The perfect dish for a spring wedding

Serves: 10-12   Prep time: 30 minutes

You’ll need

  • 1kg Berries (strawberries, raspberries & blueberries)
  • 30g Icing Sugar
  • 8 Madeleines cakes, shop bought is fine
  • 3 tbsp Marsala Wine (optional)
  • 700g ready-made custard
  • 200g mascarpone
  • 400ml double cream
  • Extra raspberries, strawberries and blueberries to decorate

What to do

Hull and chop any large strawberries and put into a bowl with raspberries and blueberries, sprinkle over the icing sugar and give everything a gentle mash with a fork. Set aside to macerate.

Lay the Madeleines in the bottom of a large trifle bowl, spread out to fill the gaps as much as possible. Drizzle over the Marsala wine if using. Once the berries look juicy, spoon half of them, with their juice, over the cake and leave to soak in.

Whip together the custard and mascarpone until smooth and spoon half over the berries spreading to the edges. Spoon over the rest of the berries then top with the remaining custard.

Whip the cream to soft peaks and spoon 2/3 over the trifle and level.
