This dessert is from a very old handwritten recipe book I have had forever. It personifies simplicity, nostalgia and effortless eating. Go retro and give it a try, you will be pleasantly surprised by what three ingredients can achieve!
380g tin of evaporated milk
2 X 80g packets of jelly powder
250ml boiling water
Place the tin of evaporated milk in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours.
Pour 250ml boiling water into a mixing bowl and dissolve the jelly powder in it. Set aside and allow it to cool to room temperature, but do not allow it to start setting.
Decant the cold evaporated milk into another mixing bowl and beat it with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
Scoop spoonfuls of the evaporated milk into the jelly mixture and fold it through with a metal spoon. Keep going until well incorporated.
Pour into serving bowls and place in the refrigerator for four hours, until set.
