Hii, it’s the season of luscious Strawberries so how can we not have a recipe for Strawberries!!
I am going to share my classic Trifle recipe which combines a sponge, custard n any fruit be it pineapple, mixed fruit etc but today I will be using Strawberries as most people love this super fruit, but you can choose the fruit that you like, even fresh caramelised oranges tastes great in this Trifle.
Ingredients for Strawberry Trifle
- 1 vanilla sponge cake
- 10 to 12 big Strawberries cut lengthwise n mixed with a little castor sugar
- 2 tbsp mixed fruit jam, ( mix with 1 tsp water n warm a little to make it saucy)
- For the Custard
- 1 litre milk
- 3/4 cup custard powder ( use Brown n Polson, gives the best results)
- 8 tbsp sugar ( lesser if u prefer)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp butter
- Half cup whipping cream
Method for Strawberry Trifle
For the Custard, heat the milk in a pan, add the sugar n allow to boil, mix the Custard powder in a little water or milk till it is sauce consistency n slowly pour in the boiling milk and keep on stirring taking care that no lumps are formed. Cool the custard n then add the vanilla extract, butter and blend it with a hand blender, then add the cream and blend again till it is smooth and creamy.
Cut the sponge cake n cut into 2″ pieces n apply the jam on it!
To Assemble the Trifle;
Take a transparent bowl so that your layers show, line it first with a layer of the sponge cake, then add some Strawberries n pour the Custard on top , again line with the sponge, the strawberries n the Custard n top it with some Strawberries n serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream
