Strawberry Vanilla Jelly Pudding

Strawberry Vanilla Jelly Pudding

One of my first experiments in the dessert segment was this 'Strawberry Vanilla Jelly Pudding'. Happened when I was a teenager, my mom had gone to India and my brother had invited his friend and his wife over for iftar and she called me up to say that she would cook the main dinner for our day and I took control of the snacks, juices, etc.

I had already planned what to make for the snacks etc, but choosing a dessert was a huge decision as this was the first time I was hosting a party all on my own (with little help from my sister). So now you know how I would have been brainstorming ideas. Finally, I thought to myself that I would make something with the ingredients available at home.

There, I saw a pack of strawberry/ cherry jelly peeping at me from the pantry. I was overjoyed! I started contemplating on how to make this jelly interesting yet uncomplicated. (As I already had so much to do in a short span of time i.e., before Magrib azan, planned the iftar on the same day morning). To get better ideas I opened the fridge to find apples sitting in there. I thought to myself that cutting apples into small cubes and adding to the jelly would add dimension and a fruit crunch in between for the first layer of my pudding and there I began preparing. Once the iftar was over I was overwhelmed by the response I got for this easy peasy dessert. Since then I never stopped experimenting๐Ÿ™ˆ Alhamdulilah. <3

When I called mama to tell her what happened excitedly she was like had already tried this after she saw a recipe in 'Vanitha' - Women's Weekly magazine which similar to what I explained to her. But anyhow she was happy that it was something that I achieved on my own without referring any recipe. Maa Sha Allah ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ˆ

Now let's go and prepare just the right kind of dessert you need after a heavy party meal!


  • Bundt pan
  • 1 pack Strawberry/ Cherry flavor Jelly
  • 1 pack Caramel Custard Pudding Mix
  • 275 ml whole milk
  • 1 Apple, Chopped uniformly
  • 8-10 Strawberries, quartered
  • Water, as required, on the pack
  • Sugar, if required


  1. Chop your fruits, (apple and strawberries uniformly) and make the jelly according to the instructions at the backside of the jelly pack.

  1. Pour in the prepared jelly liquid into the bundt pan and drop in the fruits proportionately and place in the fridge to set.
  2. After about half an hour make your caramel custard according to the instructions on the pack and once the mixture is about to boil switch off the flame and let the mixture cool enough to pour over the jelly.
  3. Ps: Do not keep the caramel to cool for too long as it might start to set.
  4. Pour the cooled custard mixture slowly over the now set jelly and place in the fridge to set. At least for 3-4 hours.
  5. Once set place bundt pan in warm water for 5 minutes and slowly invert onto a serving plate by keep the plate upside down on the bundt pan and tilting the plate and pan together to invert and voila! Your pudding is ready to be relished!

  • NOTE
  • I like the Green's brand for the Caramel Custard. You may make your own caramel custard if you want. But this is an instant option. (very handy when you have guests coming over)
  • You may add extra sugar before the milk boils if you feel the sweetness of the custard isn't enough.
  • Only use the bundt pan if you are willing to take the risk. If so please do not forget this step, place your bundt pan in warm water for 5 minutes before you invert the pudding onto a serving plate.
  • You may do the same in a glass bowl for more transparency if you do not want to invert and take a risk๐Ÿ˜Š but the bundt pan version looks so beautiful ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
