    It looked scary before I put it in the oven so I am waiting for the outcome but looks delish so far!

    It was good. I added bananas to the mixture and next time will add sliced ones at the bottom of the pan. I topped it off with some salted Carmel sauce, pretty tasty.

    I feel it needed more texture. I followed the recipe to a T and it didnt look anything like the picture. The custard went rubbery and the cake part was insanely thin. 180°c for 40mins

    I accidentally skipped over the flour part so I had to add the flour last, and I think it ruined the cake. I don’t know if it was the recipe or if it was my mistake, but it turned out pretty bad. Make sure to read the recipe carefully

    Mine turned out good, although not in three distinct layers as shown in the picture. It had a very thin cake layer and the rest underneath was like a thick custard, although it still tasted good. I think I may try adding a tad more flour next time to see if that changes anything.

    Not as jiggly in the middle as I would like. I think I need to lessen the bake time

    This cake was delicious but I think it didn't turn out quite right. I took it out of the oven after 50 minutes of baking, and when we sliced it, the layers weren't very distinct; the bottom layer was the most noticeable and there was barely any of the crumb layer at the top. What did I do wrong?

    Delicious! 10/10 would make again. The only suggestion I would give- I wish the recipe were more specific on what I'm looking for the final product to look/feel like. It advises it should be a 'little wobbly' but I found myself constantly second guessing if the consistency was what I was looking for. Luckily I made the recipe in a glass dish and so relied on the 'wobble method', the crust, a knife coming out of the center clean, and a good look at the layers through the dish for the confidence I needed that my final product was up to par. I highly recommend the same for anyone else making this recipe for the first time.

    Tweak- I added a little lime zest and an extra tsp of vanilla. It turned out great

    It was ok. A little dense for my taste.

    Very delicious The baking time took longer in my oven by about 15 minutes. The dessert is very rich but light which sounds strange but it is so. I will be making this one again

    Kind of jiggly wasn't a really good indicator. I overlooked it slightly, but still came out okay I'm sure that it would have been better with more of the custardy consistency.
