My once a year birthday treat, as a none too big cake lover but a lover of chocolate (of all kinds) it is a comfort pudding of the wicked variety. It can be made with a shop bought swiss roll.


Serves: 1 trifle

  • 1 chocolate swiss roll
  • 1 tin black cherries (drained and stoned)
  • kirsch (to taste)
  • 1 packet chocolate blancmange (made as per packet)
  • 1 tub whipped to soft peaks heavy cream
  • chocolate decorations (of choice)

  • Slice the Swiss roll and place in a large glass bowl.
  • Spoon cherries over.
  • Mix cherry juice and kirsch to taste and pour evenly over Swiss roll. (If you prefer you can reduce the juice in a saucepan to the required consistency). Chill.
  • Pour over cooled chocolate blancmange and make level, chill in fridge.
  • Pour over cream and smooth over. Decorate to your delight. I use chocolate buttons, crumbled flake bars, home made chocolate curls or even chocolate sprinkles.
