What's Christmas Without Trifle

Trifle - Sweet and refreshing on a hot, Darwin Christmas. This recipe is ideal for those who want to say that they made it but the truth is, they only assembled it all together.

1 jam roll
2 packets portwine/raspberry jelly (follow manufacturer's direction and allow to set)
1 litre custard (I made mine with 2/3 cup of custard powder and 1 litre of milk, boiled until it thickens and let to cool)
500gm fruit salad in syrup (drained, and reserve the syrup)
600ml cream

  1. Cut jam roll into 1cm slices.
  2. Line half the jam rolls into glass bowl,
  3. Drizzle 1/3 of the fruit salad syrup over the jam roll slices.
  4. Cut jelly into cubes and fill the glass bowl with half the amount of jelly made.
  5. Pour the custard over the jelly.
  6. Top with half the drained fruit salad.
  7. Place the remaining jam rolls on top of the fruit salad layer.
  8. Repeat steps 4 - 6.
  9. Whip cream until cream almost triple in volume (but before it turns into butter)
  10. Using the spatula, layer the cream on top of the trifle.

Note: No cream layer in my pic as it was nearly overflowing, and my partner has to take it into work so I didn't want cream all over the car.
