Strawberry Trifle

by Honey Ahmad, on Fri, December 28, 2012

Trifle is one of the easiest and glorious things you can do for dessert. You just need to layer it up, keep it in the fridge overnight and top it off with cream near party hour. No one can say no to a good trifle

"A dessert not to be trifled with!"


2 blocks of butter cake (the rectangular kind you can get at any bakery)
2-3 punnets fresh fruits (we like raspberries and blackberries)
2-3 cups whipping cream
2 Tbs sugar
1 cup almond flakes (toasted)

Strawberry coulis:
500g strawberries
1/4 cup sugar

2 Tbs custard powder
1 liter milk
2-3 Tbs condensed milk
1 vanilla bean (optional)

6 - 8

Unbelievably delicious to have with a strong cup of coffee

For a boozy version, slowly add in 1 cup sweet sherry in between the custard layers


1. Make coulis by simmering on a low fire strawberries with 1/4 cup sugar (10-15 minutes). Allow to cool. You can also use strawberry jam if feeling lazy.

2. For custard, stir in milks, custard powder and split vanilla bean continuously for 5-7 minutes until you get a runny custard. Also allow to cool.

3. Cut butter cake into squares. Spread coulis or jam on each square generously and lay at bottom the trifle bowl. An 8" bowl is a nice size.

4. Pour in custard and allow to soak for few minutes. Drop in fresh fruits.

5. Add another layer of butter cake, coulis, custard and fruit until bowl is almost full.

6. Chill in fridge overnight.

7. Next day, whip cream with 2Tbs sugar and top off you trifle. Sprinkle toasted almonds and more fresh fruits on top. Chill for another hour and serve.
