Very Cherry
  • Description:

    If you’re one of those people who find themselves fighting with others over cherries, this might just become your new favourite trifle recipe. Possibly best known as a dessert for the festive season, trifle is loved for both its taste and the loving memories it conjures up. This particular one calls for minimal ingredients and has a distinct flavour that will see you making it time and again. Using Swiss roll for the cake layers adds a special flair and a touch of class to its presentation. Be sure to use a good amount of maraschino cherries for a truly delicious treat. Serves: 4

  • Ingredients:

    250 ml cream
    45 ml castor sugar
    5 ml vanilla essence
    4 mini Swiss rolls

    500 ml ready-made custard
    1 can (410 g) Rhodes Very Cherry fruit cocktail, drained

    115 g Rhodes granadilla pulp
    Maraschino cherries to serve

  • Method:

    1. Combine the cream, castor sugar and vanilla essence. Beat until thick.
    2. Set aside until required.
    3. Slice and arrange the Swiss rolls by placing half of the slices in a layer at the bottom of 4 glass dishes or jars. Cover with custard.
    4. Spoon half of the Rhodes Very Cherry on top of the custard, followed by a layer of whipped cream.
    5. Make two more layers with the rest of the Swiss rolls and fruit (one layer each), finishing with whipped cream.
    6. Top each trifle with granadilla pulp and a maraschino cherry. Serve and enjoy.

    Tips and variations:

    • If you’d like to try other flavour combinations, use Rhodes Pear with raspberry jelly or Rhodes Peach with mango jelly instead of the fruit cocktail to create a two-in-one fruit and jelly delight.
