English Recipe Corner – Party Dessert

Each week the real Mummy, AKA my Mum (who’s still in England with the rest of my fam) comes up with an authentic English recipe for us MDers to enjoy!
No English party would be complete without trifle and I can vividly remember it around at Kid’s events so enjoy!

TRIFLE

LADY FINGERS
1 PACKET JELLO
1 SMALL CAN FRUIT COCKTAIL/ORANGES/PEARS
1 CUP COLD CUSTARD
1 CARTON WHIPPING CREAM
SPRINKLES

  • Make up the jello ( I would use some of the juice from the fruit to make the jello so it adds to the flavour)
  • Place the fingers at the bottom of a fruit bowl and pour jello over so it sets with the sponge inside
  • Add fruit before it sets so that is in with the sponge and jell0
  • Leave in fridge to set completely
  • Make up custard and when it cools pour on top of jello
  • Again leave in fridge to cool and set
  • Whisk whipping cream till quite firm consistency and spread on top of custard
  • Add sprinkles to decorate
  • Keep cool in fridge till ready to serve
  • DONT FREEZE!
