I love making delicious and beautiful jelly fruit cakes. Jelly cake is lighter and healthier than a standard cream cake. It is a perfect dessert option for weight watcher. Jelly cake is also easy to make and fuss-free. It doesn’t take long to make and the end product is eye-catching and more than satisfying.

    Which Sago are you referring too. Amazon lists Sago Palm, and Sago Tapioca, as well as the Sago Palm plant. My guess is on Sago Tapioca, am I correct? Also, you use the solid coconut cream from Coconut milk (or Coco Lopez, the sweet stuff, used by bars. Can the milk remaining in the can be part of the milk? Topped off with full fat Coconut milk. Can I use Vitacoca for the water?

      Hi Mary, yes tapioca pearls sago is the one I'm using. Regarding to coconut cream, you can use the canned coconut cream/milk or simply unsweetened coconut milk. As we are adding sugar in this recipe, you don't really need sweetened coconut milk. You could use coconut water as substitution with water if you prefer although I never try it before. Let me know how you go :)
