  • Vanilla Cake (homemade or ready-made)         3 – 4 bite-sized pieces
  • Vanilla Custard powder                                   1 tablespoon
  • Milk                                                                2 cups

  • Assorted Fruits, chopped                                  1 cup


  1. Place a deep saucepan with milk over medium heat.
  2. As soon as the milk gets warm, add the sugar to it. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  3. Now lower the heat and add the custard powder and keep stirring while you add to avoid lump formation.
  4. Keep stirring the custard until it thickens slightly. Then turn off the heat and allow the custard to cool.
  5. Place the custard in the fridge to cool until serving time.
  6. When ready to serve, place a bit-sized piece of vanilla cake in each serving bowl. Top with about 2 tablespoons of custard.
  7. Garnish with chopped fruits and served chilled.
