Trifle

Redirected from English trifle

Trifle is a dessert dish made from a mixture of thick custard, fruit, sponge cake[?], jelly/jello and whipped cream. Most trifles contain a small amount of alcohol (port, sweet sherry or madeira) - non-alcoholic versions use fruit juice instead, as the liquid is necessary to moisten the cake.

A well-made trifle is an extremely decorative dish incorporating the bright colours of the fruit, jelly, jam, and the contrast of the creamy yellow custard and white cream. It is also extremely tasty.
