Having spent Christmas ill on the sofa i am planning to redeem myself tomorrow with a spectacular trifle! Ideas please..do i make my own custard from scratch? I will accept jelly and no jelly versions...which fruit..any booze..swiss roll..sponge..madeira..sprinkles! Please enhance my life with your ideas!
Sponge cake Douse with port. Layer with raspberries More port Custard (I use the 'posh' ready made stuff from the fridge aisle) Whipped cream Make a syrup from port and sugar. Cool. Drizzle over the cream. Top with toasted flaked almonds.
I do the same as Remus......but I slice trifle sponges & spread rasp jam on them, chuck raspberries & a shake of icing sugar to sweeten. Douse with raspberry liqueur, cover with ready made custard, then the whipped cream & flaked almonds & sometimes I chuck pomegranite on the top as well.
Home made sponge cake-slightly stale is best. Slice and sprinkle with sherry. Use liquid from 3 cans of raspberries and mix with gelatine, then add to fruit again, adding chopped walnuts. Goes on top of sponge. Cooled home made custard. Whipped cream Toasted almonds
