I don't think I've ever written a book without a trifle in it, and I'm not about to start now. Besides, this is one of those puddings that looks spectacular, but requires the least amount of effort and scarcely any time at all to make. And by the way, when I say "make", I really mean assemble.
The taste, though, is glorious and, for all its simplicity of construction, it feels like a big deal. Rich, though, which means you can feed a large tableful of people with one fabulous mound.
