One of the puddings I did for us over our delayed Christmas, was Black Forest Trifle. Personally I prefer jelly in a trifle and next time we do this, we all agreed it needed some to hold the soaked sponge together.
We bought a cheap chocolate cake (I ran out of time to bake one), sliced it and after putting it on the bottom of the dish, added some of our home made Damson vodka and some juice from a jar of Aldi pitted cherries:
The jar of pitted cherries had been drained and gave 1/2 pint of juice only a few tablespoons of which went on the chocolate cake base.
The rest was added to normal raspberry jelly to give FDiL some pudding with ice cream as she is not keen on trifle. It gave it a wonderful flavour but again, forgot to take a picture.
Finally, ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you whether eating out or in, if anything is wrong, it will be mine. I'm the one that gets a rare bone in fish fingers/cakes, whose meal is under done etc. On this occasion, I was the only one to get a pip, on three separate occasions - weird isn't it!
Have a lovely weekend everyone and keep safe in the next batch of rain, wind, sleet and snow.
