Sponge cake. when I make a pav I always use the yolks to make a sponge for a cake or as trifle sponges.

easier - raw yolk mixed into pasta or rice or as a yolk dip with meats. to assist the batter when doing fish and chips.

Marlborough food writer Jan Bilton tested this recipe from a Christchurch cafe for The Foodtown Magazine.

Meshino's custard square (vanilla slice)

2 sheets puff pastry

1 1/2 cups each: milk, cream

60g butter

1 teaspoon pure vanilla essence

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup each: cornflour, water

6 egg yolks

Icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Bring the milk, cream, butter, vanilla essence and sugar to a simmer in a saucepan. Combine the cornflour and the water to make a smooth paste. Stir into the milk mixture together with the egg yolks. Stir over low heat, until thick. Cool completely.

Line an 18cm x 18cm cake pan with plastic film. Trim the cooked pastry sheets to fit the cake pan. Place one sheet on the base. Spread the filling over the pastry. Top with the second sheet of pastry. Refrigerate overnight. Slice and serve dusted with icing sugar.

Makes 8 pieces.

Personally, I like custard square with a thin glazed icing and sprinkled with coconut.

Worth giving it a try. I cannot stand that bright yellow gelatinous custard you see with some custard squares, so hopefully the one above will be ok.

Take a look at mine over there <<< just put in custard square. These are truely beautiful so easy but just remember to double the custard quantity. Made with sour cream. Delish, Devine. Would love to hear your feedback if you make. Everyone asks me for this receipe.

Excellent excuse to make rich brioche.

http://leitesculinaria.com/71162/recipes-sarabeth-brioche.html or maybe pasta carbonara.
Or thinking outside the square (and stepping out of the kitchen) what about a face mask.

Yummy and beautiful. :)

Whoo hoo, wow I just made this sponge. I have never been able to make sponges, turned out great and was yummy.
I was once given a recipe for a fool proof sponge, and yes you guessed it, I'm a fool. lol
But not now. :-)
Edited to say 15mins in my oven was enough for bake time.
