I know not everyone who reads my blog consumes alcohol so don’t worry there are kirsch free options as well! But on the flip side, others love a boozy trifle and I get so many comments when I don’t make a boozy trifle that its not just right! First make the custard as this will need to chill before you make up the trifle. Melt the chocolate - either in the microwave or very carefully in a bain marie (a heatproof bowl placed over a pan of simmering water). Leave to cool.

If I had to choose one dessert as the most nostalgic for me, that would be this family recipe for English Trifle. Every holiday we would travel to my aunt’s house for a huge feast and a dazzling dessert table covered with homemade chocolate cake, lemon and mincemeat tarts, usually a pie of some sort, and of course, English Trifle. A trifle is a layered dessert that contains custard, sherry-soaked cake, fruit, jam and whipped cream. In spite of this trifle being rich and chocolatey, the fluffy mousse and Cool Whip keep it from being too heavy or filling.

Ok, we’ll make it in a sec, but first I’ll talk about some substitutions if you can’t get a couple of the ingredients where you live. Substitute for Skor Bar: One thing to be aware of when it comes to using fruit in jelly is that some fresh fruits will prevent your jelly from setting; these include fresh pineapple, kiwi and papaya. Using these fruits are part of tinned mixture doesn’t seem to have that effect though…don’t ask me why. Break each sponge finger into 4 pieces, place in a serving dish and cover with the cooled jelly. Refrigerate for 30 - 40 mins. Add the custard to the melted chocolate and stir well. Transfer to a saucepan and heat very gently, for just 20–30 seconds, stirring constantly until the custard is smooth and glossy. Don’t allow to get too warm.

As you can tell from the ingredients, this is not a fussy recipe as most of the ingredients have no measurements. You can just use as much as you like for the most part; I am showing how to make individual trifles, but to make it like Sheila’s (top photo) just layer everything in a large glass bowl.

We also love our desserts, or “puddings” as they are called in the UK, and sometimes combine chocolate with traditional recipes to create things like chocolate trifle. My very British friend, Sheila Next, layer on the rasberry gelatin, just before it has completely set (see pic.). Place the trifles in the fridge while you make the custard. I chopped fresh strawberries and used fresh raspberries as well. It’s not uncommon for people to use frozen fruit, thaw it out and macerate it, especially in the winter months when [good] fresh fruit is not readily available. Some English cooks don’t macerate the fruit at all, they just use it as is. Unless I’m getting my berries at their peak season, I tend to macerate them or they are a bit too tart. Macerate the sliced berries with sugar and sherry and set aside.

Whip up your own delicious chocolate trifle in a few simple steps for the perfect dessert to enjoy at home with loved ones. Use milk or a milk alternative to make your perfect custard. Vary the milk quantity in the custard and/or topping for your desired consistency. Add more or less sugar to suit your taste. Finish with a slice of fresh fruit and sponge fingers before grating a little more chocolate over the top.

And hello… would it look this gorgeous? In a trifle bowl or large glass salad bowl, layer half of the brownies, mousse, cherries and Cool Whip. If you want to avoid using kirsch, you can use tinned cherries that are in syrup, or the cherry pie filling. Or, you can de-stone fresh cherries! It is entirely optional, and where all you are doing is layer different bits, it is very easy to use what you want. To make the trifle, cut the brownies or chocolate cake into fairly thin slices and spread with the jam. Sandwich together and arrange in the bottom of a large trifle bowl. Pour over the kirsch or cherry brandy, then sprinkle over the cherries.raspberry gelatin (Jello), prepared, but make it so you can put the dessert together before it is completely set Top each trifle with whipped cream, just spooning it on as Sheila did, or piping it on, as I did. Addyour favorite chocolates, like Cadbury’s Buttons or Flake! For the rest of the trifle I used a tub of brownie bites from the bakery aisle, the cherries from the jar of cherries in kirsch, fresh cherries for the decoration, cherry jam, and some grated chocolate and sprinkles. I had never had a chocolate trifle before and was really amazed at how all the flavors worked together so well! Of course, I had to ask for the recipe. Sheila has graciously permitted me to share her recipe with you and I don’t know about you, but I’m elated that she did! Use skimmed, semi-skimmed, whole, coconut or almond milk to make your perfect custard. Vary the milk quantity in the custard and/or topping for your desired consistency. Add more or less sugar to suit your taste. Add fresh fruit of your choice* with the sponge fingers before adding the jelly. Top with sliced fruit or grate a little more chocolate over the top.

Growing up, my family always used Bird’s Custard Powder in our English trifle. However, it’s hard to find where I live, so I went ahead and made the custard from scratch. I really do love pudding, but for this dessert, I insist on using custard. There’s something about the beautiful aroma of custard that reminds me of the house we lived in before coming to America. I savor it. For the custard, I bought a good quality ready made custard from the chilled aisle – I chop up some dark chocolate finely (it’s good to use dark chocolate even if you don’t like dark chocolate because the flavour lightens a lot in the custard). You add the two to a pan and heat together until the chocolate has melted!I either make it in a large trifle bowl or a huge glass salad bowl, and there’s always enough to go around no matter how many people I’m feeding. To make the custard begin by heating the milk in a saucepan. You just want it to come to a simmer, you’ll see steam rising from the surface as well. (If you are using Bird’s custard, follow the preparation instructions on the canister for two pints.) Over the years, trifles [in America] have been adapted to fit into a family’s tastes. Some use pudding, some don’t include sherry or Madeira wine, but instead non-alcoholic juices, and some even use chocolate and other ingredients.
