Welcome back narrator! but this is not a English Trifle!

Michael Giffin says:

I agree. In a real trifle the cubes of cake would be drizzled with sherry or a liqueur. There would be thick pouring custard (not baked) and a lot more of it (the cake would be soaked). There would also be cubes of set jelly (jello).

MemoGrafix says:

Somehow I get the feeling this isn’t English. Judging from the different one in the video suggestions to the right. Or are Trifles made with whatever You wish?

ELIAKIM Joseph Sophia says:

That’s not how we make an English trifle. English trifle has jelly in it that covers the fruit and cake. When it is set, then custard goes on the top, sprinkled with coconut.

This isnt an English trifle ….. this is a poor facsimile….. Real English trifle has custard…not instant pudding… it also has alcohol like sweet sherry, grand marnier etc ….this is like a short cut version for people who dont know how to make any desserts….

Megan Davies says:

This is terrible and definately not an ENGLISH trifle. Where’s the sherry and custard? You NEED alcohol in a proper trifle… better recipe is here but its really simple. Bottom layer cake, jelly (jello) and alcohol (usually sherry but you can experiment with others) a layer of fruit (usually berries) a layer of custard that is then set and then a layer of whipped cream topped with chocolate or hundreds and thousands…. I think this has got me more mad then it needed to but what you have above is some kind of weird fruit salad.

Joseph Wilson says:

Where’s the ground beef?

owen gleeson says:
