Summer trifle

Every year for Christmas it's my job to make desserts. One of my desserts that I always love to make at Christmas time is summer trifle. It's so easy to make and with Christmas time in Australia usually being so hot a muggy it always goes down a treat. This is also one of those desserts that you can make up to a few days ahead and I think it tastes better.




INGREDIENTS:

1 packet mango jelly (made up to packet directions)

1 jam roll cake

1 litre of custard

2 - 3 passion fruits or 1 can passionfruit

mangoes ( you can use fresh but I just use a combination of frozen and canned mango)


METHOD:


1. Cut your  jam roll into thin slices and make one layer with the cake on the bottom of your trifle dish like so.




2. Add a layer of your mango's and passion fruit.




3. Then add a layer of your mango jelly ( use about 1/2 your made up jelly)




4. Then add about 1/2 your custard in the next layer.




5. Repeat those four steps again and top with drizzled passion fruit.






6. It does need to be made at least a day in advance


Wishing you all a happy 23rd day of Christmas and here's to beating the Christmas crowds  and rush.
