Classic Trifle

A much-loved dessert recipe with all your favourite ingredients; custard, fruit, sponge and of course Aeroplane Jelly!!!!


  • 2 x 85 g packets Aeroplane Original Port Wine Flavour Jelly
  • 1 kg apricot halves in natural juice, drained
  • 1 x 375 g Swiss roll, cut into 2cm slices
  • 1 L chilled vanilla custard (double thick)
  • 250 g fresh mixed berries


  1. Prepare both packets of Aeroplane Original Port Wine jelly according to pack instructions and set aside to cool.
  2. Place the drained apricots in the bottom of a large glass serving dish and top with the cooled jelly. Refrigerate until set (approximately 4 hours).
  3. Place Swiss roll slices decoratively up the side of serving dish, pour in vanilla custard and serve topped with mixed berries.
  4. Top with mixed berries as desired.


Although this is a classic trifle, don’t be afraid to add your family favourites, either change the fruit or the layering order. The only rule is, always be sure the jelly is set before adding the next layer.
