This delicious dessert is simple to make and does not take very long. It combines a mixture of flavours and textures and it is, of course, a three-layered dessert! Try it!


  • 1 punnet of strawberries
  • 125ml ready-to-serve custard
  • 150g plain, digestive biscuits (crushed)
  • 65g butter
  • 200ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 sachet of (preferably Greens) quick-setting jelly, strawberry flavour
  • 200ml warm water


  • STEP 1
    Bottom layer: Melt the butter on a pan. Add the biscuit crumbs and mix well. Put the biscuit base into the bottom of a dish (circumference: around 20cm) and spread it evenly with the bottom of a spoon.
  • STEP 2
    Middle layer: Wash the strawberries, get rid of the storks and cut them into slices. Remember to cut one of the strawberries into a fan-shape. Put all the strawberries (except the fan-shaped one) on top of the biscuit base and spread them out, layering them if possible. Into a clean saucepan, empty the sachet, add the sugar and 200 ml warm water. Boil on a high flame, mixing all the time. When it starts bubbling, take it off, but don't put it in the dish. Wait for a couple of minutes, until it's almost set. Then, pour it over the strawberries, covering each one. Put it in the fridge for about 5 minutes.
  • STEP 3
    Top layer: Take the dessert out of the fridge and pour the custard on. If you want to, you can cook it, but it's just as good cold. You could do the custard yourself, but it would take longer.
  • STEP 4
    Decoration: Whip the cream with a mixer until it has the texture you want. Put it into an icing bag and decorate on top of the custard. I do it in a flower shape. I put a dollop where 12 is on the clock, one on 3, one on 6, one on 9 and one in the middle. On the middle dollop, spread the strawberry like a flan. You can put your dessert into the fridge for 2 minutes, but that's up to you. Serve it and enjoy!
