...and a little warning in advance of Monday, when I become Wimbledon obsessed and sit in
front of the TV until the 7th July eating anything strawberry related. I think things are going
to be food-heavy around here, I hope that's OK? and I warn you now. I can't wait.
If the weather today is anything to go by, we might be in for a sunny couple of tennis weeks, but then again, I've probably just jinxed all that. Today, we had a BBQ and I made a trifle for dessert.
This is not a traditional trifle, but I don't deviate from the classic too much - I just don't include the sponge base. As you may know, I am not the biggest fan of sponge, so I substitute with the help of caramel biscuits.
What I Used:
500g Ambrosia custard carton
1 pack of strawberry jelly [135g]
8 Lotus biscuits
canned whipped cream
handful of flaked almonds
I bought this trifle bowl for £2.25 in Sainsburys. £2.25 and I could not resist.
Perfect size for around 4 servings [6 if you are being mean with your portion sizes]:
