‘This trifle recipe came from my mum and it’s really good for parties. Blueberries are full of vitamins and antioxidants, which make up for the high calories!’

Ingredients

  • 900g (2lb) blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 50g (2oz) caster sugar
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • 130g lemon sponge, cut into cubes
  • 340g jar lemon curd (use supermarket basic range)
  • 450ml (3/4 pt) whipping cream
  • 18 Amaretti biscuits crushed

Method

  • Place blueberries in a saucepan with sugar and lemon juice and cook over low heat until sugar dissolves and berries release juice, remove from heat and cool.

  • Cut the sponge into cubes and place in serving bowl.

  • Pour the blueberries over the sponge, keeping two tbsp back for decoration.

  • Put lemon curd in a bowl and stir in the cream, it should thicken almost immediately. Pour over the sponge and blueberries, then chill (you can prepare this the day before).

  • Before serving sprinkle over Amaretti biscuits and the remaining blueberries.
