    Did not like this at all. Far to much custard powder. Have searched internet and found that it should be 2 not 8 tablespoons of custard powder. I have since tried the altered one and it was lovely. Filling ingredients should be put in mixer and whisked like butter ice.  -  18 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    I tried this recipe and it just tasted of pure custard powder nobody in my family liked it. I would of thought you would of have to cook the custard first other wise it would taste awful. What type of custard powder is it meant to be??  -  14 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Something else. I used a 23cmx23cm silicone square cake pan, and my white chocolate for the topping didn't melt properly, so I dropped it on in small clumps and spread it around a bit with a knife and then chilled it, and it set with a lovely chunky crunchy chocolate topping! Yum!  -  07 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
