Strawberry trifle cake is the ultimate no bake cake for summer, made by layering ready-made flan cases with white chocolate, cream and berries
Watch how to make Strawberry trifle cake
- 2 large flan cases (we used Edlers)
- 120g white chocolate, melted
- 1 pack strawberry jelly
- 150g strawberries, halved
- 1x120g pot ready-made custard
- 600ml double cream, whipped to soft peaks
- a handful each strawberries and raspberries, to decorate
Put one flan case on a plate to create a base. Cut out the centre of the second flan case so you are left with just the rim, then stack on top of the base. Pour the white chocolate inside and spread with a pastry brush, making sure the inner borders are also well covered to avoid leaking. Put in the fridge to set.
Meanwhile, prepare the jelly in a jug, according to packet instructions and leave it to semi-set. Put the strawberries on the flan base and pour over the jelly. Place the cake in the fridge until the jelly is set.
In a small bowl, stir half the cream into the custard and spoon over the jelly layer. Using a large spoon, dollop the remaining cream onto the custard layer and decorate with strawberries and raspberries.
