Boozy Trifle


Preparation time:
15-20 minutes

Cooking time:
20-30 minutes (depending on your choice of custard…)

Madeira sponge cake (shop bought is good)
Approx 150g dark sweet cherries (frozen)
Fresh custard approx 1 pint (Home made or shop bought is fine)
Liqueur – Disaronno
600ml double cream
Flaked almonds

Thinly slice the Madeira sponge and line 6 individual trifle dishes. (I use one whole slice on the base and half two more for this outer edges)

Add 5-6 cherries to each glass spreading them evenly – pressing gently into the sponge. Add 1 tablespoon of Disaronno to each dish, pouring evenly over the sponge.

Evenly distribute the custard between the dishes – depending on the depth of your dish there may be a little bit left over. Put in the fridge to chill for at least half an hour.

Meanwhile whip the double cream until it forms very soft peaks – you don’t want it too stiff otherwise it will be difficult to place on top.

Evenly distribute the cream on each trifle.

Toast the flaked almonds (I dry fry mine gently in a small frying pan until lightly brown). Allow to cool. Before serving sprinkle almonds on top of each trifle.

Welcome to the first edition & Welcome to July!

As the warm weather approaches, I often find myself dreaming of picnics.

Whether we actually make it out into the wilderness is another thing all together…  However! I dream of soft blankets, warm sun, good company, a glass of fizz and good food…

The reality when we do make it out is, invariably, overpriced hastily bought, rubbish snacks, over-fizzy pop and over-excited kids!

The chance of peace and quiet is a distant dream and the glass of fizz turns into a glass of water, if I’m lucky, after the kids have all dribbled in it….. (not to mention the inevitable chase of the empty crisp packet as it blows through the park).

None the less, the dream remains, and in it, I have lovely home made food and something delicious to drink….

I quite fancy making the Olive Pastries as posted by Alex or Key Lime Pie as posted by Brennig, both would, I’m sure, pack up well for a picnic.

One thing is for sure, I will be making my own Boozy Trifle.  And if neither time nor weather allow for a picnic, I shall find a moments peace for this…
