Red Velvet Trifles

Ingredients to make Red Velvet Trifles

  • 1 small ~ 100 gm unfrosted cake (I used Red Velvet)
  • 4-6 tbsps ~ 120 ml custard
  • 3/4 cup ~150 gms seasonal fruit of choice (I used strawberries and pomegranates)
  • 2 tbsps ~ 25 gms nuts of choice (I used pistachios) to garnish
  • 1 tbsp ~ 15 gms granulated sugar to macerate the fruits

How to make Red Velvet Trifles

  1. Start by finely chopping up the fruits you will be using, transfer them into a bowl, sprinkle with 1 tbsp of sugar and keep aside.
  2. To assemble the Trifles- Begin by lining the base of each glass with a cut out piece of cake, top with the syrup from the macerated fruits, now add a layer of custard followed by a layer of fruits,
  3. Repeat the process till you reach the top of your glasses.
  4. Now garnish with chopped nuts. Refrigerate overnight. Serve cool.

My Tip:

*For the Red Velvet Cake: 1/4 cup Flour 1/4 cup granulated Sugar 1/8 tsp Baking Soda 1 small Egg 2 tbsp liquid red food colour 1/4 cup Milk 3/4 tbsp Vinegar 1/8 tsp Salt 2 tbsp Oil 2- 3 drops vanilla essence *To make a small Red Velvet cake: -In a bowl combine milk, vinegar, sugar, oil and the egg, whisk well until the sugar dissolves and keep aside. -Once the sugar has dissolved add in all the dry ingredients along with vanilla essence and red liquid food colouring. -Mix well to combine. -Bake in a preheated oven for 20 mins at 180 degrees C ~ 356 degrees F -Once the cake has cooled completely, cut out hearts or circles that are slightly smaller than your serving glasses and keep aside.
