I use red and green fruit in my trifle to represent Christmas but you can use whatever fruit you prefer.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 sponge jam log cake
  • 20 grapes
  • 10 strawberries
  • 2 packs jelly - one red, one green
  • 1 container custard
  • 1 container whipped cream


  1. Best if you start this the day before - make up red jelly in the serving bowl. Once red jelly is set, make the green jelly on top.
  2. Cut the sponge log up and place around the sides of bowl. Pour custard in the middle of the bowl and top with fruit.
  3. Add whipped cream for decoration.

  • I can’t see the cream


  • Oooh, never tried it with grapes before!


  • Where’s the port ! :)


  • I love a good trifle and this looks ace. Thanks.


  • That looks absolutely delicious! Red and Green Fruit is definitely the go for Christmas, I am going to put raspberries with mine as well.


  • Wow thanks I love truffle , looks nice!


  • Something different with the sponge cake and the fruit on top. Perfectly refreshing! :-)


  • I do love a good trifle. This isn’t the traditional type though. You layer the sliced sponge around the bowl. Mix up jelly and pour over. Leave to set. Add custard and then whipped cream on top.


  • Yum I love trifle


  • Beautifully presented dessert, just perfect for Xmas day


  • what a really unique twist on a triffle!


  • Wow what a recipe! Thank for sharing this one! I cannot wait to try this one!


  • what a lovely and different trifle idea, to try. another of my works I have just framed. My hobbies and way of increasing my income. I write poetry and do art. In process of writting verses for friends etc for $10 each for them to give personl messages to their friends,relaives and others. All I need to know is a bit about the reciever and occassion vese needed to express in verse what they want to say whether happy or sad writting and thinking in verse is my expressionable way


  • Gee, wish I had come across this recipe at Xmas just gone. Will have to save it for next Xmas.


  • my turn to make the trifle this year. Might make this one for the kids and a boozy one for the adults :-)
