Flummery Dessert

When I saw this post on Make It Perfect, I had a flashback to my childhood. My Mum used to make this dessert, although I don’t think she ever used a name for it.

I just had to make it, and decided it would be an easy dessert when some friends came over for dinner last Friday night (my dinner party menus are becoming a lot simpler these days!).

I used Aeroplane Strawberry jelly, and Carnation Creamy Evaporated Milk. I think my Mum used to use the Lite and Creamy milk for a lower calorie/fat version.

It was a light and fluffy, mousse like dessert, and took about 10 minutes to prepare (not including refrigeration time). I found it quite sweet, and think I’ll try it with only one packet of jelly crystals next time, although I’m not sure if it will set as well. It actually made enough for 4 martini glasses plus three medium-sized ramekins, so it was dessert for two nights. I definitely recommend giving it a go.

What desserts take you back to your childhood? What are your quick and easy, but fancy looking, desserts for dinner parties?
