Here is an easy recipe.
1 1/2 c. chopped strawberries
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. sherry
2 c. heavy cream, whipped (or pareve whipped topping)
3 c. custard, cold
7 whole strawberries & mint leaves (garnish)
Put sponge cake or lady fingers in small pieces in the bottom of a glass serving bowl, and around the sides if you like. Top with strawberries, sugar and sherry. Spoon in cold custard. Top with whipped cream and garnish with mint leaves and whole berries. Chill until ready to serve. Trifle can also be made in individual parfait glasses. Other fruits may be added in place of all or part of the strawberries. However, the total amount should not excess 1 1/2 cups. Drained fruit cocktail may be used.
I have purchased the soft lady fingers in many of the major supermarkets.
Good Luck and regards............
