Individual Strawberry Trifle

Individual Strawberry trifle served in a wine glass with a blue background.
These Individual Strawberry Trifles are decadent, rich and oh so delicious. Sherry soaked sponge, sweet strawberry compote, creamy vanilla custard all topped with a pillow of whipped cream. All served as an individual serving! Who could resist that?

Strawberry Trifles served in stemless wine glasses.

These Individual Strawberry Trifles are a great way to serve trifle.

So often trifle bowls are large and designed to serve at least 8-10 people. Perfect if you are serving a crowd, but if you just have 4 for dinner, you either have to serve double portions or eat trifle for breakfast the following morning.

(Shush!!! It has been known to happen in our house 😉 )

But with these individual strawberry trifles you have a beautiful pre-portioned, prepare ahead dessert for your next dinner party.

What is more, if you are serving kids (or people who can’t/don’t drink alcohol) you can easily prepare one or more using fruit juice rather than sweet sherry.

I like to use sweet sherry here as the cake soaks everything up and a dry sherry just doesn’t taste as nice. If you only have dry sherry at home then a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar mixed through it can make all the difference to this dessert.

For the custard layer in these individual trifles, I use my Easy, Made from Scratch Custard. It is simple to make at home, but a good thick store bought custard will work just as well.

With the sponge, a store bought vanilla sponge is perfect here.
