Summer trifle

A trifle is a classic dessert that goes back to the 16th century in England. It's all about layers of sponge cake, fruit, custard and whipped cream. If you're pushed for time just get ready-made custard and sponge cake and just layer all the ingredients either in a large bowl or as individual ones in glasses.


Madeira sponge cake
Whipping cream
Raspberries and strawberries
Toasted almond flakes

Layer the sponge and sprinkle with amaretto. Wash and cut the fruit, fill in the glasses and pour the custard on top. Whip the cream and spoon in the glasses. Toast the almond and sprinkle over the cream.
