This is a delicious variation on a theme with the use of orange juice and milo topped with blue-berries




Ingredients: (Milo layer)
  • 8 grams of agar-agar powder or strands
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 / 3 cup sugar
  • 3 /4 cup of Milo

Ingredients: (Milk layer)
  • 10 grams of agar-agar powder or strands
  • 1  3/4 cup water
  • 1 cup evaporated milk (eg Ideal or Carnation)
  • 1 /3 cup sugar
  • Few drops vanilla essence

Method:
For Milo Layer:
Combine all Milo layer ingredients.
Stir well and cook on medium heat, stir until boiling and agar is dissolved completely.
Turn off heat and pour in the appropriate container.
Fill the mould(s) to approximately half. Allow to gel.


For Milk Layer:
  1. Combine all Milk layer ingredients, stir well with a whisk until sugar dissolves and the mixture boils. Turn off heat.
  2. Quickly, slightly scratch the  Milo surface gel set in the mould(s) with a fork, and immediately (Do not delay at this point) pour the hot milk layer agar directly onto the Milo layer.  (This should allow some fusion between the two layers and prevent the layers from separating when served)
  3. Allow to cool somewhat and then place the moulds in refrigerator to harden and cool.
  4. Remove from the moulds. Serve cold as a dessert.
TIP: If the gel is difficult to remove from the mould directing a forced stream of water by syringe at the edge should split the hold and force the agar to release. Unlike gelatin, hot water immersion of the mould is not likely to be successful. This is because agar changes from a gel to a liquid at a fairly high temperature.

Notes:
Preparing a pandan leaf extract in water and then subsequently using this in stead of the water, produces a fragrant and greenish tinged product.
