Extraordinary Banana Trifle

INGREDIENTS (Makes 8 servings, for more make another trifle!)
500ml Baileys (Aldi do something similar for less money)
4 medium Bananas
160g Butterscotch toffee (Werthers Originals are great for this!)
8 Slices Banana loaf, chocolate cake or similar
50g Dark Chocolate (grated or curls)
240ml of Double Cream
1 teaspoon of finely ground Espresso Coffee
A sprinkle of Icing Sugar


Put toffees into a small saucepan with 8 tablespoons of Baileys. Stir over a gentle heat until the toffees melt into the liqueur (without letting it boil) to forma sticky sauce. Leave to cool.

Crumble the cake into the bottom of the bowl and lightly press crumbs with fingers to firm them down. Then pour 4 tablespoons of Baileys over the crumbs.

Peel and thinly slice the bananas and spread evenly over the cake layer. Spoon the toffee sauce over the sliced banana.

Add 8 more tablespoons of Baileys and a teaspoon of ground coffee to the double-cream and whip until it forms soft peaks. Add some sieved icing sugar to taste. (Now drink any Baileys that is left over!!)

Top the trifle with spoonfuls of the cream and sprinkle on grated or curls of chocolate. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.

  1. Ruby and I have just made this and it didn't even last the 30 minutes cooling time. Very delicious! You could use coffee if you want an alcohol free version, or more sugar syrup...
