients over a doubler boiler
  • Assemble:
  • Cut cake, fill with cream almost to the edges. Don't dispair if some custard flows onto the dish.
  • While the glaze is warm, pour and spread it over rhe cake.
  • Garnish if desired. serve at one
