For the cake, you will need:
Isnít it great? In 20 minutes or less, you can have your own home made Crema de Fruta! No sweat. By the way, you donít need to strictly follow this recipe. You may replace fruit cocktail with pineapple chunks, (and call it Crema de Pina) or ripe mangoes sliced into wedges (and call it Crema de Mangga). You can add peaches, kiwis, or any fruit of your choice! If youíre tight on budget, reduce cream, thus reducing the layers of the cake; or reduce condensed milk to lessen sweetness. It's all up to you.
Itís delicious. Itís mouth watering. The cake, with layers of grahams, milk and cream mixture plus pineapples and cherries on top is such a lovely sight, especially when placed in a transparent or glass dish. It will even be a great peace offering or gift to someone you want to please (like your boyfriend or girlfriendís mom). Itís also nutritious. It is a good source of fiber, Iron, Calcium, Vitamins A, C, and B12. Above all, itís a break from your fresh fruits for dessert. What are you waiting for? Make your own Crema de Fruta now.
