Fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

100g almond flakes

250ml dairy-free cream, whipped


1. For the custard, cream the egg yolks and sugar together until thick. If the mixture is frothy, continue to beat until it becomes creamy.

2. Heat the milk to boiling point. Remove from the heat and slowly add to the egg mixture while stirring continuously.

3. Pour the mixture into the pot and cook gently over medium heat until it thickens. Stir continuously and don’t let it boil as it will curdle. The custard is cooked when it can coat the back of a spoon. Finally, stir in the vanilla essence and leave the custard to cool completely.

4. To assemble the trifle, cut the sponge fingers in thirds and arrange around the inside of individual glasses or bowls. Drizzle the sherry over the biscuits.

5. Cut up the jelly, then layer it alternately along with the custard, strawberries and almonds. Top with a spoonful of whipped cream.
