There are few desserts as simple, and yet as satisfying as a trifle. It can be whipped together in just a few minutes, but is a perfectly elegant centrepiece for any holiday dessert table. Best of all, you can adapt it to any dietary restriction or preference, whether it’s gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, or wholly raw.
When it comes to putting together a trifle, the sky is the limit. The classic arrangement is layers of alcohol-laced pound cake or ladyfinger biscuits alternating with layers of vanilla pudding, mixed berries or sliced fruit, and topped with whipped cream, but honestly? Make it your own!
Whip up some vegan coconut cream and alternate that with layers of peach slices and ginger cookies, or alternate layers of wafers with chocolate pudding, nuts, and malted chocolate balls.
