Trifle Pudding – A yummy, fruity treat for Any occasion

Enjoy making this beautiful Fruit Trifle Pudding, tossing any seasonal fruit and add extra colour to any occasion!

The glorious appearance and the delicious taste in this dessert is a real winner among any other yummy treats. The usual traditional English Trifle Pudding has a generous amount of whipped cream, which I deliberately avoided and added custard cream instead. This, in turn, gave this pudding a lighter texture so that you won’t feel too heavy after tucking into it!

Pineapples alone give a distinct taste and flavour to this pudding. So, remember to add a ripped, juicy pineapple along with other fruits.

Also, make the sponge cake, Jelly in two colours and the custard cream, on the previous day to make the whole process easier. I have given the recipe of the sponge cake below, which is the best choice for this pudding. Do not use the usual butter cake/pound cake/fruit cake even if you are tempted because they tend to crumble and spoil the original delicate taste. The sponge cake stays neat and nice, absorbing the juices and contributing a great deal to the overall taste.

Let’s see what are the ingredients you need;

Sponge cake (thinly sliced) Recipe given below1
Pineapple (stewed) Recipe given below1
Condensed milk2/3 tbsp
Custard cream (Vanilla flavour)-Make according to the
instructions given in the packet
