Australian Trifle

Australian Trifle

A beautifully layered dessert of jelly, custard, cake, and fruit. This is a tradition in our house during Christmas. However, it is perfect for any time, especially hot summer evenings.

Make sure you give yourself plenty of time ahead to make it, as it takes awhile to set each layer before adding the next.

Single large bowls are great for family BBQs, however individual cup trifles are an easier dessert to manage when there are a lot of children involved.

Ingredients

Bottom Jelly Layer

1 packet green lime jelly

1/2 jam roll cake

1 tin fruit salad, drained

Middle Jelly Layer

1 packet red raspberry jelly

Top Jelly Layer

1 packet yellow lemon jelly

Custard Layer

2 tablespoons custard powder

2 tablespoons sugar

600ml milk

Cream Layer

300ml cream

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1 tin orange or mandarine segments

Equipment

glass serving bowl

Recipe Directions

  1. Make up the green lime jelly and put aside to start cooling while you prepare the serving bowl.

  2. Cut the jam roll cake into 1cm slices and layer around the base of a serving bowl. Sprinkle with the drained fruit salad.

  3. Pour in the cooled green lime jelly and place in the refrigerator to set for 3 hours.

  4. Make the red raspberry jelly. When cool, add to the serving bowl. Chill to set.

  5. Make the yellow lemon jelly. When cool, add to the serving bowl. Chill to set.

  6. Make the custard according to the packet instructions. When done, continue to stir off the heat until cool enough to place on top of the yellow lemon jelly layer without it melting.
    If you leave the custard to cool without stirring, it gets a skin and the layer becomes lumpy.

  7. Whisk the cream to thicken. Just before it is finished, add the sugar and vanilla then continue whisking until thick.

  8. Place the thickened cream on top of the custard layer, then decorate with the tinned orange or mandarin segments.

  9. Chill until ready to serve.
