SOUTH AFRICAN TRIFLE RECIPE

SOUTH AFRICAN TRIFLE RECIPE

It’s the season of no-guilt eating, so South Africans may indulge in dessert after a large meal just like the rest of the world. There is one sweet where there are numerous different recipes and heated debates about which is the “real” trifle. Each of the many layers of this towering dish consists of biscuits, jelly, and custard. We’ve taken the classic dessert trifle and given it a South African spin by adding Amarula cream liqueur.

SOUTH AFRICAN TRIFLE TIPS

If you make this dish, be sure to use a tall, deep bowl to accommodate the stacked layers. You may also soak the ladyfinger or cat’s tongue cookies in brandy or sherry, but the Amarula’s smoothness goes especially well with them. While homemade custard has the advantage of being produced with ease, the store-bought kind is a crowd-pleaser and keeps its form better. You may customise your trifle in any way you choose, from the height of the layers to the flavours of fruit and jelly you use.

You should finish your holiday meal with a classic dessert. You and your family will love this South African version of the classic trifle because of its fruity, creamy, and layered sweet flavor combinations.
