Christmas Winter Berry Trifle

Summer has gone , Autumn is in its lasting dying throws and winter is on its way but why not settle down with a Christmas Berry Trifle.


500g bag fresh or frozen mixed berries.
4tbsp golden caster sugar.
44tbsp creme of cassis ( or any other berry liquor , or basically anything you fancy putting it , just leave out the drink if you want children to eat it)
250 Madeira cake sliced.
250ml tub mascarpone.
500ml custard.
2tsp vanilla.
284 ml and 142ml pot of double cream.


Put the berries and sugar in a pan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in the cassis and cool slightly.

Put a layer of Madeira cake in the bottom of a large glass trifle dish and spoon over 2/3 of the berry mix ( you might not need all of the liquid)

Beat the mascapone until smooth the gradually beat in the custard and stir in the vanilla. Spoon on top of the cake and berries. Whip the cream to soft peaks and dollop onto the custard. Chill for an hour. Just before serving, spoon over the rest of the berry mix.
