A trifle that is so delicious yet just a little bit different. It easy to prepare and leave in the fridge until needed.


Serves: 8 

  • 250g ginger cake
  • 1 (400g) tin pears, drained and quartered
  • 50g dark brown sugar
  • 150ml cider
  • 300ml homemade custard
  • 150ml cream, whipped
  • 30g slivered almonds, toasted
  • 30g glazed ginger

Preparation:20min  ›  Extra time:3hours chilling  ›  Ready in:3hours20min 

  1. Cut the ginger cake into slices and arrange at the bottom of a trifle dish.
  2. Cut the pears into slices and layer on top of the cake.
  3. Dissolve the sugar in the cider over a low heat then pour over the cake and pears; allow to absorb. I usually allow at least 30 minutes.
  4. Pour cooled custard over the moist cake base and let set leave in the fridge overnight if you have the time.
  5. Decorate with the whipped cream, sliced toasted almonds and glazed ginger.
