30 Minute Strawberry Trifle

A 30 minute recipe including the cleaning up!

Recipe credit: Abu Aa’ishah


  • 600g Madeira cake / sponge cake / Swiss roll cake (or according to preference)
  • 1 jar strawberry jam (optional)
  • 800g strawberries
  • 2-3 tbsps sugar
  • 800g custard (we used ambrosia devan custard)
  • 600ml double cream


  1. Recite Bismillah
  2. Cube or slice 500g of the strawberries.
  3. Add the sugar to the strawberries & set aside. This will help the juice from the fruit to release.
  4. In a separate bowl add the cream & sugar to taste. Mix by hand till you get the sweetness you want. Then whip till thick & creamy. It should not be fluffy. ( Add sugar before whipping up as you don’t want to add the sugar later & mix as this may over whip the cream).
  5. In a large trifle bowl lay slices of half the amount of cake.
  6. Spread jam on top of the cake layer (optional).
  7. Then place half the strawberries on top of the cake/jam.
  8. Next pour half the custard.
  9. Then pour half the whipped cream.
  10. Repeat these layers again.
  11. Decorate with the remaining strawberries & drizzle chocolate / grate chocolate. Allow to chill for a few hours. Enjoy!

Note: This recipe is for a large trifle bowl, if you are using a small trifle bowl you may want to half the quantities.
