Custard Tea Cake (Thermomix Method Included)

Custard Tea Cake

Two of my favourite things combined… tea cake and custard, what’s not to like? This is one of those recipes that I never make… There reason is that I could literally drink tea and devour the whole cake… I think I did it once, but lets not go into that now! It is just a wonderful combination… like a vanilla slice, but with cake instead of pastry.

Custard Tea Cake

I don’t remember the first time I ever tried custard, but I just remember always liking it. It doesn’t matter what form it comes in, custard tarts, vanilla slices or my favourite, piped into a donut… Thank you Adriano Zumbo for my first taste at that amazing combination and you though jam donuts where good! I like all sorts of custard too… Creme Patisserie, Creme brûlée, Cornflour Custard, Egg Custard, even “Edmonds” out of the packet custard!!!! I’m really just a fan!

I hope you enjoy this custard tea cake, because I certainly enjoyed making it and eating it with a cup of tea!

    Beautiful cake. Now making it with spiced apple folded through the top half of cake. Made it easier for me to spread & goes so well with custard. Helps when you have an apple tree & can’t stop preserving. So now I have another use for my spiced apple. Lol. Thanks heaps for posting

    I made this on the weekend when friends ‘popped in’! Everyone loved it – but I added my own tea cake favourite: I pressed some steamed apple in top before baking, and then sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar as soon as it came out of the oven!
    It was Devine! !!!!!!

      Hi Kierslee, that is wonderful news 🙂 Thanks so much for letting me know 🙂 I have often put some apple with the cake, but usually serve it on the side with cream as well 🙂 Thank you for dropping and saying hi!!! Liz xx

    Oh Liz,

    It’s in the oven as I type and smell delicious…
    Just the custard alone was great.. It didn’t all make it into cake..
    Thankfully others are on way over for dinner so can be shared.. A much safer option.
    Thanks for sharing the recipe..

    Hello, is this cake good the next day? Or is it best the day it is baked?

    Reply
    • Elizabeth Connolly

      Hi neisha… Cake is always best baked on the day, but if you let it completely cool (don’t cut it) and put it in an airtight container in the fridge it should be fine… Also make sure you serve it a room temperature or slice and pop in the micro wave for 10 seconds to warm 🙂
      Thanks for dropping in! Liz xx

    What a yummy cake! Love it because it’s not sickly and I can have it at anytime of the day (breakfast, tea-time or for dessert) and I’m able to eat it entire in the afternoon…

    I’ve always liked custard as well and was always excited if I found out it was on the dessert menu. I have never had a custard tea cake before so I’d love to try this. Perfect for afternoon tea! xx
