So I said yesterday that today’s post would be for when things go wrong. Which they did on Tuesday. I was making the lemon sponges and I don’t think I greased the pan enough and only 4 came out whole. I know things go wrong and I bet that even Mary Berry has bad days but you kind of feel like you’ve failed a bit. ell I do anyway. However an idea came along.
I decided to put the lemon sponge to good use and make a cheats trifle. I still had some left over ingredients from yesterday’s post so I made these and man they are good!
All you need is:
sponge cake, crumbled
double cream, whipped
To assemble your cheats trifle. Place the sponge cake into the bottom of the dish, add some of the strawberries saving enough for the top. Pile on the cream and add the remaining strawberries.
Finish with a dusting of icing sugar (everything looks better with icing sugar). And serve. These will keep chilled for the rest of the day. So feel free to make ahead.
It’s great to put use to something that would have been binned. A great way to use up leftover ingredients too! And boy do they taste good!
