Strawberry Jelly Pudding



It is the third Monday of the month and time for the Secret Recipe Club post! I didn’t participate in the August month challenge due to my vacation. When the challenge was emailed for this month in August, I had all the time to go through the blog assigned for me, “The Gluten-Free Smith“. Tina, a Portland based blogger who went gluten-free for health reasons, makes her blog speak for itself, with some delicious gluten-free eats and treats and how much she loves cooking for her grandchildren – I somehow agree to that statement, since umma loves cooking for the kids and they adore her food a lot, even making comparisons of my food to hers!  After going through almost the whole blog, I finalised on these brownies and these amazing looking waffles.


Once I was back from my vacation, I kept procrastinating on making one of them. I ticked off the brownies since I can’t have eggs at the moment and was really wanting to make the waffles, since I love them and the recipe sounded really interesting. I had already made mental notes to make it vegan plus bought a can of soda and stored it in my fridge. However, on the day of Eid, in between the havoc of cooking, HD pulled out the can and fixed himself some lime soda. So making the waffles didn’t happen. This Friday, I suddenly remembered I was yet to cook up for the assignment. That was when I rummaged through her blog again and decided to make this pudding, which Tina calls it “salad” by the way, for dessert after lunch. There are some amazingly sweet Australian strawberries in the market and my kids love anything with jelly, so it hit all the right chords.


I made half the recipe, in a 4 inch pan and adjusted quantities as per available products. I was so excited while putting the pan into the fridge after doing the layers but a little tap from my hand and my jelly layer wobbled literally disturbing the neat layers. 🙁 A mistake I feel was not whipping the cream till stiff. I whipped it only till soft peaks, since I didn’t want it to turn to butter, hehe…  I was so sad about it, but after waiting for it to set and then bringing it out to have after our heavy lunch, it was loved by HD and the kids alike! The almond base with the coconut oil gives a lovely flavor, and the creamy layer, strawberries and the jelly gave a lovely play of flavors. Overall, it was an amazing dessert. Mine doesn’t look as photogenic as Tina’s, but I can really vouch for the taste. You can try it with any fruit and jelly and combination, I am sure it would taste amazing anyway!

  16. I wasn’t quite sure what your recipe was when I first seen your title, but as soon as I seen the pictures and read the ingredients, I recognized It as strawberry salad, which is what it is called in my area. Whatever name it goes by though, it is delicious. I haven’t made this in a long time, I need to add it to my menu soon. Thanks for reminding me about a great dessert.
