Recipe: Wonky Fruit Jellies - Simple but Stunning!

Simple but Stunning dessert
Servings: 4 large jellies
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time1 min
Total Time15 mins


For the Jelly:

  • 350 ml water
  • 2 tbs agar agar flakes
  • 50 ml elderflower cordial - I used my homemade which is why the jelly is cloudy
  • Selection of berries – halved strawberries and blueberries

For the topping:

  • 150 ml double cream
  • 260 ml Devon Dream or other ready made custard


  • Pour the water into a small pan and sprinkle the agar flakes on top. Heat and allow to simmer before stirring. Simmer for a few minutes until the agar has dissolved.
  • Allow to cool and add cordial to give a strong flavour.
  • Pour into glasses add the fruit and set them at an angle to set (I balanced them in ramekin dishes).
  • Whip the cream until stiff and then gently whip in the Devon Dream. The custardy cream should be quite soft but still hold a little shape.
  • Set the jelly glasses upright and dollop in the custard and cream mix. Decorate with some more fruit and sprinkle with icing sugar.
  • Serve immediately.


The quantity of both the jelly and cream topping needed needs to be just under half the total volume of the serving glasses.
Allow the jelly to cool, but not start to set, before pouring into the glasses as the hot liquid could crack them.
Try using different cordials or liquids for the jelly.
