  • A Trifle About What Kids Say

    Anneka loves a triffle and you weren't shy with sharing the things you love - and hate - about trifles.

    Joy Everall emailled said she likes a tropical ginger trifle while Janet texted in saying she likes a good slug of Madeira in hers!

    Anneka spoke to Wendy in Basingstoke who's 4-year-old daugther said 'Mummy, someone's stolen the comfy bit of your pants' when she saw her in a thong for the first time!

    And then Anneka chatted to Annie who's young son Alex invented the word "sprankles" to describe the marks socks leave on legs!


    And just in case you've never tried trifle (is such a thing possible??), then Janet Everall in West Yorkshire sent Anneka her recipe:

    8 trifle sponges
    3 tablespoons greengage jam
    12 – 16 oz white grapes
    5oz Schloer grape juice
    2 oz caster sugar
    2 whipped egg whites
    4 teaspoons lemon juice
    2 tablespoons brandy
    ½ pint of double cream – lightly whipped
    Tiny meringues to decorate (optional)

    Cut sponges in half lengthways, spread both slices with jam and sandwich together – arrange in 3 pint serving dish.
    Halve most of grapes and arrange over sponges.
    Whisk egg whites until stiff, then fold in rest of ingredients and the half whipped cream.
    Pour over fruit and sponge, cover and leave to chill for several hours.
    Before serving, decorate with grape halves and tiny meringues.

    Serves 6 - 8
    Not suitable for freezing.
