    Here's one of my favourites - an apricot trifle:

    1 small can of apricots (I think canned fruit always tastes better in trifles)
    I orange flavoured jelly
    4 small sponge cakes
    A little apricot jam
    50g chopped almonds
    50g chopped glacé cherries
    2 1/2 level tablespoons of custard powder (I always have to go to the English Shop to get that)
    426ml milk
    50g sugar
    Whipping cream

    Drain and chop the apricots. Make the juice up to 1/2 litre with water and use to make the jelly. Split the sponges in half and spread with the apricot jam. Put into a serving dish, and cover with chopped almonds, apricots and cherries (reserve 1 cherry for decoration). Pour on jelly and allow to set. Make the custard with the powder, milk and sugar. Allow to cool, whisking from time to time to prevent a skin from forming. When cold, pour over the jelly. Decorate with whipped cream, angelica and the cherry.
