Mairy Poppins


So here we are with the famous Mairy Poppins dessert! It’s famous because it’s insanely delicious and because it’s something I came up with years ago.

It consists of three layers

Tsoureki (Dived in syrup)

Pastry cream and

Whipped cream

On top I glaze with cherry or strawberry jam and in between I sprinkle grated hazelnuts.

Trust me when I say it’s one of the best desserts ever. Maybe you will find yourself making tsourekia just to make this dessert!


It’s very easy to make. Don’t be tempted to buy pastry cream (powder). It’s not science. It’s very easy to make pastry cream and it tastes so much better. It’s literally done in no time!

Also if you make your own jam to glaze your dessert it will give extra sparks!! Just make sure it’s either strawberry or cherry, it’s the winning match!

Now why Mairy Poppins? There is a very simple answer to that..


Years ago Facebook started to be the new trend. I didn’t want to be a part of it and generally I kept my distance from the social media frenzy until now.

My sister always prompt me to open a Facebook account and I was refused to do so. Whenever she was on Facebook I could hear this annoying music and random words like delicious, sugar crush, sweet and things like that. I started making fun of this voice and we were laughing about it. One day I actually watched her playing that game with the annoying music. Of course she was playing candy crush. Whenever a game is on I am in. I like all kind of games. So it got me curious.


After a few days I got sick and I was bored at home. So I created a Facebook account to play candy crash. The username? Mairy Poppins! As simple as that. From that day and on it became something like a nickname.. At that time I created the dessert and my brother in law asked me how I call it. My sister spontaneously said Mairy Poppins of course. We all laughed. Actually until this very day that’s how we call it so I guess my dessert has a brand name! Lol!

I hope you have some tsoureki leftovers at home, if you do just try Mairy Poppins! You will love it! Filia!
