For Christmas lunch, I was in charge of a couple of puddings including the Trifle (yes, capital T is required!) It's a Nigel Slater recipe that Ma had seen on TV a couple of nights before, which caused me to rush along to the supermarket to buy some physalis as other people would have seen the programme too and now they might sell out!!
It's Mincemeat Trifle and, though it took some time to prepare, it was enjoyable to make and those who tasted it liked it very much. It had a mincemeat and orange sponge base, custard, orange and lemon curd, topped with whipped cream, physalis, chopped pistachios and orange zest. I was very proud, quite a spectacle to behold!
