This custard cake recipe comes from my grandma— it's nice to whip up when unexpected company stops in. It's a cool, creamy dessert that tastes like you fussed. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin


  • 1 prepared angel food cake (8 to 10 ounces)
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1-1/2 cups cold 2% milk
  • 1 cup sour cream
