This trifle is a traditional Maltese recipe, the way my mother makes it. Honestly it is a calorie bomb...but it is soooo good you almost forget that! :p

Makes 1 large trifle
  • 1 ready-made sponge cake
  • 1 jar of strawberry jam
  • 1 cup peach juice
  • 4 tbsp sherry
  • 1 litre custard (ready-made)
  • 500ml whipping cream
  • 1 big tin fruit macedonia + any other fruit to fill
  • strawberries + other fruit to decorate
Start by slicing the sponge cake into layers, depending on how many layers you would like your trifle to have. I usually use a 2 inch high sponge and divide it into 3 layers. Mix the juice with the sherry, and divide it into the number of sponge layers you plan to have.

Put a layer of sponge into the bottom of a container, preferably a big glass bowl. Put a generous amount of jam and spread it on top of the sponge.  Spread a part of the juice and sherry mix on top of the first sponge layer. Put some fruit on top, and then cover everything with a thick layer of custard. Repeat this process until you place the last sponge layer on top. Spread with jam and wet with the juice mixture.  

Beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form, then spread or pipe on top of the trifle. Decorate with the strawberries or any other fruit.
