This quick dessert can be topped with a little ice cream or some whipped cream if desired. Some flaked almonds, coconut, chocolate chips or flaked chocolate can be sprinkled on top and a strawberry would make it extra special. The vanilla custard can be replaced with banana or chocolate custard. Chocolate chip or other varieties of biscuits can be used instead of scotch finger biscuits. Drained chopped canned pears, apricots or peaches can be used instead of banana. There are many possible variations.
