Hi Nimitha, I tried your recipe after a long day at work. Just goes to say that they went down a storm with my wife and 2 daughters. Didn't come out as yellow because I used instant custard mix, due to a lack of ingredients. But the flavour was awesome! Especially fresh out the oven :-)

Thank you so much for trying it out :) :) I'm glad all of you liked it :)

Thank you... It makes about 12 cup cakes of the basic size.. I made cupcakes of two spoon full of the batter in each mold... Hope this helps you.. :) :)

i was wondering how it would taste if i added dark chocolate. any clue?

May be we can just take some amount of batter and mix it with melted chocolate. Then the amount of milk should be reduced a little Then create marble effect or swirls using both the custard batter and the chocolate batter. This is just an idea.

You do know that custard powder contains egg powder, just incase anyone has allergies.

Thank you for the valuable comment. I used an egg free brand. Bird's Custard is also egg-free custard. So in case any one is allergic do check the ingredients. I will surely update this information.

I've never made an eggless cake using custard powder..looks delicious..I'll definitely try it.. :)
