Lambada Delights

, , , , , , ,

This Lambada delights has a taste of childhood for me. We had this at almost every family reunion, everyone loves it, and it’s also pretty quick to prepare. My kids also associate this cake with the big family reunions in Austria. 🙂

Where the name Lambada comes from or why it is called Lambada? I unfortunately do not know. But I know that the taste is simply excellent. Not too sweet, light and fluffy, somewhat fruity and just irresistible.

This is basically a sponge cake base with orange custard, whipped cream and soaked ladyfingers on top.

These Lambada delights tastes in summer as well as in winter or just anytime.
