Mango Trifle




Mango Trifle ~ a light and refreshing dessert to round up a sumptuous X'mas dinner.  Basically, there's no recipe for this, no hard and fast rule, you just load on what you have at hand, layer by layer, sponge cake or any leftover cake, custard, jam, fruits, whipped cream, whatever you can think of.  Drench it with more alcohol if you want to be intoxicated during this festive season! 









I made this in small dessert cups so there's no excuse to refuse such a colourful and delightful dessert!  You won't say 'No' to this, would you??

Recipe for Mango Trifle

Ingredients
  • Sponge cake, cut to small pieces or trim to the shape of  the base of the cup
  • Mango, diced into cubes
  • Jam of your choice
  • 1  Tbsp Cointreau or more if desired
  • 150 ml plain yoghurt +  2 tsp honey, mix well
  • 40 gm custard powder +  1 cup water  +  4 tsp sugar, cook and keep stirring under low flame till thick
To assemble trifle   (Made 6 ~ 2.1/4 x 2 inch round dessert cups)

Place sponge cake into the cup, spread a layer of  jam on top of the cake.  Arrange a layer of mango cubes on top of the jam.  Drizzle in Cointreau.  Spread a layer of custard on top of the jam, add in yoghurt mixture.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
