    What do you mean by "preheated microwave"?

    it means pre heat your oven or microwave for 5 min before baking the cake

    nice...specially 4 me ;) ...


    We don't have "custard" powder readily available here in the States (what we call custard is a baked dessert of egg/milk/sugar). Would instant pudding work?

    U can use baked dessert of egg/milk/sugar and pudding as well

    I recommend substituting the custard section with either 2 cups prepared pudding (perhaps add a little less milk than suggested to make it thicker and more custard like) or try a no bake custard recipe like the one found here:


    I didn't write this recipe, so the author my disagree, but I hope it helps!!
