Classic Trifle

A classic British dessert with a twist of Aeroplane Jelly to create a dessert centerpiece. Although the dictionary defines 'Trifle' as being something insignificant, this dessert is anything but!

  • 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.
