Here's a delicious dessert which is sure to please anyone who loves chocolate coffee together. I had a little cake left over after making a chocolate wonder cake & came up with this recipe to use it. I like to serve these trifles in tumbler / mixer / low ball glasses but they are equally beautiful in any dessert glass or if you want a quirky presentation, serve them in a coffee cup!

  1. Cut the chocolate sponge to fit your choice of glasses.
  2. Pour the chocolate syrup over the sponges.
  3. Make the custard by mixing the custard powder (or cornflour & vanilla) with the milk & the sugar - add a little milk to make a paste then gradually add the rest. Cook over a medium heat, stirring continuously, until the custard has thickened.
  4. Add the coffee to the custard & beat in with a wooden spoon. allow to cool a little then pour the coffee custard over the chocolate sponges.
  5. Set aside to cool, then chill.
  6. Just before serving, top with the whipped / squirty cream. Dust with cocoa & top with the coffee beans if using.
  7. You can make this a cappuccino trifle by using coffee sponge in place of chocolate. Even jazz it up by soaking the sponges in your fave tipple!
