Top tips for the ultimate trifle
Because Christmas dessert just isn’t the same without this layered delight.
1. Check all the boxes.
A great trifle recipe has each of these elements: slices of cake or biscuit, fruit and jelly, cream and custard, and garnishes for the final flourish.
2. Try a classic recipe.
Tinned peach slices, peach jelly and a whole lot of custard are all the ingredients you need for a classic retro trifle.
3. Mix it up with your favourite flavours.
Bonkers about brownies? Use your favourite cake to make your own version, like this decadent chocolate brownie trifle recipe.
4. Reinvent your favourite dessert, trifle style.
Summer wouldn’t be complete without a Peppermint Crisp tart, so take some inspiration to make your own minty caramel trifle.
