I am making a trifle for a buffet on Thursday, along with a ton of other food, all whilst trying to convince a grubby fingered 3 year old that I really don't need his help - so I'm looking to save time and energy wherever possible.
Can anyone recommend a nice very thick readymade custard that I can use?
Googling has already informed me that the fact I want to use jelly in said trifle puts me firmly at the common end of the social spectrum, so I am certainly not going to start fussing over whether it is tinned, cartoned or chilled. I just want it to be thick and tasty!
M&S extra thick one (cannot remember if that is its exact name but I am sure it's "extra" something on the tub). They do a normal ready-made custard but it's really not as good, much thinner and sweeter. The extra expensive thick one is marvellous.
