Australian English Trifle

I got this from my mother. It’s as English as you can get. Decorate with whipped cream and flaked chocolate.

Australian English Trifle


  • 1 (10 inch) sponge cake, cut in cubes
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can fruit cocktail, drained
  • 1 (3 ounce) package port wine flavored gelatin mix
  • 2 tablespoons custard powder
  • 4 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk


1 Place the cake in a glass serving bowl and cover with the canned fruit. Prepare gelatin according to package instructions and pour over fruit and cake.

2 Combine custard powder and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in milk and cook until thick and creamy. Pour over sponge cake mixture. Chill until set.
