Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Stir in vanilla and cool. Comments: Lots of work but oh so ono! Well, I finally tried the haupia cake recipe I submitted, and it turned out pretty well. I just wanted to add a few notes to it: The recipe is enough to make a single layer 9x13 cake. So to make layers, double the recipe or use smaller pans proportionately. Chill the haupia filling before spreading. I didnt and it kinda gooped all over. If you chill it you can make the filling much thicker (both in consistency and dimension). Chill the frosting before spreading too. If your lower layers arent flat, use a knife to cut it flat. The filling doesnt sit on a rounded cake well. File ftp://ftp.idiscover.co.uk/pub/food/mealmaster/recipes/mmkah001.zip

Delicious fluffy lemony frosting and a nice light cake with a very rich filling. You're right about it needing to chill and thicken before applying. After putting the cake together, keep it chilled, or the frosting and filling will start to run.

This cake was moist and SO ono! Made it for a funeral and I had lots of people coming up to me asking for the recipe. Yes a little work but the filling and gelatin mix for the topping/frosting can be done the day before.
