Microwave cake and hazelnut custard.

Had a notion for cake and custard, but as it as half past seven at night I decided to make a quick cake and use the microwave.


cream together
4 oz margarine
4oz coconut sugar

mix in
2 eggs and
6 oz light brown self raising flour and
 2 oz wheatgerm

I had some chocolate sauce from profiteroles and I poured this into  the bottom of a bowl and then poured the cake mix on top.
Cook in the microwave for approx 6 mins.

While the cake is cooking make the


Measure 1pt of Alpro soya hazelnut milk in a jug
Pour most of this into a pan and bring to the boil.
Stir 2 tablespoon custard powder and 1 tablespoon into the cold milk.
Add the hot milk to the jug and mix then return the whole lot to the pan.
Stir constantly until the mixture boils.

Serve with the cake.

Made a nice easy cake, the coconut sugar enhances the flavour and complimented the hazelnut custard. To ting the changes you probably could of added some ground hazelnuts to the cake.

Some of the ingredients were supplied by Healthy Supplies, but the recipe ideas and findings are all my own.


  1. Yum, that is such a simple and warming pudding. I might just try this!

  2. I love a quick cake in the microwave, I have hazelnut milk this week, thought I'd have a change from my usual Almond, I bet it's lovely in custard!
