Lemon and passionfruit custard slice


For the past FIVE agonizing months, I have been eating boiled vegetables for dinner to shed some muffins kilos.

OH!! It’s such a pain.

And what’s worse is that you starve yourself crazy and you only manage to lose a KILO, a bloody KILO!!! And even worse than that is that you make this slice and end up eating all the slices in a day and a half (breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, breakfast, lunch). And it gets more worse when you weigh yourself the next morning and find out you have gained a KILO. -_-

AHHH, this is it for me, I can no longer do this any more. I have to stop whinging, get things straight and find a solution.

Solution = I just have to get along with ma muffins!! :D

If you are willing to get along with your muffins too, then by all means have a go at this slice. You won’t regret it. Just don’t eat the whole lot. GAHH!! It’s not like you live forever. Might as well eat away while you’re here, life is too short to hold back right.

Oh I am so saving this delicious recipe! That last picture has me hooked. There really is not a lot of recipes out there with this unique blend of fruit flavors. However, based on your comments here I definitely will need to make this to bring to a crowd-it is just too much to have this at my house with my small family! Thanks for posting this. Keep these amazing posts coming!
