   Ingredients needed

   Sponge cake
   Jelly - 1 small packet Raspberry or strawberry flavor
   Any fruits of your choice.
   Sugar syrup or sugar water - 2-3 tbsp
   A glass container or tall glass for serving individually.

  For the custard layer

   Vanilla Custard powder - 2 tbsp
   Milk - 2 1/2 cups
   Warm Milk - 2 tbsp for mixing custard
   Sugar - 4 tbsp

Fruit trifle


Boil 1/4 cup of water with 2 tbsp of sugar for a few minutes. Leave it to cool. This is the sugar water.

For the custard layer 

Boil milk, mix 2 tbsp of custard powder with 2-3 tbsp of warm milk and make a paste.

Once the milk boils, reduce the heat to low and add the custard paste to the milk slowly stirring continuously. After it becomes a little thick, remove from flame. Leave it to cool.

Then keep it in the refrigerator. Refer my fruit custard recipe for more details.

For the fruits layer

Pineapple, apple, mangoes (ripe but firm), strawberry, seedless grapes or any fruits of your choice but avoid using bananas and oranges as I personally feel that it makes the trifle soggy. Cut the fruits into small pieces and keep it aside.You can keep apples in a cup of water to which a few drops of lemon juice is added to prevent discoloration.

For the jelly layer

Choose Raspberry or strawberry flavor as it makes the trifle very attractive and colorful.

Prepare the jelly as per instructions on the pack. After it cools, pour it in a tray and refrigerate it for it to set. Do not keep it in the freezer.

How to arrange or serve Trifle
