  1. Place jelly crystals in a jug. Pour over 1 cup of boiling water and stir until completely dissolved. Stir in 1 cup of cold water. Pour into a 9cmx19cm (base) loaf pan. Allow to cool then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until set. Cut the jelly into cubes.

  2. For the sponge, preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Grease and line a 20cm round cake pan with canola spray and baking paper. Beat the eggs and caster sugar together with an electric mixer on high speed for about 5-7 minutes, or until thick and creamy. Sift the flours together over the egg mixture and gently fold together until just combined. Spoon the mixture in the pan and bake for 20 minutes or until sponge springs back when lightly touched. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes then turn onto a wire rack to cool.

  3. To assemble, cut the sponge into 3cm pieces. Arrange half over an 8-cup capacity serving bowl. Drizzle with half the fruit juice. Top with half the jelly then half the custard. Scatter with half the mango, half the raspberries and half the blueberries. Repeat the layers. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours, if time permits. Spoon into bowls to serve.


If mangoes aren't in season, use frozen in tinned mango.If you don’t have time to make the sponge you can buy an un-iced, un-filled sponge cake from the supermarket or bakery.
