This is a cake that is a combination of two different styles of dessert. So if you are looking for a cake with a difference, try this one.
This is wonderful merging of choc coated custard filled profiteroles encased in a vanilla buttermilk cake. The profiteroles are added to the cake mixture before baking in the oven. Flaked almonds are also sprinkled on top for baking. This cake provides a range of textures from the lovely toasted almond crunch, to the soft custard profiterole filling and finally the buttermilk cake. They all blend perfectly for a wonderful cake for any occasion.
I use store bought choc coated custard filled profiteroles, simply for convenience. You can, of course, make them yourself, however that will add a significant amount of time to the preparation and making of this cake. I was happy with the store bought versions, however it is your choice.
