About this recipe:I love strawberry trifle - but you may vary the fruit, of course, to use whatever your favourite happens to be. It's best to plan ahead a bit because the sponge fingers need awhile to soak up the sherry.
10-12 sponge fingers
3 tablespoons sherry
1/2 sachet custard powder
250ml milk, or as needed
300g strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 bananas, sliced
4 tablespoons sherry
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
a few strawberries for decoration
Prep:30min › Cook:10min › Extra time:1hr soaking › Ready in:1hr40min
Line the bottom of a trifle bowl with sponge fingers and drizzle 3 tablespoons of sherry over them. Leave to stand for an hour so that the fingers can soak up the sherry.
Prepare the custard with the milk according to the instructions on the packet and leave to cool.
Soak the chopped fruit in the rest of the sherry, add sugar if desired and spread over the sponge fingers.
Pour the cold custard over the fruit.
Finally, beat the cream with the vanilla and top the trifle with it. Decorate with the reserved strawberries. Chill until serving.
