I make this trifle for the family. It usually manages about 8 portions, unless you are greedy like me and finish it in 4 sittings. You can make it with or without brandy, scotch or flavouring of your choice. Allow two days setting before serving.

Summer is not complete without the perfect strawberry trifle. Although this trifle cheats a little in its preparation, layer upon layer of total deliciousness will keep family and friends coming back for more long after they are full. This trifle is at its best when using fresh, sun-warmed local strawberries from May through August. Add quince jelly to the trifle both as a layer above the sponge and whisked into the cream for an extra wow factor.

I got this recipe from my cousin. It's very easy to make and this is her recipe for the sponge.

Quick and easy sherry trifle that will have your dinner guests begging for more! Food doesn't need to be complicated to be mouthwateringly tasty... This will generously serve up to 8 people. The smaller amounts for a smaller trifle - the larger amounts for a bigger size. :) For best results, prepare the day before to allow refrigeration time.

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.

A perfect Sunday dessert. Sherry-soaked raspberries are layered with sherry-soaked sponge fingers and a gorgeous vanilla pastry cream. The top is garnished with macaroons for a final touch. Make any time of year, as you can use frozen raspberries for this trifle as well.

This makes a large trifle - enough for a 3 litre dish - use clear serving dishes so you can see the lovely layers! Adjust according to your needs. It can be modified for individual servings as well. It's best to partially prepare 1 to 2 days in advance. Letting the sponge soak up the sherry before serving, it makes a big difference and the trifle will be better for it.

This trifle tastes so luxurious that your family or friends will think it took you all day to make it! This version doesn't involve jelly which I think makes trifle so time consuming. I use frozen raspberries instead. They become nice and soft when they thaw and soak into the sponge. To make your prep time even quicker, use a plain sponge cake or Madeira from a local bakery and ready made custard. All you have to do is arrange the layers and whip the cream!
