Love love love this recipe. Every time I make it for a potluck, people asks for the recipe. Love that there is actually a layer of custard!

I have been using this recipe for a while now and have always had my friends rave at how good it is. Many people at parties ask me for the recipe. I bake this recipe in two glass pans though, it’s thinner but still delicious!

Cut the sugar almost in half and made only 1/2 of the recipe. This separates, top kind of like a fine tapioca and the bottom like butter mochi. Threw away my first batch without baking because it was lumpy and separated, thought I made it wrong. Baked the second batch when the dough came out the same way, lumpy even when I mixed the wet and dry ingredients in very slowly. Although it tastes OK, I don't like the texture. Won't be making it again.
