I've receive a request to work up a recipe for this item she remembers from
her childhood, but the person who wants it can't even give me a good
description of it. She remembers that her British mother and grandmother
made it, that it was (duh) chocolate cake and cream and, oh yeah, it was
Do any of you have any insight to offer?
I hate it when that happens! Of course I meant that the request came from
someone who remembers this item from childhood but has no idea how it was
made. Her folks aren't around to offer their recipes anymore, so she's
looking for someone to formulate a substitute.

I asked her about it, and it turns out it's not what she had in mind. I'm
sure she'll try it anyway, though.
I got some more information out of her, and it turns out that what she was

should be easy to do, once we get the custard part down pat.
