English Trifle Recipe - who's got an easy one please !

I would love to bring an English trifle over to someone's house tomorrow and even though there are plenty of recipes on the internet,
I was wondering whether someone here has made a simple easy but delicious one with products available here and wouldn't mind posting the recipe please.
That would be fantastic, thank you

Re: English Trifle Recipe - who's got an easy one please !

I love trifle, as do my kids

I have 2 recipes.. the one you want is the easy, kid-could-make, one as it takes less time as you need it for tomorrow

1 - 2 packets of Strawberry jelly dissolve in hot water (buy in Globus or Jemoli)
arrange some plain jam swiss roll or lady fingers or home-made sponge at the bottom of a large bowel (you can add fruit too if you wish)

Sprinkle a few table spoons of good sherry and let soak into the sponge then add the jelly liquid to the sponge - pour over the back of a spoon so not to make the sponge mush. Allow to set in the fridge

Make up some Birds custard powder, milk and sugar, allow to cool - then put on top of the jelly

Whip up a lot of cream, put on top of the custard and decorate with a crumbled flake or grated chocolate.

You could make a fresh trifle with real fruit, fruit juices and home-made real custard, decorated with roasted flake almonds - yummie but takes a bit longer to make.

Re: English Trifle Recipe - who's got an easy one please !

It's lovely, you can't go wrong with the easy version. I hope it's a big hit at your dinner party tomorrow..

tip: add a level tablespoon more than the recommended custard powder for a thicker set custard

I think I'll make some too

Btw, the Vanillecreme which Migros sells is practically custard. Works a treat in a trifle.

OMG does this mean you can actually find custard powder in Switzerland? I've been here 8 years and have never thought to look, just presumed it wasn't available.

Ok so where do I look?

Hi Nats
you can buy Bird's custard powder in Globus and I'm guessing Jemoli sell it too - but for sure in Globus

Birds custard is powdered custard which you make up with milk and sugar. Birds is the name of the brand but in the UK you can get other brands and supermarkets usually sell their own.

Oh, and you can even buy ready made custard in litre tetra packs which is a very naughty treat if you eat one all by yourself (or is that just me?).

Custard's nearest relative is "creme anglais".

If you're not bothered to make your own with Maisstaerke, eggs, milk and sugar:
A reasonably priced one is found in a box-of-three-packets in Aldi. It comes in vanilla or chocolate flavour. You just add milk and boil/simmer.

Re: English Trifle Recipe - who's got an easy one please !

I will try a trifle this summer, I promise, honest, especially with the added infos here !!!

But I opted for a classic Tiramisu instead, which is prepared real fast and always, always, always is a big success !!! Yum

Re: English Trifle Recipe - who's got an easy one please !

No eggs. just a big quantity of these 2 products mixed with some normal cream added.
Into the very strong coffee I put a huge drop of orange liqueur, doesn't have to be necessarily GrandMarnier though. The rest is just like the one Nathu posted.

mmmhh, I'd eat some right now !!!

What do you call a man with jelly and sponge in one ear and custard in the other?

A trifle deaf...

I bet the joke is very funny for those who get it
I wonder whether there is a website which explains English jokes or jokes in general !!!
