A quick dessert of raspberries, kiwis and grapes topped with custard and a sprinkling of HobNob biscuit crumbs. I find that this selection or fruits work best with the custard. Other fruits can 'clash' with the custard, and taste unpleasent. Sometimes I use Onken Biopot raspberry yogurt instead of custard. Easy dessert for two!
This recipe is a lovely alternative to the standard sponge trifle at Christmas. It is an attractive layered dessert. This recipe uses a shop-bought Christmas pudding and a tub of premium custard. Christmas cake works well too but it is not as moist.
This recipe reminds me of my childhood. On many a Sunday, my Mum would serve this dessert, to compliment our roast dinner.
This trifle is bursting with exotic fruits – mango, banana, granadilla, papaya, lime and carambola, all supplying lots of flavour as well as essential vitamins. And the trifle looks as special as it tastes.
Everyone loves a trifle. In this lavish, super-quick version, moist almond macaroons laced with sherry are topped with tropical fruit, smooth custard and thick cream.
Plain yoghurt makes the perfect instant dessert – it just needs a little imagination. Add some fruit and a crunchy nut topping and it will round off a meal perfectly. Delicious!
So colourful. This is equally delicious using just vanilla ice cream.
Add cardamom, rosewater, nuts and sulatanas to canned rice pudding for a more updated, international version of a classic dessert.
A yummy and suprisingly tasty mixture of berries and ice cream or yogurt, with a crumbled biscuit layer.
You'll need 4 large bowls, an electric mixer and a triffle bowl (or a 5in deep 8 x 12in glass dish). If you do not have an electric mixer, the prep time is slightly longer as you will have to beat everything by hand. TIP: If you can't find ladyfingers, you can use plain Rich Shorties Biscuits or any plain biscuit TIP: You can add the inside of one vanilla pod or 1 tps vanilla extract to the custard mixture and freeze to make a creamy ice cream.
This delicately spiced trifle calls for sponge lightly soaked in rum for a perfect quick and easy pud.
This is a traditional Italian recipe I prepared while working as a dessert chef in an Italian Restaurant in Dublin. It was a favourite amongst staff and customers and the recipe maintains the traditional egg recipe without using cream. Enjoy!
Being an Australian I love nothing more than a great pavlova. This is a very easy - tasty pavlova! Great to whip up for guests on short notice! :)
This was my favourite dessert when I was growing up. It's so easy and tasty! Has a real tropical taste to it. All you do is throw everything together and you have a nice little dessert! :)
This easy peasy pud can be made ahead - perfect for a party.
This pud finished my Burns supper last year. Best served with my sweet wafers.
A traditional Indian drink/dessert. Surprisingly refreshing but rich, this has a memorable taste. It can be served warm in winter, or over ice in summer.
A tasty apple dessert for kids as a treat. It's just apple with sauces and other treats including ice cream and sweets - good maybe for a party. It's yummy and tasty and easy to make.
A gorgeous trifle, that is so delicious and just that little bit different!!! I was given this recipe many years ago by my Grandma.
