We here at Gate promised you some recipes for the food and drink items in a previous wordsearch. Most English people buy sausages (bangers), marmalade (jam made from oranges) tea (in teabags), bacon(usually sliced), and custard (a sauce for puddings), from a supermarket. Here is a recipe for a trifle (a dessert) but not a traditional one, which calls for thick cold custard!
Sponge fingers (long thin thick biscuits)
Tinned fruit (such as peaches or mandarins)-
Packet of jelly (any flavour you like)
Optional decoration eg glace cherries, chocolate drops, fruit
Layer the sponge fingers in a glass dish. (We often stick them together with jam.) Pour over the fruit juice from the tinned fruit and stand so the biscuits soak up the juice. Layer the fruit on the biscuits. Make up the jelly and when it is nearly set, pour over the fruit. Allow to set firm. Whip the cream till it is how you like it. (We often put a teaspoon of sugar in it) Spread it over the jelly and then decorate your trifle – or just leave it as it is. Keep in the fridge.
