Vietnamese Jello Cake - Rau câu khuôn

Jello Cake - Rau câu khuôn

This jello cake used to be very popular in the 90s. Nowaways it has lost its popularity due to the Western dessert trends. This jello cake is made from agar agar, coconut milk and different flavorings. Agar-agar is made from seaweed and it is popularly used in Vietnamese cooking to make jelly instead of gelatin. It's a great alternative for vegetarians who do not want to use animal (usually pork) gelatin in desserts.
