I love this pudding, it brings back lot of childhood memories. My mom makes this pudding for all our birthdays and we look forward to this every year and never gets fed up of it.
Now I am so happy that I am teaching this favourite pudding of mine :-)
So let's go ahead with the pudding.
Angel Food Cake (Recipe is given below)
Vanilla Custard (you many require 2 cups of custard)
2 and-half cup cream
2 tablespoons dark rum
3 tablespoons white sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup brandy
1/4 cup dry sherry
20 large strawberries
2 tablespoons strawberry preserves
Cook custard mix in low heat for 10 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil . Stir well and turn off the heat and allow to cool slightly.
Mix in rum and chill the custard.
Whip 1 1/4 cups cream and 1 tablespoon sugar until stiff. Fold into chilled Custard mixture.
Using a brush, coat a deep, 10" diameter bowl, with strawberry preserves up to within 1 inch of top.
Slice the Angel cake cakes horizontally into halves. Place top slice, crust side up in bottom of preserves-coated bowl, curving outer edge of layer upward.
Combine brandy and sherry, and sprinkle 2 tablespoons over the cake slice.
Spread 1/3 of the chilled pudding mixture over the surface of the cake slice. Repeat the process on each layer.
Top it with arranging 15 to 18 strawberries on the top of the third layer of pudding and cover with fourth cake layer, crust side down. Sprinkle with remaining brandy-sherry mixture
Whip the remaining 1 cup cream and 2 tablespoons sugar until stiff. Make mounds of whipped cream around the edge of the bowl with the piping bag. Top each mound with a strawberry.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
