Sharing a recipe for a Norwegian Success cake, this time I added chocolate to the custard mixture, it is so delicious!!!
If you don’t know what a Norwegian Success Cake is, watch the video below ⤵️
This cake is made with a gooey almond crust and is topped with a chocolate frosting made from a custard base. In between the frosting, I added sliced bananas, and I added salted peanuts on top of the cake.
The combination is so delicious, hope you try it someday.
