  • 2 tablespoons vanilla custard powder
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • Third Layer
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter


Bottom Layer
Melt first 3 ingredients in top of double boiler. Add egg and stir to cook and thicken (Roughly 3 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir in crumbs, coconut, and nuts. Press firmly into an ungreased 8" x 8" pan.

Second Layer
Cream butter, cream, custard powder, and icing sugar together well. Beat until light. Spread over bottom layer.

Third Layer
