    Serves: 8 

    • 2 bananas, sliced
    • 4 tbsp orange juice
    • 1 (450g) packet sponge or madeira cake
    • 4 tbsp Cointreau
    • 1 (500g) carton vanilla custard
    • 1 (85g) packet raspberry jelly crystals
    • 2 (250g) small containers strawberries, hulled and quartered
    • 1 (125g) small container blueberries

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:5hr  ›  Ready in:5hr15min 

    1. Make the jelly beforehand, according to packet directions, and chill till set.
    2. Combine bananas with orange juice (this will help stop the banana from going brown).
    3. Arrange the madeira or sponge cake in the base of a serving bowl to form an even layer, cutting to size if necessary. Sprinkle the sponge with half the Cointreau.
    4. Pour half the vanilla custard evenly over the sponge.
    5. Layer with half the jelly, then half the bananas, strawberries and blueberries in the bowl. Repeat these layers starting with another layer of sponge, then cover and chill until serving.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Fresh mangoes, passionfruit, strawberries, pineapple; a sponge from Coles, Aeroplane Jelly-red and some commercial vanilla custard. Easy and excellent!!  -  25 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    This is a great trifle so easy to make. I added raspberries instead of strawberries, added a little meringue crumbled over the fruit, used 2 cartons of custard instead of one. Also used Apricot brandy instead of Cointreau because it is much cheaper.  -  25 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
