• Method

Firstly make the Crunchy Oat Topping:

  1. Preheat the oven to 150C/130Fan/Gas 2.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan then add the sugar cooking gently for 2 – 3 minutes.  Remove from the heat then stir in the oats and nuts and mix thoroughly.
  3. Spread the mix evenly over a baking tray then bake for around 10 minutes – check it to make sure it doesn’t brown too much.
  4. Set aside to cool completely before using. You can do this in advance and store in an airtight tin.

For the Trifle:

  1. Line the bottom of your trifle bowl with the sponge fingers, then pour over the gin or lemon juice.
  2. Scatter the brambles over the sponge fingers and leave for about an hour to allow the juices from the Brambles to ooze onto the sponge.
  3. If you are making homemade vanilla custard, make this now and set aside to cool.
  4. Pour the custard over the top of the brambles.
  5. Stir the crème fraiche then spread over the custard. It will be runny but will thicken up when covered with cling film and placed in the fridge. The sharpness of the crème fraiche works well with the sweetness of the custard and the topping. As an alternative you can use lightly whipped double cream.
  6. Just before serving sprinkle the crunchy oat topping over the top.
