Happy New Year everyone !!
I feel terrible that it’s been more than a month since my last blog. So I thought I’d start the new year with this amazing vegan dessert. I didn’t make it but it was made by my better half – Mrs Vegan Animal. I’m not a fan of fruit in desserts but this was absolutely amazing and it tastes as good as it looks. I’ve never had trifle before in my life and had no idea how this was going to turn out but this was made on xmas day and the rest of the family (non-vegans) loved it too.
1 packet of vegan raspberry flavoured jelly
660 ml raspberry or cranberry juice
230 g plain sponge cake broken into large chunks (we used the Vanilla Cake from How it All Vegan)
2 tablespoons orange flavoured liquer (we used brandy)
500g strawberries, hulled, sliced thinly
125 g raspberries
125 g blueberries
For the custard cream :
300 ml thick vegan cream, whipped
600 ml ready made thick vegan custard
1. Make the jelly in a large 2.5 litre capacity glass serving bowl and refrigerate until set
2. For the custard cream, whisk the cream until soft peaks form. Fold through the custard until just combined
3. Drizzle the sponge pieces with the liquer and arrange over the jelly. Top with half the strawberries and then the custard cream.
4. Top with the remaining strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
5. Serve chilled
