Mascarpone and Strawberry fake Flan



A super easy and delicious recipe all invented by me, your alternative to Jamie Oliver. Lol...



Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 x pkts strawberry Jelly (I used Castello brand 135grs each)
  • 1 x pkt of mascarpone (250grs)
  • 3 soup spoons of sugar
  • 1 X punnet of fresh ripe strawberries around 250grs




A very easy to prepare and even easier to eat dessert. Make the two jellies as indicated on the back of the packet. After the jelly dissolved and fully mixed with the water you must let these ones cool until almost cold. While that is happening, wash the strawberries and remove green bits and them chop them into fine slices, place them on a little pan with the sugar and boil them for around 1-2 minutes, set it aside and let it cool completely, (I even put in the fridge to get this done faster as I didn't want the jelly to start solidifying.

Them mix the strawberries with the jelly and whisk them, once well mixed add the mascarpone and whisk come more, until well mixed place in a jelly mould and refrigerate until well solid. To remove run warm water on the sides of the mould until the jelly comes away from the walls then flip it onto a dishing plate ...it tastes great with a little mint.

Yum! Is "jelly" what we call "Jello/gelatin" in the US? Mmmm ... strawberry & mascarpone.

Ricardo said...

Absolutely crankycheryl, it is called Jello over there, same thing really, and it was yummy indeed you know how strong fruit and cheeses mix, well same principle here but is all about softness, delicate soft flavoured strawberry and mild creamy mascarpone, was a delight. thanks for comment and visit :) xx

s. stockwell said...

Hi Rico, Thanks for the visit! We are intrigued by this recipe? Especially since we are so into pink these days. We will give it a try. Thanks, s (cool music)

Joan Nova said...

Very elegant and colorful looking dessert. I also like the crepes you posted today...and congrats for being named for the Foodie Blogroll's Finest today.

Tangled Noodle said...

Love this - a faux-flan! But with the mascarpone, I'm sure this is just as rich and silky as the 'real' thing. Delicious!

Brenda Campbell said...

Ricardo, Just one question: Is your strawberry jelly about the same as our Jell-o here in the states? That looks wonderful and I want to make that one too, I love molded desserts that are pretty and yummy to eat... Love strawberry anything.

Ricardo said...

Many thanks to my visitors and friends:

S.Stockwell, sorry I explain the pink, is lovers day I believe in Brazil and Portugal or just one of them, and I have been feeling romantic thus the pink delicious velvety dessert, the texture is of a flan/jelly, should try is delicious, as to my comment you're welcome. Thnks for your comment and visit here :) xx kisses xx

Thanks Joan, and the foodie blogroll caught me pleasantly off guard, loved it. Thanks for your comment and visit. :) kisses :) xx

Tangled, Yes is velvety and richly tasting, texture like a cross between a flan and a jelly (or jellow in the States), thanks for visit and comment. :) kisses xx

Yes Brenda, it is like your jell-o, and as it has fresh strawberries and mascarpone is very rich and light, you should really try. thanks for visit and comment :) kisses xx

ARUNA said...

Bren said...

Ricardo said...

Thanks a lot Bren, I am happy you liked it, as it was indeed quite nice, cheers for comment and visit. :) kisses xx

Thank you Aruna, this was made in commemoration of valentine's day in Brazil on the 13Jun, thus the colour and use of the romantic fruit strawberry, mascarpone for the smoothness and purity representation of eternal love. Yeah this one was though through, thank you cheers kisses :) xx

Christelle said...

Wooooow!! it looks very pro! :)))

Ricardo said...

It was very refreshing and tasty, thanks Christelle, kisses :) xxx

cinnamon said...

Wow, what a wonderful dessert!!!! Has to be delicious. May be I could try it with silken tofu instead of mascarpone (lactose intollerance unfortunately...)Thanks for shareing Ricardo!

Ricardo said...

Thank you so much cinnamon, and the suggestion is a very good idea indeed, but I have another idea, should try with Kefir, as I have learnt that this is ok for lactose intolerant people, but I never tried it. cheers !!! kisses xxx

Elle Lawliet said...

It looks really delicious, i wanna try to do it when i have the time, thank you for the recipe!

Rico said...

Thanks Elle, that one surprised even myself, was indeed delicious, and very strawberryish, and of course the appearance speaks for it self. Was meant to be a valentines dessert however is so good should be done all the time ...I hope you do get the time to try and make it as is very easy and quick. kisses xxxxx
