During some Holidays, I’m just too lazy to type something up. I just want to say that if you like cake with canned fruits on it and feeling a bit creative, why don’t you give this a shot?

This is my daughter Luisa ready to eat her slice of crema de fruta.

Enjoy your holiday everyone!










Home-made Crema De Fruta Recipe



1 ready to bake sponge cake (please follow instructions)

for the Custard Filling
1/2 cups white sugar
2 tablespoons flour
3 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
1/4 cup water

Gelatin glazed topping
unflavored gelatin (1 packet)
1 1/2 cups fruit cocktail syrup
1 cup water
6 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice



Custard Filling:.

Combine and stir constantly sugar, flour, yolks, milk, 1/4 cup water in a saucepan (waterbath when heated so it doesn’t get burnt) until it thickens and becomes creamy (about 10-15mins). Make sure there are no lumps.
Remove from heat and cool.
Gelatin glazed topping:
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan, heating and mixing for 5-10 mins until dissolved.  Remove from heat and cool.

To assemble

Cut the sponge cake into 2 layers.

Spread 1/2 of the custard filling on top of first layer making sure to even it out.

Arrange 1/2 canned fruits on top of custard.

Repeat layering, this time I used sliced peaches and I picked cherries from the canned fruit cocktail for toppings

Pour gelatin mixture on top of the final layer ; completely covering the fruits if possible.

Chill in the fridge until the gelatin is set.
