Nescafe Glazed Custard Cake

Just wondering whether food bloggers actually cook for their family or cook to impress their followers. What say you bloggers? I of course would love honest feedback, then again, you can lie as well. Nothing to do with me if you choose to lie, for me its honesty is the best policy. That's why maybe I don't have many friends, and bloggers slowly stay away from me except when they need a shoulder to find out why I don't comment on their postings, why their own blogger friends back stab them, and so on so forth, a whole list of examples I can quote. At this point I choose not to waste my time speaking about others, my care is my own followers. Thank you followers, thank you for sticking through thick and thin with me. 

Today, we shall together forever as always learn to make this Nescafe Glazed Custard Cake. Supposedly should be a coffee cake, but why waste money buying coffee when Nescafe is always there in the pantry? I was spared as well because custard powder has been sleeping for a while. So, here comes the recipe for this Nescafe Glazed Custard Cake sweet treat for the day (Soft Rolls, Mango Coconut Pudding, Pandan Milk Jelly, Dates Sunflower Seed Cake, Coconut Grapefruit Jelly & Pineapple Bread Pudding).

For the cake
3/4 cup self raising flour
1/3 cup custard powder
1/3 cup of softened butter (salted)
1/3 cup caster sugar
3 eggs - lightly beaten
1/4 cup yogurt/sour cream
1/4 tsp baking powder

For the glaze
1 tbsp nescafe
1 1/2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup icing sugar

Melt butter and sugar in a pan over low heat.
Stir until sugar dissolves, remove from heat and let it cool down.
Meanwhile, combine eggs and yohurt/sour cream in a mixing bowl.
Tip in the butter sugar mixture and gently stir in.
Sift flour and baking powder over the mixture.
Using a wooden spoon, stir until combined and PLEASE, do not over beat.
Spoon mixture into a greased square baking pan.
Bake on a preheated oven at 175C for 40 mins or until a skewer comes out clean, when inserted in the centre of cake.
Simmer the glazing ingredients until for a thick syrup.
Pour over the cake immediately.
Let the cake cool down before cutting through.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k"on every other social media please!!

  1. My mom usually makes custard cake which I love. Yours is with the coffee flavoured glaze sounds too good. I liked ur idea of adding coffee to the glaze instead of the baTter. Yes, Nescafe is popular here too. I like the taste of it. Great post!

  2. Coffee is my favorite drink! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Mmm, this sounds wonderful. I love moist custard cake, and coffee has always been one of my favorite flavorings in baked goods. Great recipe.

  4. Moist and wonderful...and the glaze sounds fabulous!!! You are becoming quite the baker :)

  5. I know this would appeal to me, the glaze is fantastic.

  6. I love the Nescafe coffee and the cake, that you have baked. My mom used to add custard powder in cakes. It gives more smooth texture. Good to see someone else using custard powder in cake.

  7. That looks so very moist and delicious! I could really go for a slice (or maybe two) right about now :)

  8. I have thought about using flavored coffee mixes in cake batter but I have not yet due to the balancing of the sugar in the mix vs the sugar needed for the cake.
    Using it in a glaze is a much smarter option. I have never had custard cake, but just the name has me wanting to taste it-with or without the glaze-yum! New cake ingredient here I will make note of..custard powder. Great post!
