South African Beesting Cake With Custard Filling
105 mins (prep 45, cooking 60)
15 ingredients

I do not know where the "bee-sting" comes from, but this is a very popular cake in local home industries: those little shops filled with the specialties of good home cooks. This cake takes a little time, but it is worth it: it is cut into thin layers, which is spread with a custard filling. It's a delectable cake! Prep time is a guess! Please note that the custard filling can be made ahead, even the day before, and refrigerated. This cuts down on preparation time.
