Individual Trifles in glasses


  • 1 jam roll cut into 6 slices

  • Boronia Marsala or fortified wine

  • 1 packet jelly crystals

  • Custard - hame made or bought

  • Cream - whipped

  • Fresh Blueberries

  • Fresh Strawberries


  • 1.

    Select 6 whiskey glasses (preferably with a wide base)

  • 2.

    Place a slice of the jam roll in the base of each whiskey glass

  • 3.

    Sprinkle Marsala over each slice of roll

  • 4.

    Make up Jelly using only half the amount of water listed on the packet, and while warm, pour in each glass to cover the jam roll

  • 5.

    Place the glasses in the refrigerator to set.

  • 6.

    Either make up a small amount (500ml) or open a carton of custard.

  • 7.

    Pour over the set jelly in the glasses till half full and put back in the fridge.

  • 8.

    When the remainder of the jelly is cold (not set), gently pour a layer in each glass over the custard (pour onto a spoon is best) and place back in the fridge to set.

  • 9.

    Once set - place a layer of whipped cream over the jelly and decorate with washed and quartered strawberries and blueberries.

  • 10.

    A light dusting of icing sugar on top also looks nice!

  • 11.

    Serve to each guest chilled - with a long spoon.


Make sure the custard and the jelly is cool when pouring in, and if the custard is not set - pour in the jelly very slowly (one in the picture was poured too quickly as you can see - no layering effect)

I wouldn't worry about the layering effect - they look so good I wanna lick the screen!
