Toffee Apple Trifle recipe

This trifle is full of the flavours of Autumn, making it a great alternative to other sweet treats at Halloween time.

Ingredients:

  • 750g dessert apples
  • 100g dark brown sugar
  • Toffee sauce (made by heating together 120g butter, 120g sugar and 100ml cream for ten minutes until bubbling and smooth)
  • 20 sponge fingers (packet, or make your own)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 500ml custard (packet, or make your own)
  • 250ml whipping cream
  • 100g pecans
  • 2 tbsp. butter

Method of Preparation:

  1. Peel, core and thinly slice the dessert apples.

  2. Roughly chop the pecans and whip the cream.

  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the prepared apples. When they start to become tender, add the cinnamon and the brown sugar. Cook for a further five minutes or so and then take the apples from the heat and allow them to cool.

  4. Meanwhile, arrange 1/3 of the sponge fingers in a serving dish. Spoon 1/3 of the apples over the top, including the juices, then 1/3 of the toffee sauce, 1/3 of the custard, and 1/3 of the cream.

  5. Repeat the process, ending with a layer of whipped cream.

  6. Garnish with the pecans.

  7. Chill the trifle for around 2 hours before serving.
