Lemon Custard Cake: Patisserie Dessert with Thermomix

Lemon Custard Cake : Patisserie Dessert with Thermomix

Would you like to make a cake that looks as if it had just come out of a pastry-shop? This Lemon Custard Cake has the taste of the best patisseries.

A real delicatessen! Actually, it was a mistake :-), but the final result was really tasty! I wanted to prepare a cake with the custard at the top. But something went wrong and the custard arrived in the middle of the cake... DELICIOUS!!!!

So, by making mistakes, sometimes (but only sometimes!!!), you come up with good things! And this is definitely a mistake I’d do again … maybe with a bit more carefulness!
