This is a great Trifle, and the recipe allows for substitutions of different berries, or combinations. Thanks for posting!
Love all kinds of English Trifle. The last 2 that Julesong sent in are fabulous. I rate them both 5**** Gail from Hamilton
I made this trifle as part of our Adopted Recipe Swap #2. I omitted the sherry (purely a personal preference) and drizzled the strawberry juices over the cake. I also changed the layering by putting a layer of cake, berries and pastry cream in the bowl. Then I repeated these layers. This recipe resulted in a dessert that presents beautifully. If you want a spectacular looking dessert to impress someone, this is it! Wonderful layers of cake, strawberries and pastry cream all topped with whipped cream and drizzled with raspberry sauce. The trifle was very good and the only complaint we had was that it wasn’t quite as sweet as we would have liked it to be. After talking with Julesong about this recipe, in the future I’ll add a small amount of sugar to the strawberries before layering. I think adding this will make the dessert truly magnificent for us.
