This Sweet Taste of Saturday is in honor of my British mother who often serves this on special occasions including New Year’s Day. It is a traditional English Trifle and I’ve stuck as close to possible to the true ingredients. Bird’s custard can be found at some grocery stores and stores like World Imports. If you can’t find it a tapioca pudding could be substituted. Use a clear glass bowl to show off the layers!
Spread jam on the sponge cake slices and arrange the slices jam side up so as to cover the bottom of the trifle or similar sized serving bowl. Drizzle the sherry evenly over the sponge cake.
Chop the peach slices into bite size pieces and spread them over the sponge cake.
Prepare the custard per the directions on the Bird’s Custard Powder package, using the required amount of sugar and milk (I listed the recommended amounts of each in the above list). Pour the custard over the peaches.
Place a piece of plastic cling wrap over the custard so a “skin” doesn’t form and cool completely in the refrigerator.
Whip the cream with a hand mixer on high until thick and peaks form. Spread the whipped cream evenly on top of the custard.
Sprinkle the almonds on top of the cream.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
