English Trifle

One of the number one reasons I love Christmas is English Trifle. My mom has made this dessert almost every Christmas that I can remember. And now I pass on that tradition to my family. The best thing about trifle is my favorite things are combined, raspberries, custard and whipping cream. I can eat homemade whipped cream on anything! So I was searching for an actual recipe to share since I just make mine off the top of my head and found this perfect one from the BBC. It's basically the exact same recipe as mine. It calls for sherry on the cake but I've also used raspberry liqueur which is just as good. You should really try this treat and maybe it will become your next holiday tradition. And since I don't have any pictures of the trifle, since it's yet to be made, I've included a nice wintery photo taken by my husband to get everyone into the holiday spirit.
