How to Make Strawberry and Vanilla Pudding Cake

  1. Bring water to a boil, add a pinch of salt and then add the butter. Stir, and after it melts, add the flour. Whisk it with the butter, until it reaches a light-brown, golden color. Add the eggs and whisk them in as well. Leave it on heat for 1 more minute.
  2. Mix the sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl. Add half of this mix on the bottom of a small round cake tray, around 5 inches (12.5 cm). Evenly spread the dough over the sugar. Top it with 1 more teaspoon of the sugar mix. Refrigerate it for 2 hours.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Fry the dough for 2-3 minutes, until golden and crispy. Take it out, top it with the remaining sugar mix, and refrigerate it for 2 hours.
  4. In the meantime, you can make the vanilla pudding. Beat the pudding mix and milk with a whisk for 2 min. The pudding will be soft-set in 5 min. Makes 4 (1/2-cup) servings. Mix the gelatin with 1/4 cup (65 ml) water in a small bowl. Whisk the gelatin into the pudding.
  5. Place the crispy dough back in the cake tray, and pour half of the pudding over it. Top it with the strawberries, and the remaining pudding.
  6. Refrigerate it for 2 more hours before serving!
