Chocolate Custard Cake with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream will impress even the pickiest guest!
My daughter, Son-in-Law, and I all enjoyed this yummy Chocolate Custard Cake with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream after dinner together this week! My daughter, Madi, had her baby two weeks ago and it has been so fun to stay at their house, spoil my grandson, and share some kitchen love with them!
My Son-in-Law loved the Chocolate Custard Cake with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream so much, that the next day when his friends came over, he insisted that they all have some. It definitely was a hit and everyone wanted more. 🙂
While I’ve been here, at my daughter’s house, I’ve made an effort to stock their fridge and freezer with meals that they can easily make once I go home. The Chocolate Custard Cake with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream is in their freezer, ready to go, for whenever they need a delicious dessert to top off a family dinner! The chocolate freezer cake freezes extremely well! Make a batch for your family, freeze the left overs, and pull it out the next time you need a little chocolate in your life. Just add ice cream and your favorite toppings for a quick and tasty treat!
Chocolate Custard Cake with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream will satisfy your chocolate craving and leave you wanting a little more! 🙂
