  • Preparation Time30 mins

  • DifficultyMedium
450ml hot water, for the gelatine
1 large (170g) pack raspberry gelatine
450ml cold water, for the gelatine
450g fresh raspberries, washed
12 ladyfingers
60ml sherry
180g sweetened dessicated coconut
900g prepared vanilla pudding (most markets will sell pudding in the deli or dairy section)
450ml double cream
60g bittersweet chocolate, shaved
Glace cherries, optional, for garnish
1) In a medium saucepan have 450ml of water boiling. Place gelatin into a medium heat-proof bowl or large heat-proof measuring cup. Pour the hot water over the gelatine. Stir to make sure it dissolves. Add 450ml of cold water to the gelatin. Place the raspberries in the bottom of a 2L trifle bowl. Pour the gelatin over the raspberries and place it in the refrigerator to set completely, about 4 hrs.

2) Once the jelly is set, soak the ladyfingers in a baking dish with the sherry, coating both sides until saturated but still firm. Lay a row of ladyfingers over the top of the gelatine. Stir the coconut into the pudding and layer it over the ladyfingers. Whip the cream until stiff then carefully smear on top of the pudding. Decorate with chocolate shavings and cherries. Serve right away or keep refrigerated until ready to eat.
