Here is a trifle recipe for the Passover / Pesach festival. Trifle recipes can have ingredients that are quite high in fat, but the following trifle recipe is a low-fat version to save your waistline from potential over-expansion.
What exactly is a trifle, you may ask? A trifle is a deep-dish British dessert of many varieties, typically including plain or sponge cake, sweet sherry or madeira, rum or brandy, port, jam or jelly/jello, fruit, thick custard, and whipped cream. There are some trifles that do not use alcohol in them, but they use another beverage such as fruit juice, because the liquid is necessary in order to moisten the cake. Some trifles include jelly rolls and/or nuts as part of their components. The topping of the trifle usually consists of custard, fruits, and whipped cream. Although a trifle sounds like a dietary disaster - on top of being potentially tipsy - the following trifle recipe is a no-cholesterol and low-fat version to help rescue your waistline from taking up more airspace.
