Tropical Trifle

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by oriana

A different version to the usually strawberry flavoured classic trifle I adapted this from a women's weekly recipe where you made your own Swiss roll and custard so I made it a bit easier and quicker but a great tasting trifle

This trifle was delicious, I made it a few times over the Australian summer and it was always a hit! It made a large amount which meant we could have some the next day...yummy!
