Custard & Strawberry Trifle

                                                                       
This simple trifle is a delicious dessert dish made from strawberry flavor custard, cake and strawberry sauce. I made this last weekend for my guests and believe me it looked so beautiful layered in glass. As per my guests comments I scored full points for decoration and presenting a simple trifle for dessert


                                 Happy Valentine's Day to all my readers....                


Ingredients:
1 packet of Custard (strawberry flavor)
1 ltr Milk
1 packet of Britania Strawberry flavor cake
Some jelly cubes for decoration
Chocolate wafers for decoration


Method:
Pour milk in a heavy container and let it boil. Add sugar and mix well. Stir continuously on low flame till the milk thickens. In a small cup add custard powder with normal temperature of 1/2 cup milk. Gradually add the paste to boiling milk and stir well. When the mixture becomes thick, stitch off the flame and transfer it to a plate to cool off quickly. Peel off the skin on top before you transfer the custard in serving glasses and keep it in fridge.


Ingredients for Strawberry Sauce:
3 cups fresh Strawberry
1/4 cup White sugar (granulated)
1/2 cup Water
3-4 tsp Cornflour


Method:
Take a pan, slightly thaw strawberries and add water. Cook this on low flame for 10-12 minutes. Mix cornflour with little amount of water and pour this mixture in pan. Stir continuously till the mixture thick. Remove from heat and let it cool down. Make puree of this and keep chilled till serving time.


To Arrange Trifle:
Take out the glasses from fridge. Cut the cake slices into bite size and arrange it above custard layer. Now drizzle the strawberry sauce generously over the cake. Drop some jelly cubes on top  cover the glasses with cling warp and put it back in refrigerator until chilled. Remove the cling wrap just before you serve your family members or guests this and bask in the glory of compliments showered on you.

    You can replace asparagus with any other veggies of your choice like carrot, broccoli, mushroom, baby corn etc. Also white sugar would not make any taste-difference to the dish..Hope this helps..Good luck!
