Tasty Tuesday- Christmas Edition

Ok so this recipe I got from Ros Guerrero from Ficklets and it is soo delicious!

Latiya - Guam Dessert
(Pronounced Latija)


Ingredients:
Sara Lee’s pound cake

CUSTARD
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
1 2/3 cups water
1/4 cup cornstarch
6 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons butter
2 eggs, beaten
ground cinnamon

Directions:
Prepare the cake portion by slicing the cake into 1/4-inch thick. Layer the slices onto a platter, overlapping each piece just a bit. Make sure that the platter has a little lip to contain the custard and keeping it from spilling over. Completely cover the platter with the sliced cake. Cover and set aside.

Make the custard by combining in a sauce pan, 1 1/3 cups water, bring this almost to a boil. Add the evaporated milk and the sugar. Mix the remaining water with the cornstarch and vanilla. Gradually add this to the milk mixture, making sure to stir constantly so not to scorch the custard.

Once thickened, remove from heat and add the butter; whisk in the beaten eggs a little bit at a time, making sure to stir constantly and combine well. Pour the hot custard over the prepared cake and spread over to completely cover the cake slices.

Sprinkle the cinnamon over the entire custard and let set. The amount depends on how much you like cinnamon. You could place this in the refrigerator or keep at room temperature, and once cooled completely, it's ready to serve.
