Note from Delish:

I decided to share this baking process because I’ve realized not all people have ovens at home. But that shouldn’t be the reason not to bake at home. And of corusem, beach sand is free.

Also, unlike the other custard cakes, this recipe will result to a two-layered cake. Very easy and stress-free to make.
