Gather the Ingredients for your Trifle Recipe.
Before mixing and layering, gather all the ingredients for your trifle recipe – including gin, lemon curd (homemade or store-bought), sponge cake, double cream and sugar. Once you have all your ingredients on hand, you can start assembling this delightful dessert.
Make the Simple Syrup with LemonTop Gin.
To make the simple syrup, combine 1/2 cup of LemonTop Gin and 1/4 cup of sugar in a small saucepan. Boil over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved, stirring occasionally. Once you have your simple syrup ready, set it aside to cool.
Assemble Your Jubilee Trifle.
Begin assembling your trifle by filling the bowl with one layer of pound cake. Drizzle it with half of the cooled LemonTop Gin simple syrup. Top that with a thin layer of raspberry jam, followed by a new cake layer. Drizzle on the remaining syrup and top it off with a generous dusting of icing sugar to get the perfect Jubilee Trifle.
Refrigerate until Ready to Serve.
When the Jubilee Trifle has finished assembling, cover it with plastic wrap and place it in a cool spot in your fridge. Let the trifle refrigerate for at least an hour before serving to allow all of the flavours and ingredients to blend together for maximum flavour. Enjoy!
Garnish and Enjoy!
Before serving, take the trifle out of the fridge and garnish with more candy or jellies, if desired. An edible flower also makes an excellent garnish for a special occasion. Slice some fresh strawberries for a delicious topping! Serve and enjoy this delightful trifle – it’s sure to please guests of all ages.
