Am i too late to cut in with Nigellas Boozy trifle. I've made two this week for dinner parties. Custard is easy and divine. Everyone asking for the recipe now!

This! It has jelly but it’s made with the fruit juice.

Although your retro recipe will be good too.

So, it’s cake/biscuit, soaked in sherry, fruit, custard, cream (toppings)? No jelly 🤦🏼‍♀️

I'm another one to say no jelly. Make a Swiss jam roll ( or buy a good make one - M&S ) Crumble a few Amaretti biscuits in a glass trifle dish, cut up Swiss roll and put in dish. Pour in sherry and leave for awhile to soak in. Add fruit ( raspberries in my house ) Make custard, cool slightly. Put on trifle. When cold put on cream. Decorate with more raspberries and toasted nuts or anything which takes your fancy.

Buy some kind of chocolate cake - a marble one is good. Slice it and line a trifle dish with it. Drizzle over whatever alcohol you like - Tia Maria works well, sometimes I might use Baileys.

Get two cartons of ready made custard and to one of them add a whole load of melted chocolate (milk or dark, whatever your preference)

Pour the vanilla one on the cake first, and then the chocolate one.

Top with a layer of lightly whipped double cream.

On the top, sprinkle some crushed Cadbury's Flake. Or two.

Sorry definately no jelly in a traditional trifle - you can put the rest in though 😂
