Gimme, gimme, gimme…trifle!

In honour of today’s #FlybabyMovieParty (Mamma Mia), for today’s pudding we’re going a bit retro. Something we ate for dessert if we had guests (neighbours or aunties and uncles) when I was a young Abba fan over 30 years ago πŸ™‚

You’ll need:

  • one packet of Bird’s Trifle
  • one glass bowl (this is essential, trifle just doesn’t taste right made in any other vessel)

Break the sponge biscuits and place in bowl.

Make up the jelly and pour over the sponge.

Leave to cool and enjoy the snow outside.

Next up, thick, yellow custard.

Whip up the ‘Dream Topping’. Oh how the retro taste of synthetic cream stirs up the memories! πŸ™‚

Layer it all up: jelly, custard, Dream Topping, chocolate vermicelli – or sprinkles, as they call them over the pond πŸ˜‰ Chill until ready. Enjoy the squelchy sound as you dish out large portions πŸ˜‰

Bon appΓ©tit and happy singalong to “Mamma Mia” Saturday! πŸ™‚
