Ingredients

  • 1 x 411g jar mincemeat (made with vegetarian suet)
  • finely grated zest of 1 orange
  • 3 tbsp orange juice
  • 4 tbsp sweet sherry
  • 1 x 295g madeira cake
  • ½ tbsp sweet sherry
  • 1 x 500g tub thick ready-made custard (we used Sainsbury’s fresh custard)
  • 600ml whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp icing sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp flaked almonds, toasted
  • 2 tbsp mixed dried fruit
  • 2-3 crumbled shortbread fingers to serve

Step by step

Get ahead
Make the day before, adding the toppings just before serving
  1. Mix the mincemeat with the finely grated zest of 1 orange and 3 tbsp juice in a small pan and heat gently, just enough to melt the white suet in the mincemeat.
  2. Stir in 4 tbsp sweet sherry and leave to cool. Cut the madeira cake into 2cm cubes and add to the bottom of a medium trifle bowl. Spoon over the cooled mincemeat mixture.
  3. Fold ½ tbsp sweet sherry though the custard and pour over the sponge in the trifle bowl.
  4. Whisk the whipping cream, icing sugar and ½ tsp ground cinnamon together until soft peaks form then spoon over the trifle in big, billowy peaks. Chill until ready to serve.
  5. Add a pinch more ground cinnamon to the top, and scatter with toasted flaked almonds, mixed dried fruit and the crumbled shortbread fingers to serve.
