English trifle is a traditional English layered dessert. Its name comes from the old French term trufle, which means “something whimsical”.
It consists of fruit, a thin layer of sponge “fingers” soaked in some type of alcohol, custard, and most importantly, jelly.
A small amount of alcohol is traditionally used for soaking the sponge fingers too. Most commonly, sweet sherry or Madeira wine, but Port is a lovely option too.
The visual aspect of the trifle is actually just as important as the way it tastes, so you'll want to be careful about how you decorate it!
You really can play with it thanks to the many layers of colors and textures it shows and you can choose to top it using any fruit you like!
Modern combinations include gingerbread pumpkin, brownie, red velvet trifle, and basically every dessert combination you can think of, so you can go wild when trying it!
