Real English Trifle
1 pkg. white cake mix, made as directed
2 batches Birds Custard (make one double batch) OR sub. 2 pkg. cooked vanilla pudding
1 1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. powdered sugar (vanilla if not avail.)
2 pkg. fresh or frozen strawberries or similar
1/2 cup sherry
1/2 c. good raspberry jam
1 tsp. plain gelatin
1 peeled Kiwi, a few strawberries and pomegranate seeds for garnish
Prepare cake according to directions on package. Let cool completely.
Prepare custard or pudding mix according to package instructions. Let cool completely.
Mix fruit with sherry. If you don't want to use alcohol, use a little water or juice instead.
You want the fruit to be sitting, but not swimming, in a bit of sweetened juice.
Dissolve gelatin in a Tbsp. of boiling water and beat into the whipping cream
as you whip the cream.
Trifle is very forgiving, it takes no effort to make it looks great!
If you don't have a trifle bowl, like the one in the photo,use any large glass bowl.
It doesn't technically have to be glass, but it looks prettier if it is.
You can also make individual servings by placing the layers into large wine goblets.
Cut the cakes into large chunks and spread with jam. Cover the bottom of your
dish with a layer of cake. Top with a layer of prepared fruit, then a layer of custard.
Repeat the process until you are out of ingredients or the bowl is full.
Pipe or spoon whipped cream onto the top and garnish with fresh fruit.
Chill until serving time. Simply scoop out servings with a large spoon.
Can be made early in the day or the night before. Serves 15-20.
This served 10 for Christmas dinner dessert, some of the guys had seconds and half the trifle was still left over.
