About this recipe:

faq arrow icon to expand accordian

A classic English trifle with layers of jelly, berries, sponge cake, custard and cream. This lovely dessert could be great for vegans if you use vegan jelly crystals, plant milk and vegan cream. The all-in-one microwave sponge is quick and easy to make although you could use ready-made sponge. Some traditionalists like to sprinkle a few drops of sherry over the sponge as they put it into the bottom of the serving dish but this is not essential.
