Orange and Blackberry Trifle

  • Preparation Time20 mins
  • Serves4
  • DifficultyEasy
350g marmalade pudding cake
80ml Cointreau or other orange liqueur
Zest and juice 1 orange or 2 clementines (approx. 100ml)
250ml double cream
300g blackberries (or blueberries if blackberries can’t be found)

Cut the cake into slices and arrange on a plate or wide, shallow dish. Drizzle with the orange liqueur.

Zest the orange or clementines into a bowl and leave the zest to one side. Then squeeze the juice from the orange or clementines, pouring this over the liqueur-soaked cake.

Whip the cream until thick but softly so, and spoon unfancily over the top of the saturated, not to say gloriously sodden, cake.

Arrange the blackberries over the top of the whipped cream, then scatter with the reserved zest.
