Description

When I asked my Facebook community what recipes they'd like for Christmas, trifle was a very popular response.


This trifle is a little different to a traditional one as the cake is not soaked in alcohol or fruit juice, so it's not a soggy cake. A traditional trifle asks for a sweet alcohol to soak the cake which is too high in carbs for keto. If you are wanting an 18+ trifle, you could go for the Scottish version which soaks the cake in whiskey, a more keto friendly alcohol. I'm not a massive fan of soggy cake though so much prefer this version.


The cake recipe used is a delicious vanilla cake. You only need half the cake for the trifle unless you'd like an extra big bowl. I created this recipe a week before moving house so didn't have the time to test a half portion of the cake as well. The cake was a huge hit by itself with my family though so nothing went to waste.


This is best prepared the day or morning before so you have time for the jelly and custard to set and then you can layer the trifle 15 minutes before serving.


You can top with your choice of toppings, but we loved double cream poured on top and fresh low sugar berries. You could also do whipped cream and grated dark chocolate if you like.

Instructions

Conventional Method


Custard

  1. Add all ingredients to a small saucepan.

  2. Over a medium-low heat, whisk until combined well and slightly thick. This will take 5-10 mins.

  3. Place in the fridge to chill and thicken.

Vanilla Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 170°. Line the base of a cake tin and grease the sides with a little butter.

  2. Place the butter in a microwave proof bowl and heat for 30 sec on high. It doesn't have to be completely melted, a mix of melted and soft is fine.

  3. Add cream and vanilla extract and whisk together well.

  4. Continue whisking and crack the eggs in one at a time, combining well.

  5. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. 

  6. Scrape the batter into the prepared cake tin and smooth out the top with a spatula.

  7. Bake for 20 minutes, testing with a cake tester before removing from the oven.

  8. Leave for 5 minutes and then remove from the tin and place on a wire rack to cool completely.

Constructing the Trifle

  1. Cut the vanilla cake in half and put one half aside. Slice the other into smaller pieces. I cut mine approx 3cm long and 1.5cm wide.

  2. Place the cake on the base of a trifle bowl or in the bottom of individual glasses.

  3. Spoon jelly on top of cake.

  4. Pour custard over the top of the jelly.

  5. Top trifle with your choice of toppings.

  6. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes before serving.

  4. Set the Thermomix to mix on sp3 and add the eggs one at a time through the measuring cup hole. Mix for 30 seconds.
