Raspberry custard Kuchen (kuchen de frambuesas y crema de vainilla)

Kuchen is german for cake.  In the south of Chile we always make kuchen fruits . There are several  varieties of kuchen. This one has a base cake layer with a top layer of smooth creamy layer of custard and finally raspberry, (or strawberries, or blackberries or pears)
German cuisine arrived south of Chile about  1846 and 1914 when they inmigrated here and settled in the southern frontier zone.
We grow eaten kuchen especially in the south. This is one of my recipes I have in my  Recipes book.
