Black Forest Trifle

This trifle couldn't be easier or quicker to make. I made it with Black Forest fruits, but it would also work well with any summer fruits and berries such as blackberries, raspberries, blackcurrants etc. Nigel Slater made something similar on his show this week and that's where the idea came from.

You need:

1 x Cherry Madeira Cake - Shop bought for ease. Make your own if you prefer
500g Black Forest Fruits (or summer fruits) - frozen or hand picked if in season.
1 Pint Custard - Shop bought for ease. Make your own if you prefer

Defrost the fruits/berries if using frozen, then gently heat in a saucepan until the berries burst and release their juice. Cook gently for 3 or 4 minutes until the fruits soften, but still holds it's shape. Set aside to cool

Slice the Madeira cake into 1cm thick slices and divide evenly between the serving plates. Pour the juice from the fruits over the cake slices and then pile the softened fruit on top. Pour/drizzle the custard on top of the cake and fruit.

That's it. Feeds 4
