Funny name it is, isn't it ?? ;-) ..
This cake consists of cake layer and on top cream caramel layer.. but it's named so because when u prepare this cake, you prepare caramel recipe, and cake recipe, and then you pour both in the baking tray, then "BY GOD's WELL" cake layer and cream caramel layer will seperate on their own in the oven !!!!
Maybe some might call it “Custard Cake”, but the one I know is “Ordet Aader”, took the recipe 15 years ago from my friend “LIZA” .Whenever I make it, I remember her. Thank you dear for this lovely recipe.

Can you use 2 cups of normal milk instead of water and milk powder
Posted by Huda Abu HamdiaReport
No dear .. the consistincy will be different, cz if u dissolve the 2 cups of milk powder+ 2 cups water you'll see the difference.. it'll be thick liquid not like normal milk ...
