I was asked by Jo, to make a Trifle for her husband's 90th birthday party and wanted peaches and custard in it with sherry. This is what I ended up with and was well received. A challenge but a nice result in the end. I thought I would share it with others.


Serves: 10

  • 1 tin canned peach halves in syrup
  • 100 millilitres sherry
  • 75 grams chocolate chips
  • 500 millilitres custard
  • 6 tablespoons natural yogurt
  • 1 chocolate swiss roll (sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 75 grams hundreds and thousands
  • 1 tablespoon Bird's original custard powder
