Authentic English Trifle

Ingredients
  • First, make a soft, rich custard: beat 4 egg yolks until light and
  • pale yellow. Heat 2 cups light cream with 1/4 cup sugar and 1
  • tablespoon orange flower water or vanilla. add beaten egg yolks,
  • while beating very hard. Then cook without boiling, stirring
  • continuously until custard coats the spoon. Remove to a bowl. Cover
  • and refrigerate until well chilled. Cut a two-layer sponge cake
  • (that you bake or buy) into finger-length pieces. Spread each one
  • on one side with raspberry jam and quickly dip in 1/2 cup sherry.
Instructions

Place half these sponge fingers in the bottom of a deep cut-glass bowl. Cover with half the custard. Whip 2 cups cream. sweeten with 1/2 cup icing sugar and vanilla to taste. Cover custard with half the whipped cream. Make a second layer on top of all this. Top with a dozen or so toasted almonds, standing them upright in the cream, add a few slivers of angelica - or use small roses instead of almonds and angelica. Refrigerate at least 12 hours.
