Unveil the layers of joy with this Strawberry Trifle πŸ“βœ¨


For the strawberry layers:

4 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup homemade strawberry jam

For the whipped cream:

3 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
For the crumbs:

1 cup graham cracker crumbs or your choice of sweet biscuit crumbs

For the custard:

6 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
3 cups whole milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the garnish:

Fresh strawberries, halved
Additional graham cracker crumbs
Cinnamon powder


Prepare the custard: In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks with sugar until smooth and creamy. In a saucepan, heat the milk until hot but not boiling, then gradually whisk it into the egg mixture. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until the custard thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla extract, and let cool to room temperature. Once cool, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator.

Whip the cream: In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream with powdered sugar and vanilla extract until it forms soft peaks. Be careful not to overbeat. Refrigerate until needed.

Assemble the trifle: In a clear trifle bowl, create a layer of sliced strawberries. Over the strawberries, evenly spread the homemade strawberry jam.

Add the first layer of whipped cream: Gently spread half of the whipped cream over the strawberry jam layer.

Sprinkle the crumbs: Carefully distribute the graham cracker crumbs over the whipped cream layer.

Layer the custard: Spoon the chilled custard over the crumbs, spreading evenly.

Add the second layer of whipped cream: Spread the remaining whipped cream over the custard.

Garnish: Arrange halved strawberries on top for decoration. Sprinkle with additional graham cracker crumbs and dust lightly with cinnamon powder for a hint of spice.

Chill: Allow the trifle to set in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours before serving. This lets the flavors meld together and ensures a firm layering.

Serve this sumptuous trifle chilled, diving into layers of luscious strawberries, sweet jam, velvety custard, and light, airy whipped cream, all accented with the crunch of crumbs and the warm spice of cinnamon. It’s a dessert that’s as delightful to look at as it is to eat!
