BM #1 - AAE - Day 15 - Fruit Trifle | Trifle Pudding

So I successfully complete week 2 of my Blogging Marathon. It surely is weighing me down. With the festivities in full swing, blogging everyday is pinching a little bit. But I wont give up :-) I just wont. You know me well :-) Once decided, won't leave it for anything.

Saturday nights are dessert nights. Sweet indulgence is allowed. Guilt free pure indulgence is ok once in a week. I initially wanted to make just some custard, but later realized I could make it into a trifle. The good thing about this trifle is one can make this recipe as per their taste and requirement and it’s so simple to make. If you have lot of work for get together or party then this trifle can be very handy as everything can be put together in less than 20 minutes provided having some cake in hand.  Just make the custard, arrange the trifle, keep it in fridge and forget about it until it’s time to serve and wow your family, friends and guests with this delicious and attractive trifle.

For Custard
3 tbsp custard powder,
500 ml milk,
4 tbsp sugar,

For Assembling:
1 packet cake, I have used Britannia pineapple cake,
1 cup apple, cubed,
1 cup pineapple, cubed,
1 cup banana, cubed,
1 cup pomegranates,
1/2 cup grated coconut, lightly roasted

  1. Follow the instructions on the custard pack to make the custard. Allow it to cool completely.
  2. Cut all the fruits of your choice and place in individual bowls. Set aside.
  3. If you have left over sponge cake, you can use it. I didn't have, so I have used Britannia cake, cut into cubes.
  4. In a trifle glass, put 2 spoons of the custard at the base. Then add the sponge cake. 
  5. Arrange the fruits of your choice one over the other. Sprinkle some roasted coconut.
  6. Now spoon over some more custard as the final layer.
  7. Garnish with roasted coconut and pomegranates.
  8. Leave it in the refrigerator for and hour.
  9. Serve chilled.

If you have some left over sponge from any previous cake that you would have made, put it in a ziplock and freeze it. You could use the sponge for making a trifle. The choice of fruits depends upon the season and taste. You could alter the flavor of the trifle by changing the flavor of the custard too. I have used plain custard.

You could add more variations like cubed jellies, caramel drizzling, chopped roasted nuts, whipped cream, the choice is endless. It all depends on what you have in hand and how elaborate you would want to make it into. Enjoy :-)
