I have never made one before and want to make one this weekend as I love trifle but I don't know where to start. Does anyone have a recipe for one of the lovely old fashioned raspberry fruity trifles that I remember as a child, I think I need sponge, fruit, jelly, custard and cream but haven't got a clue what to do and how to put them together. Thank you!!
Put fruit and sponge in bowl, make up jelly and pour over fruit and sponge. Put in fridge, when its completely set pour custard over top and let that cool and set, probably over night then layer whipped cream on top. Sprinkle top with hundreds and thousands/grated choc.... Bring to my house for me to demolish Hth
Oh yes! Use either trifle sponge (fingers) or Madeira cake to line the dish. Make up jelly, topping up with the juice from the tinned fruit of choice. Add fruit on top of sponge and pour on jelly. It may make the sponge float to the top- it doesn't matter. When set in the fridge, add custard. To avoid a skin forming, cover with clingfilm so that it is actually touching the surface of the custard. When that's set, remove the clingfilm and add whipped cream (double or whipping) and some hundreds and thousands. For real 70's authenticity you need Dream Topping but I haven't seen it for years!
I do a grown up version using orange jelly, mandarin pieces and a minature of Cointreau soaked into the sponge. I skip the custard and crumble a Flake on top of the cream. This is making me hungry
