    Heydarl's Note:

    I just found this in New Idea magazine & didn't want to lose the recipe. Looks nice & easy, but end result looks great. Best to make this in a clear glass bowl to impress everyone.

      My family are huge trifle lovers and DS was a bit suspicious of the variation but was soon persuaded to try it & had seconds! I left out the sugar as I think there is plenty of sweetnes already in the cake, custard & jellies. I used blackcurrant jelly instead of raspberry as the shop had sold out - but I did use the mango! Also I omitted the malibu & used a coconut & pineapple juice instead. I am looking forward to making this again as it is a lovely alternative to 'traditional' trifle. Reviewed for Au/NZ Recipe Tag #14. Thanks again Heydarl for another great recipe :)
