Trifle Recipe

The Trifle Recipe

As I am sure the whole world knows by now - Nelson Mandela has passed away. After the passing of this hugely inspirational man, I decided to make a trifle in his honor. 

The ingredients you will need to make this easy dessert are as follows:

  • 2 Cans of Mixed Fruits
  • 1 Packet of Boudoir Biscuits
  • 2 Packets of your preferred jelly (I chose Raspberry)
  • Custard
  • 1 Bottle of Cream
  • 1 Chocolate Flake
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries

Start with placing the boudoir biscuits around the bowl and pouring the fruit in the center of them.
Boil the kettle and dissolve your jelly in a jug. Add in about 500ml cold water to your jelly mix (see back of jelly packet for instructions. But if you don't know how to make jelly...... I say nothing).

Once your jelly mixture is cool enough, pour into the bowl containing your biscuits and fruit. Set aside in the fridge to set.

Now that your jelly is set you can pour your custard on top. Then take a whisk or one of these fancy contraptions like I have and thicken up your cream. Make sure it is lovely and thick before spooning it on top of the custard.

To add to the presentation, grind your flake chocolate over the top of the cream. Halve some strawberries and decorate the top of your trifle however you like with the blueberries and strawberries!

Serve up and ENJOY! 

Trifle is without a doubt my favorite dessert. What is yours?
