Introduction

My mother (Sheri) has made this on special occasions, (including feast days) ever since I can remember first cooking with her. It is her speciality dessert, appropriately named! My whole family are huge fans of this trifle and it's usually polished off before any other dessert. A real crowd-pleaser! I love it just because it seems to 'belong' to my mum!
