Broken glass is a simple but interesting cake


It is worth at least once to make a cake "Broken Glass", and the recipe will certainly take its rightful place in the most favorite moneybox. It is not without reason that hundreds of housewives prefer to cook this particular cake, because it has several advantages at once.

It is really delicious. Prepared from jelly, the cake has a delicate and very unusual taste.

He does not need to bake. Many women will certainly agree that during the pre-holiday commotion a recipe for a cake without baking will be a real gift. "Broken glass" does not require long preparations and it always turns out to be excellent.

The basic recipe can be changed and supplemented in every way, the result will be exactly the dessert that the whole family will love, and the children will be completely delighted.


According to the classic recipe, this cake includes:

  • ready-made jelly - 3 bags are enough,
  • sour cream is not very fat - 500 g,
  • sugar - about 200 g,
  • gelatin without additives - 20 g.

Jelly is best to choose with a different taste and color. The brighter it is, the more beautiful and appetizing the finished dish will look. The best option is green, red and yellow.

Advice from the hostesses. To prepare a festive meal, it is best to buy the products of those manufacturers who are already familiar. Jelly here is the main ingredient, so a poor quality product can spoil the whole result.

Preparation of colored "glass"

Despite the fact that the preparation of this dish does not require a lot of time and effort, it is worth starting to do it early, better the day before the intended celebration. Why? The fact is that the jelly should keep its shape well, so it must be properly cooled in the refrigerator.

First of all prepare color jelly. In order not to be mistaken with the technology, it is worth exploring the packaging of the product - each manufacturer gives special recommendations about the preparation. Most often, to make jelly, it is poured into a container, poured a certain amount of water (about 0.5 liters per pack), thoroughly stirred and brought to a boil. In this case, the liquid must be constantly stirring. To make the jelly strong enough, the amount of water should be reduced by 30% from what the manufacturer recommends.

As soon as the jelly boils, it is removed from the stove (unless there are special instructions on the package). The resulting liquid is cooled at room temperature, and then cleaned in the cold for 3-4 hours. As a result, you should get 3 containers with a multi-colored jelly of dense consistency.

Cooking Basics

Classic jelly cake "Broken glass" is prepared on the basis of sour cream. Regular gelatin without additives pour boiled hot water. 20 g of gelatin take about 50-70 ml of water. In this form, the container is left for 5-15 minutes, during which time the gelatin has time to swell. It is possible to speed up the process of putting the bowl in a water bath.

At this time, you can do the preparation of sour cream. To do this, 0.5 liters of sour cream mixed with sugar. If desired, add a little vanilla to this mixture. The cream is whipped with a mixer or whisk until the grains of sugar are completely dissolved. Now the prepared mass is poured into gelatin and thoroughly mixed.

As a variety of this dessert can be called a variant based on yogurt and cottage cheese. The recipe for the “Broken Glass” cake in this case allows you to get a dessert with a delicate creamy taste. For its preparation instead of sour cream use a mixture of yogurt and cottage cheese. Cottage cheese carefully frayed to avoid lumps. The rest of the work is the same.

Pouring cake

To properly prepare the Broken Glass jelly cake, you will need a suitable glass shape (preferably a round shape). Many advise to line the bottom and sides of the tank with cling film. Presumably, this will make it faster and easier to remove the frozen jelly. However, it is worth considering: to lay out the film ideally exactly almost impossible, and therefore on the finished cake "Broken Glass" will remain creases, pits and other irregularities, which significantly spoils the appearance of the dessert.

The finished colored jelly is removed from the containers and cut into small pieces, about 1 cm in size. It is not necessary to adhere to any particular form - you can cut it arbitrarily.

At the bottom of a large container, chopped colored jelly is placed, poured with sour cream filling on top and check if there are any air voids left (especially near the walls of the bowl). The surface is made smooth and cleaned in the cold until it solidifies.

How to extract the cake "Broken Glass"

To make the cake not only tasty, but also look presentable, it must be carefully removed from the container. Those who have lined the bottom of the mold with cling film need to turn the mold over and put the extracted jelly on a flat dish. Film carefully separated.

However, there is another option. It saves time, strength and nerves of the cook. When pouring jelly film is not needed at all. Before pulling out the dessert, the container should be placed in hot water for a few seconds. In this case, the cake will separate from the walls of the dishes without any problems at all. It is enough to turn the form onto a flat dish with a quick movement.

Biscuit Cake

I must say that such a dessert, consisting of one jelly, not everyone will like, because it does not have that component, which many used to see in the cake - this is the cake.

However, there is a solution. Everyone who wants to cope with this task pretty quickly and will make quite a traditional cake "Broken Glass" with biscuit. You can save time and buy ready-made cakes, and you can make them yourself.

This will require:

  • eggs - 5 pcs.,
  • sugar - 200 g,
  • flour - 160 g

In a clean dry container, eggs are beaten for a long time with a mixer until their volume doubles. At this time, add a little sugar. Egg-sugar foam should be sufficiently dense in texture and not have sugar grains. At the end add flour and gently mix with a spoon so that the foam does not fall off.

The dough is poured into a baking paper form and immediately sent to the oven (it should be already heated to 180 degrees). After about 20-30 minutes, you can remove the biscuit. The degree of readiness is checked with a wooden toothpick.

After cooling, the cake is divided into 2 or 3 parts. Two of them are finely chopped and mixed together with colored jelly. All this is poured sour cream. The third part of the biscuit is placed on top and well pressed. After turning the cake will be the bottom. By the same principle, you can make a cake "Broken Glass" with cookies.

What else can you add to dessert

In fact, there are a lot of options for making this sweet, because it can be combined with almost all fruits and berries. Bananas, oranges, apples, peaches, pears, strawberries - these are just a few options for supplements.

On top of this delicacy can be decorated with whipped cream. Homemade cake "Broken Glass" will be tasty, very useful and low-calorie.

So is it worth making this dessert? By all means. Any mistress can cope with it, even that which many masterpieces of culinary art do not yet give in to. At the same time, a bright jelly delicacy can truly decorate a festive table.

Budget and not banal

In fact, this cake is a jelly, which consists of several parts - the main, usually white, and colored multi-colored pieces, which create the effect of glass. This easy-to-prepare delicacy is ideal for summer celebrations. Cool, natural and tasty, it is also suitable for the menu of children's parties.

In addition, a similar recipe will be a real lifesaver for those who do not have an oven, or the quality of baking in it leaves much to be desired.

So let's learn how to cook the classic version. From the products will be needed:

  • jelly with various additives - 3 pack.,
  • sour cream - 400 g,
  • gelatin - 20 g,
  • sugar - 200 g,
  • fruits.

The contents of the bags of sweet jellied pour in separate containers, pour boiling water, mix thoroughly and leave to cool, then send to the refrigerator. This should be done in advance so that the mass has time to freeze by the time the dessert is prepared.

Gelatin dissolve in water and allow to swell. At this time, sour cream mixed with sugar. To speed up the process, you can do it on low heat, but do not heat it up much.

Cut the finished multi-colored jelly and fruit into small pieces, put in a bowl or form. Add gelatin to sour cream, stir and pour into the mold. Mix gently so that the pieces of “glass” and fruit are evenly distributed inside. Refrigerate for several hours.

To make the sweet dish easier to remove from the mold over time, you can put it in 30-40 seconds in a bowl of hot water.

With sponge cake

For the basics will be needed:

  • flour - 200 g,
  • sugar - 200 g,
  • eggs - 3 pcs.

At first, eggs with sugar are whipped until foam appears. After they are gradually added flour. Biscuit is baked from the resulting dough (20-30 minutes at a temperature of 180 degrees), which should be allowed to cool.

Jelly to cook, as in the previous recipe, after which you can start the "assembly" of the cake. To do this, break the biscuit into small pieces, and crushing, put in the form. Spread out colored “glasses” and fruits from above, then repeat the layers again. Add sour cream to the ingredients and send to the fridge.

With a cookie

Easy dessert can be made with such a foundation. First, as in the previous versions, it is necessary to make a multi-colored aspic. After that, break the biscuit into small pieces, put it on the bottom of the container and place the pieces of colored “glass” on top, and then pour the sour cream over it. Wait for freezing and serve.

With cottage cheese

Of course, this is a more satisfying and high-calorie version of “broken glass”, but no less tasty. This dessert is an excellent alternative to the usual cottage cheese with sour cream or casserole, which children refuse. They definitely won't miss the tasting of such a bright delicacy. Here's what you need from the products:

  • biscuit cookies - 200-300 g,
  • color jelly - 3 pack.,
  • cottage cheese - 300 g,
  • sour cream - 400 g,
  • sugar - 1.5 st,
  • gelatin - 20 g

Biscuits break into pieces and put a thick layer on the bottom of the form. To biscuit did not lag behind the main mass, you need to beat it with a fork, there the base will be better soaked. Color jelly made in advance is cut and laid out on the base. Pour all the creamy mass, prepared from grated curd, mixed with sour cream and sugar, with the addition of gelatin. Refrigerate for several hours.

Those who watch their figure can use low-fat yogurt as a basis, then the sweet treat will be even less calorie. And if time is sorely lacking, you can simplify the recipe and use marmalade sliced ​​into thin slices for colored “glass”.

As you can see, you do not need to be a great craftsman to create a small culinary masterpiece. Broken glass cake is a great treat for children and adults, as well as a great alternative to regular cakes.
