Real Trifle Recipe

Ingredients :

575 ml milk

4 Grade 3 eggs

2 Grade 3 egg yolks

50 g caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 tbsp cornflour

175 g sponge cake, cut into cubes

8 tbsp sweet sherry

4 rounded tbsp raspberry jam

50 g flaked almonds, lightly toasted

275 ml double cream

2 tbsp caster sugar

50 g glace cherries, sliced

Method :

Beat first 6 ingredients well together. Pour into a heavy based pan. Cook, whisking gently all the time, until sauce, just, but only just, comes up to the boil and thickens. At once pour into a bowl and whisk until lukewarm. To prevent custard overcooking, heat until thick in a double pan or in basin over a pan of boiling water, whisking occasionally. The choice of method depends on your confidence !

Mix lukewarm custard with cake, sherry, jam and half the almonds. Press smoothly into a glass serving dish. Cover. Refrigerate until well chilled. Before serving, whisk cream until thick. Stir in sugar, swirl over top of trifle and finally sprinkle with remaining almonds. Stud with sliced cherries and serve by spooning out of dish.

Rather like real ale, this is a gem from the past, delighting everyone of all ages since Victoria times.
