Caramelised Strawberry Coconut Cups

{this post was originally named Caramelised Strawberry Almond Cups - so sorry for the confusion!}


I have a delicious recipe to share with you today, main ingredient : Strawberries !  One of my all year long favorite fruits.

This is a great way to dress-up a plain packet of Instant Pudding.  I suppose one can use whatever fruit will work well {being caramelised} and add the same flavor Instant Pudding -- or not.  Lots of combinations are delicious together.

As I thought up this recipe {it actually started out as a recipe from a magazine which did not work out!}, it is the only flavor I have tried, but I definitely plan on experimenting with different flavors ... just think Caramelised Pineapple !

The Coconut Cups recipe is from the magazine, but that's where our short lived relationship ended - okay, and with the whole, expensive, I might add, filling down the drain :/  Oh, well, some works out others don't.

Anyway, this is what I had come up with to fill the Cups:

CARAMELISED STRAWBERRY COCONUT CUPS

8 - 10 servings

ALMOND CUPS:

2 1/2 cups Dessicated Coconut
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
3 Extra-Large Egg Whites

FILLING:

1 1/2 cups Strawberries, roughly chopped
1 TB Butter
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
1 packet Instant Pudding, Strawberry
Milk, as per the pudding box {but reduce it by about a fifth}
Fresh Strawberry slices, for garnish
Mint Leaves {optional}

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a muffin pan with cooking spray.
2.) Combine the Coconut, Caster Sugar and Egg Whites - mix well and use about 1 1/2 - 2 TB of the mixture per muffin hole - press it onto the bottom and sides of the muffin holes - bake for 10 - 15 minutes until the edges are golden brown - remove from the oven, leave to cool in the pan for a minute or two and then gently lift the Cups out to cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
3.) Melt the Butter over High heat in a saucepan - add the Strawberry pieces - stir-fry until slightly softer - add the Caster Sugar - turn the heat to medium and cook until the Strawberries are soft, but not mushy - set aside to cool completely.
4.) Combine the Instant Pudding with the Milk {remember to use a little less} - depending on the brand, place it in the refrigerator until half set {mine took about 3 minutes} - add the cooled Caramelised Strawberries to the Pudding and mix gently to combine.
5.) Scoop into the Coconut Cups - garnish with Fresh Strawberries and Mint leaves.


Place in the refrigerator for another 5 minutes and serve !

Hope you enjoy this dressed-up pudding recipe.

Till later,

With A Blast

  4. Sorry if this is a duplicate comment..my original disappeared. Soooo, my question was, why are they called almond cups if no almonds are used? And btw, it looks AMAZING and I will be trying this recipe soon. (Even without the almonds ;-) )

    Thanks!

    1. Kim, that was my mistake ! Would you believe, I only now realize I called it "Almond" Cups instead of "Coconut Cups" :-( Thanks for pointing that out ! I'll add a note to the post. {your e-mail is not attached to your comment, hence me replying here}
