Altered ingredient amounts.
I used Italian Panettone cake in lieu of madiera cake. (You know - the boxed Panettone you get at Christmas time as a last resort gift....ha!)
I also used fresh nectarines - no other fruit flavours as the nectarines were so flavorsome anyway. I made up my own egg custard. I created only distinct layers.
Layer 1: Panettone cake soak in an orange and cointreau jelly
Layer 2: fresh nectarines (sprinkled with squeezed lemon juice to stop discolouration) - the fruit layer is also half covered with the jelly.
Layer 3: Fresh made egg custard.
I'm looking forward to viewing other 'trifling tweaks' . Enjoy - Evelyn Lundstrom - 26 Jan 2010
Don't turn your nose up at the trifle! I just want to say that you have probably forgotten what a great thing trifle is! My flatmate made this for a dinner the other night....probably used different fruit...but excellent. - 15 Jan 2009
