ORANGE AND MANGO TRIFLE

ORANGE AND MANGO TRIFLE

Happy Father’s day to all Fathers.

I read a very good quote somewhere, but I do not know the author, the words are very nice-
“The best thing a father can give to their children is, to love their mother”.


This post is dedicated to all Fathers, who give their endless love to their children. This cool fruity dessert is suitable for father’s day evening dinner, because it is summer in the northern hemisphere, where most of the countries are celebrating father’s day with enthusiasm and zest.


Many years ago, when I ate trifle for the first time, at my friend's place I really enjoyed the taste of it. Some bite in the cake, freshness-flavors of fruits and coolness -richness of cream and custard, all were melting in my mouth at the same time. Since that day, it became one of my best desserts, and naturally when I am enjoying it too much, I am also making it for other people to enjoy this great dessert at the parties. I also like that you can have almost any variety depending on the fruit of the season, or make it all chocolate, the variations are endless.


One of our family friends was throwing a party on the last weekend, and asked me to bring some sweet dish. This is summer time and a lot of fresh fruits are available in this season, so I thought to use them and make a trifle.


Trifle is a summery cool dessert, which does not need any cooking, only custard is made and Madeira cake is baked. Both cake and custard can be bought ready made from the shop, rest of the ingredients are just chopped, mixed and organized in a bowl. Some people do not use custard in a trifle, and that’s o k. Like I said, it’s really up to one’s imagination. The key is to add a sponge, a soft creamy sauce and fruit, layer it and have a play of different textures in the same bowl. This dessert is served cold and can also be made in individual bowls.


In this trifle, I have used leftover egg less cake from my fridge, and vegetarian jelly/jello, which is easily available in Indian grocery stores.

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 small Madeira cake (200 grams)
  • 1 small packet of jelly (80 grams)
  • I big mango (400 grams)
  • 2 oranges (400 grams) * I have used oranges in sugar syrup.
  • 200 ml fresh cream
  • 2 tbs icing sugar
  • 2 tbs custard powder, 2 tbs sugar and milk for custard
  • 3 tbs sliced pistachios

METHOD

  • Prepare jelly basing on the instruction on the packet and leave it in the fridge.
  • Prepare custard basing on the instruction on the packet with 2 tbs powder, add sugar and leave it to cool.
  • Whip cream with icing sugar and leave it aside.
  • Chop mangoes, oranges in the shape as shown above.
  • Slice cake, and put the first layer of the cake in the serving or big bowl.
  • Now layer some custard on top of it.
  • Now layer mango and then a layer of jelly.
  • One more layer of custard, and lastly a layer of cream.
  • Decorate on top with oranges and pistachios, serve cold.

  14. I'm not sure about the people who make trifle without custard, that's the best bit. I'm very glad to see you didn't go down that route!

  20. Trifles are delightful, and this one looks so too! Every time I think of trifles, I think of the "Friends" episode where Rachel takes over for Monica in the kitchen on a trifle she's making for Thanksgiving and the pages of the cookbook were stuck together, so she starts adding meat and other things. Still makes me laugh. Thanks for sharing this lovely meatless trifle at From the Archives Friday! LOL.

  22. We love our trifles here in sunny S Africa, but I must say I've never tried one with oranges and mangoes. What a interesting fruit combination and those two flavors go so well together too. Fortunately this is one pudding I can make, probably because I can buy the sponge cake at the local store, so I can't really mess it up ;-) I think we'll be trying this one this weekend. Thanks Sadhna
