1 large chocolate swiss roll (available at Coles) or Unfilled Chocolate sponge sheet
1 litre thick chocolate custard (I use St. Pauls, but you can make it from scratch if you like so)
1 175gm original oreo pack (crushed)
600 ml chilled whipping cream
1 cup vanilla custard
2 cups mini oreos to decorate
Prepare everything before layering
Crush the oreos in the food processor or by bashing them in a zip lock bag with the rolling pin.
Whip the cream. Make sure its super chilled before you whip it.
Cut the swiss roll in 1 inch thick slices.
In a deep clear serving bowl (trifle bowl), lay a thick layer of chocolate custard, then swiss roll slices, vanilla custard, half of the whipped cream, crushed oreos, rest of the cake and rest of the chocolate custard. Let it set for 5 minutes and then lay a final layer of whipped cream and decorate with some mini oreos.
Let it cool and set for 6 hours or more in the fridge and serve.
Mango Trifle is my very own recipe to celebrate Summer and the king of Fruits “MANGO” ❤
1.5 ltr. Full cream milk (1 cup reserved)
4 tbspns mango custard powder
2 cups sugar
2 unfilled sponge
½ cup mango nectar
2 cups mangoes (diced)
1 cup fresh cream
1 mango jello (set)
2 mangoes cut into cubes or thin slices
1 cup whipped cream
For custard I use Rafhan (Pakistani brand) custard powder in mango flavor. Boil 1 cup less 1.5 litre milk in a non-stick pan. Dissolve custard powder in that reserved one cup of milk and gradually add it to the boiling milk with gentle constant stirring followed by sugar.
Cook on low heat until it is thick and sugar is dissolved. Keep aside to bring it to room temperature.
Meanwhile cut the fruit, whip the cream and set the jello.
In your trifle bowl put two big spoonsful of custard and then one sheet of unfilled sponge. Now damp the sponge with mango nectar using a pastry brush. Then a layer of custard, cut up mangoes, diced jello, whipped cream and then another layer of unfilled sponge.
Damp that layer of sponge with mango nectar as well and then a final layer of custard.
Refrigerate for 2 hours until everything is set.
Now whip some cream to stiff peaks and cut some mango to decorate the top pf trifle.
Decorate as you like and chill for another hour if you have to otherwise serve.
This is my dessert to entertain the guests when I am short of time. I get everything ready made from the supermarket and just use my layering skills and taste buds to create this awesome dessert which is highly appreciated in my friend’s circle…..
