    I thought it was a egg to lol

    Me to I thought it was a egg

    INGENIOUS!! I was immediately struck by the image of something resembling bread pudding or baked custard, and the title was fitting, although I expected the "yolks" to be apricots, not peaches; although you could do it either way. I have NEVER had any food cooked from a box or instant powder turn into something edible, BUT, I do know how to make the from-scratch version....(I will modify my custard ingredients to match the bake time of the cake). WOW! i LOVE the original and unique ideas submitted on this site!

    Looks very good. :D

    I thought those were made with eggs too. There are a lot of Portuguese pastries that are made with egg yolk and sugar and look like that, I thought this was something similar.

    looks delicious. .

    I've made an Italian breakfast casserole before that has whole eggs placed on top, and then baked. The yolks gave the dish an interesting sweetness. I'm in the US so I'm going to check out conversions and try yours too. Thanks for sharing.
