Used different ingredients. I used pre-sliced chocolate brioche loaf as well as the chocolate chips, so it worked out about 300g to make two layers. I also added vanilla essence to the custard - yummy! - 09 Feb 2011


A truly vile dish. The evaporated milk made it taste like chemicals. Do not use this recipe on others unless you have tested out. - 19 Mar 2012
