Light Jelly Cake

It was a recipe invented and improvised by me, that we still stick to the silhouette but it is difficult with all the occasions to celebrate the diet. The top is very healthy and nutritious, the layers of jelly with milk are very fragrant and light, I said it is a perfect cake.

In the fasting / vegetarian version you can use rice or soy milk and vegetable gelatin, I saw that it is now everywhere.


1 l
cow milk, or vegan milk
300 g
200 g
Medjool dates
100 g
Coconut flakes
150 g
Cacao powder
3 tbsp
Cane sugar
250 g
or normal sugar, or natural sweeteners make it as sweet as you like
Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp
Gelatine powder
30 g

Step 4

To make the cake you need a round pan with high embroidery, or a box, as I did - or it would be a perfect form of cake with the edges that come out.

Before assembling the cake, spread the cake tray well with a food foil, so that it covers the edges of the tray well. Put the above mixture in the tray, press lightly with your hands or spoon and spread evenly over the entire surface.

Step 7

When the milk starts to boil, turn off the heat, add the walnuts and mix well, leave for 5-10 minutes and then add the gelatin, I put 1 and a half envelope - 1 sachet is for 500ml of liquid. Mix for 5-10 minutes to dissolve the gelatin, if it is one that dissolves harder, it is better to soak it in a little water in time.

I sprinkled coconut on top and on the edges, I put a popcorn made of sugar paste taken from the supermarket (in my opinion it is not edible but it looks good on the cake, before you cut the cake you can take it out).
