An Alternative use for the Wine Glass

With some leftover Madeira sponge cake, Greek yoghurt and soft fruit in the kitchen, I decided to make these individual trifles. Served in wine glasses, I think they look rather fancy!

Why not try your own variation on a traditional trifle? Plus it’s lower in calories without all the custard and cream (see previous post on a sherry trifle)

Ingredients (makes 3)
½ Madeira sponge cake (almost any cake will work! I’ve used Panettone before)
3 tbsp liqueur such as Grand Marnier, sherry, or Baileys (your choice)
120g soft fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries
6tbsp Greek (or natural yoghurt)
1 tsp hot chocolate powder for decorating

1. Place 1cm thick cake slices in the base of each wine glass
2. Drizzle over 1tbsp of liqueur in each
3. Layer 40g soft fruit on top
4. Pour 2tbsp yoghurt in each glass
5. Decorate with a scattering of hot chocolate powder

  1. Which only leaves the question – when your wine glasses are full of trifle, from what do you drink your wine?
