  • 1 small sponge cake
  • 3 tbsp Strawberry jam
  • 2 cups custard
  • 200 g fresh strawberries
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 6 tbsp sweet sherry - see note 1
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • icing sugar - for dusting


  • Cut the cake in half and use the jam to sandwich the slices together.
  • Use a cookie cutter to cut 4 circles out of the cake and place them into 4 glasses. Cut the remaining cake up and fill the gaps.
  • Spoon a tablespoon and a half of sherry into each glass.
  • Reserve 4 strawberries and then hull the remaining strawberries and cut them into quarters.
  • Divide the cut strawberries amongst the trifles.
  • Sprinkle over the lemon zest over the strawberries.
  • Spoon over the custard.
  • Pour the whipping cream into a bowl and whisk until it forms soft peaks.
  • Spoon this over the custard and garnish with a cut strawberry and a dusting of icing sugar.


  1. If you haven't got sweet sherry dissolve a tablespoon or two of brown sugar into your dry sherry. Alternatively use sweetened apple juice if you wish to make these alcohol free.
