By MeezoSoop



  • 1 handful flaked almonds (optional)

  • 5 tbsp whipped cream (to cover fruit)

  • 1 packet of trifle sponges

  • 3 seedless satsumas (or clementines or mandarins)

  • 1 tin custard (to cover fruit)

  • 1 bottle Cointreau (or other orange liqueur)

  • 230ml orange juice


  1. Line the base of a bowl with trifle sponges.
  2. In a glass, combine orange juice and Cointreau till it tastes right - ie not too alcoholic, but not too virtuous.
  3. Add enough of the liquid to the sponges to soak them (then drink the rest).
  4. Cover the sponges with a layer of satsuma, clementine and/or mandarin segments, carefully peeled to remove all traces of pith.
  5. Cover the fruit with custard and leave to cool.
  6. Cover the custard with plenty of whipped cream.
  7. Top with more fruit segments, and flaked almonds if you like them.

Handy Hint

Save yourself time and trouble by using instant custard
