Fathers Day 2007

It was Father's Day in Malaysia today and I made an English Trifle for the family lunch at my parents. The kids helped out with decorating the trifle too!

Trifle is a fairly easy dessert to make and it goes down well with adults and kids alike. I think it ranks as one of my wife's favourite desserts!

There's no real recipe required - but this is what I do:

I start of with a layer of butter cake or sponge fingers. Then I soak the cake in some of the syrup from a can of fruit cocktail. Next, spread the fruits over the soaked cake. Make a packet of your favourite jelly (by Jelly I mean flavoured Gelatine - I think its referred to as Jello in the US?) and pour it over the fruits. Let it cool and set.

Meanwhile, make up a batch of custard. Either cook your own from scratch or use the instant or powdered kind - its your choice! Spoon the custard over the jelly and again let cool and allow to set.

Cover with Whipped Cream and decorate with roasted almond slices and/or other garnishes - maybe some chocolate shavings... whatever you like really!
