Raspberry & Rose trifle recipe

Raspberry & Rose trifles

A delightful summer dessert recipe


2 cubes rose flavoured Turkish delight
500g good-quality vanilla custard
½ a 350g/12oz bought Madeira loaf
300g pack Raspberries
juice 1 orange
200ml tub fresh cream (use reduced-fat if you like)
handful pistachios, roughly chopped


Snip the Turkish delight into pieces with kitchen scissors into a large bowl and add a few tablespoons of water. Microwave on High for 1 min, stirring after 30 secs, or until dissolved and smooth. Tip in the custard and stir together.

Break the cake into rough chunks and divide between 6 sundae dishes or serving glasses. Mix half of the raspberries with the orange juice in a bowl and crush gently with a fork to break the fruit up slightly. Spoon over the cake layer. Cover with the custard, then leave to cool in the fridge for at least 30 mins. Can be made up to 1 day ahead. To serve, top the trifles with a dollop of crème fraîche, the remaining raspberries and a sprinkling of pistachios.
