Please note: fresh fruit and vegetables need to be inspected for insect infestation. Please consult our guide

Here is an easy recipe.


  • 1½ cup chopped strawberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup sherry
  • 2 cup heavy cream, whipped (or pareve whipped topping)
  • 3 cup custard, cold
  • 7 whole strawberries & mint leaves (garnish)


  1. Put sponge cake or ladyfingers in small pieces in the bottom of a glass serving bowl, and around the sides if you like
  2. Top with strawberries, sugar and sherry
  3. Spoon in cold custard
  4. Top with whipped cream and garnish with mint leaves and whole berries
  5. 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 ladyfingers in many of the major supermarkets.
