Trifle is a popular, much loved dessert in South Africa. It is simply delicious. It is made with layers of cake custard, jelly, fruit & nuts. Do try it. Here is the vegetarian version of trifle. The cake is egg-less and the jelly does not contain gelatin which is a meat product.
I used kiwi fruit to top this trifle. However be aware that fruits containing acid, tend to affect the flavor of the cream. If it will be eaten right away it is fine to use such fruit otherwise use, berries, peaches or bananas to top this dessert.
