The recipe I am about to share today is the most-wanted of all. By now, you all must have an idea that I am always after new and innovative dessert ideas to satisfy HI’s sweet tooth (such a good wife I am… lol) and this dessert was among the very first ones with which I attempted to do so. Yeah, I experimented this years ago (3 to be precise… haha) when Eaman (one of my BFFs) shared this recipe with me while we were discussing different dessert options for Eid on whatsapp – long distance relationship! (that was lame I know, ok sorry :p). I remember it was our first Eid away from home and I had to make something special apart from the usual Sheer Khurma you know.
I instantly resolved to prepare this because:
- It seemed too simple, easy and quick
- It was something unusual – 3 years ago, it definitely was!
- Eaman was very positive about it
And since then I have made this gazillion times. This has been my go-to dessert for every party/ dawat. There are lots of similar recipes on the internet but this one has my heart now since this was the very first unwonted dessert I had made. Firsts are always special, right? 😀
Let’s get down to business without anymore delays.
About Souffle: It is usually a baked egg-based dish which was first tried by French people in early eighteenth century. However, the one I am about to share today has nothing to do with the baking part – just a fancy name given to easy-peasy sweet dish 🙂

Above ratings are out of 5, with 5 being the ‘most’.
Food processor/ Cream Whipping tool/ Mixing Tool
Sweetened Condensed Milk 1 tin (about 390 ml)
Whipping Cream 400 ml
Cream Cheese 250 gms
Pineapple Jelly 2 packets
Prepare one packet of jelly using only one cup of water (usually the jelly is made in 2 cups) and keep it in refrigerator to set.
In food processor, whip cream until peaks are formed.
Add in condensed milk and fold in.
Introduce cream cheese into the mixture and blend.
Fuse in the already set jelly.
Stir in the powder from other jelly packet.
Lastly, incorporate the pineapple chunks into the mixture and fold them in.
Pour the mixture in serving bowl and place the dish in refrigerator.
MY TWO CENTS:
You can use ready made whipped cream but I prefer whipping it myself (in food processor).
I crushed some strawberries and mixed them with whipped cream to achieve the look in the pictures (in case you are wondering what is that).
You can blend the mixture in a food processor/blender for all steps except for the last one. Do not blend after mixing the pineapple chunks.
This dessert is on the heavier side so avoid preparing it in combination with heavy meals but it always tastes good.
Setting times (jelly and final mixture) are not considered while estimating the above times.
Hope you’ll enjoy trying it out.
