Simple Fruit Trifle
A Lovely Fruit Trifle
1 packet Strawberry jelly,
400 ml. water
2 Tbls. Custard powder
400 ml. milk
1 tin pineapple rings
1 box/tin double cream
cocoa powder for dusting


1Measure 400ml of boiled water and add to that a packet of strawberry jelly.

It should now be a red/pink liquid. Pour the liquid into a bowl, and wait for it to cool down, then put it in the fridge.

While the jelly is in the fridge make the custard.

To make the custard measure 400ml of milk in a measuring jug and put into a pan for boiling.

Leave roughly two tablespoons of milk and add to that two tablespoons of custard powder. Stir the two together and it should form a yellow paste, depending on colour of powder.

Mix the paste with the milk and stir continuously with a wooden spoon. When it starts to thicken, turn the gas off and let it cool.

When the jelly has set and the custard has cooled, put the custard on top of the jelly and put in the fridge.

While it is in the fridge, whisk some cream and cut the bananas.

Take the trifle out and put some pinapple rings in the custard. Press them as hard as you can into the custard.

Last but not least spread the whipped cream on top of the custard and then put the bananas on top. Then dust with cocoa powder.
