Jelly Cake is gorgeous and easy to make with fresh summer flavors and a creamy condensed milk.
Bundt Jelly Cake
Jelly Bundt Cake is refreshing, puffy and simply delicious. For this cake, I went with summer flavors, such as peach and raspberry. I added some creamy and sweet layer of condensed milk jelly, which resulted in a delicious and perfect cake.
It was my first time trying to make condensed milk jelly, but fortunately it turned out fabulous. This Jelly Cake tastes a little like flan and creme brulle, except it has a different texture and so much easier to make. For a more festive look I used a bundt cake pan, and the cake turned out very sophisticated and fancy.
Look at those amazing layers of creamy goodness, its so nice to have the creamy condensed milk layer, it makes this concoction feel like a real cake, it ties together and balances the fruit flavors. By segregating the peach and raspberry layer, you truly get to experience their individual flavors and aromas.

Since this is a jelly cake, you most definitely need gelatin. If you want to substitute the gelatin, you can use agar agar, and it should be handled in the same way.

The cake can be stored wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature for about 3-4 days.
CAN YOU FREEZE Bundt Jelly Cake?
- Freezing is possible for up to 2 months. Since the jelly cake contains gelatin and some sugar it will not freeze completely solid.
- To thaw the jelly cake, overnight in the fridge and consume within 24 hours. You may also be able to serve the cake almost frozen, as an iced fruit jelly.
