    Default Trifle? how do you make yours?

    I've just tried to upload a photo of my trifle so I hope it works...

    - small jam rollettes on bottom first, drizzled with port, sherry or apple juice
    - big square chunks of red jelly put down on top of jam rollettes (make the jelly in a flat tray separately & cut into chunks once set)
    - thick custard on top of jelly
    - whipped cream on top of custard
    - top with fresh fruit & sprig of mint to garnish

    Yum!

Layer it all then whipped (hand whipped) cream on top. Leave it overnight and everything is all soaked through. Delicious!
    This plus I splash the sponge with port or sweet sherry once it's in the bowl.

    I do a slightly different version - kind of like a tiramisu but with berries.

    I soak Italian sponge finger biscuits in brandy and apple juice and put in bottom of glass bowl. Then I mix marscapone, whipped cream, apple juice, brandy and vanilla essence together and layer on top. Then custard/creme patisserie, then loads of fresh berries and cherries.

    I do it for Christmas and it varies every year. Some years I'll add jelly.

    Default Re: Trifle? how do you make yours?

    I have slices of the jam rolled sponge cakes (whatever they're called) on the bottom with plenty of sweet sherry over them. Almost drowned actually

    Then a tin of drained fruit salad, then custard (brandy custard when its out at Christmas) then whipped cream to top it off. I put cherries or kiwi fruit on the top.

    Mmmm I think I need to make one...

    I'm really the only one that likes trifle in my family. DF will eat it as long as there's no fruit in it.

    I like the sound of the black forrest one though!!
