Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

1 Pound(s) Madeira cake
4 Ounce(s) Macaroons
2 Tablespoon(s) Brandy
2 Tablespoon(s) Madeira
1 Pint(s) Milk
6 Egg yolks
2 Ounce(s) Vanilla Sugar
1 Orange, zest of
8 Ounce(s) raspberries
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 Pint(s) Double cream
1/2 Pint(s) Sweet White Wine
Sugar to taste
Lavender, rosebuds or lemon
zest to decorate
Make a custard by heating the milk with the orange zest. Beat the egg
yolks with the sugar and, when the milk is at scalding point, add it
to the egg yolks. Mix well and return to the pan. Heat very gently
until thickened - DO NOT BOIL! Sprinkle with the sugar to prevent a
skin from forming. Put half the sliced cake at the bottom of your
serving dish and pour over the Madeira. Put the raspberries on top,
then the macaroons, then the cooled custard. Now add the rest of the
cake. Make the syllabub by soaking the lemon rind in the juice for 2
hours. Add to the wine. Loosely whip the cream and add the wine and
lemon to it. Add sugar to taste, then pour on top of the trifle and
decorate as you like. DISCLAIMER© Copyright 1996 - SelecTV Cable
