A Spot of british trifle

22.06.2016 written by Jane

british trifle
Britain does not have the best reputation for its cuisine, but I feel that this is a little unjust, especially when it comes to puddings. For German speakers the word „pudding“ can cause some confusion, pudding in English means dessert.

This Sunday we have been invited for lunch at some friends and I said I would bring the pudding. I asked them what they would like and they said that they fancied a trifle. Our queen of puddings in England is Nigella Lawson. I like her because you can tell that she loves food and she never holds back on being naughty. By naughty, I mean, full fat and full of flavour.

So I looked up her recipe and thought that I would share it with you today. Maybe you might also like to try it at home. Please do not be frightened by the amount of cream and egg yolks that go into this recipe!
They are worth it calories……I promise.

British Trifle recipe

So here is the simplified Boozy British Trifle recipe from Nigella Lawson:

1)   Make the custard by heating 1 litre of double cream in a pan. While it is heating, whisk 8 egg yolks, 2 whole eggs and 50 g of caster sugar in a bowl.

2)   Once the cream is near boiling, take it off the heat and pour it over the eggs and sugar and mix.

3)   Cook it altogether over a medium heat, stirring all the time for 10 minutes.

4)   When it is thicker, pour it into a cold, clean bowl and add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and leave it to one side and let it cool down.

5)   Take your clear glass bowl and start to build your trifle. Split 16 trifle fingers in half and make them into sandwiches with strawberry jam. Place these at the bottom of your glass bowl.

6)   Pour 500 ml of cream sherry over the sponges.

7)   Now put in 2 packets of frozen thawed berries. Then sprinkle with a tablespoon of caster sugar.

8)   Pour the cool custard over the berries and cover it with cling film and put in the fridge for 24 hours.

9)   Whisk 500 ml of double cream and put it in top of the custard. I like to sprinkle it with almonds, but Nigella uses rose petals and pistachios.


Now sit down and indulge yourself!
