Broken Glass Jello Bundt - I Like Big Bundts 2011
 Broken Glass Jello Bundt
I Like Big Bundts - Day #24

It's the last Wednesday of the Bundt adventure! Welcome to Day #24 of I Like Big Bundts...only 6 more days until National Bundt Day on November 15th.

Today, I bring you the Broken Glass Jello Bundt. Um, this is the easiest bundt I've ever made and I had people in the library jumping up and down. This is a winner!

Let me stress this again. Broken Glass Jello is the easiest thing to make…and it gets the biggest “wows”! Everyone thought it took a long time to make…but it really only takes MINUTES. Some recipes require a ton of elements (cake, filling, frosting, etc) but this? Forgetaboutit. It just takes a day to plan it out.

I made the same Broken Glass Jello recipe except I added an extra package of Knox to the “milk” mixture. I knew this bundt would stand taller than my normal 9 x 13 pan of broken glass jello so the extra gelatin gave it a little more firmness.

I made the 4 colors in the morning (about 10 minutes of work to dissolve packaged Jello in water) and popped it into the refrigerator. When I got home from work, I dissolved the unflavored gelatin in cold water, added boiling water to dissolve and then poured in a can of condensed milk. Yes, my kitchen tools were a bowl, spoon and can opener. Easy Peasy. While I was cooking dinner, I let the mixture cool off (don’t pour hot milk mixture on the colored jello or you’ll get a crazy hot melted mixture). Then I cut the colored jello into blocks – uneven blocks are totally fine! Grease the Bundt pan with a little canola oil then wipe out most of it…just want to give it a little lubricant to get out of the pan later. The blocks go into the bowl in a colorful manner…it’s like playing with stained glass jello pieces! The milk mixture follows and you are done. If I were making the 9 x 13 broken glass jello, I would carefully remove the bubbles on top for a nicer finish…however, the beauty of the bundt is that it gets inverted! Whoo hoo. Just cover with some plastic wrap, put it in the refrig and watch your DVR while things firm up in the fridge overnight! J

Remember, you can change up the Jello colors to fit the seasons, party or game. I've made Christmas Jello and Lakers Jello... next up blue and gold UCLA Bruin Jello! :)

See you tomorrow for another Bundt! - mary the food librarian

This is so fun and cheerful. It's totally gloomy, cold, rainy and miserable where I am today. I'd happily accept a plate of this with a smile and I don't even particularly like jello.

My Hawaiian grandma makes this jello and it's always a big hit. I love that you made it a bundt jello. It's so pretty in bundt form.

I just had to make myself Knox Blox the other day - for no reason at all except I wanted 'em! I'm not sure where the craving came from, but I think I'm gonna have to make this bundt now. It looks so impressive. I love it! I wonder what my Thanksgiving guests will think about it.

This is so pretty! It looks like stained glass, to me. I have to confess, every time I read "I like big bundts" on someone's blog, I giggle a little...

Awesome and it was really easy to make. My only question is how to get it out of the bundt pan. I know it is silly but I am a little scared to try and invert and the jello sticking to the sides. Any suggestions???

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

@Anonymous To Anonymous (Re: Depanning): I prepped the bundt with a tiny bit of canola oil (and wiped out 99% of it). Then to invert, I ran some hot water on the outside of the pan. You can also heat a towel up (with hot running water) and lay that against the side of the pan. Don't let it go to long...or you'll start to melt it. You do hold your breath! :) - mary

You are a genius! Nice to have something happy to see in my morning browsing/newspaper reading. A FB friend posted a twitter link to your blog and I am a lot happier reading it right now than my husband who is reading the news! But this broken glass bundt is just lovely. Thank you for a little beauty, a little happiness to begin the day. I am not a jello fan but this recipe could be a game changer. Keep up the great job with your blog. It is really terrific.

Thank you for this! It's Christmas Eve afternoon. I've already made the jello flavors but was unsure if using a bunt pan for this recipe would work. I'm so glad I found this. By the way, today is my dad's birthday and I was wanting to make this especially for him. He turns 80 today!
