We are fascinated by delicious flavors and the story behind decadent yet straightforward recipes. It sure can stimulate your creativity with the endless number of potentially intriguing variants for a dish so simple and uncomplicated.

Trifle means something whimsical or of little consequence. A proper English trifle is made with real egg custard poured over sponge cake soaked in fruit and sherry and topped with whipped cream. https://whatscookingamerica.net/history/cakes/trifle.htm

Concepts sometimes wake up the old energies of past chefs' lives reincarnated through your fingers and imagination in search of the ingredients as well as wet the appetite of intriguing commensals.

The traditional version of Trifle that originated in England in the 18th century (with less similar dishes being made even earlier) consisted of three or four layers, including some sort of fruit, alcohol-soaked sponge cake, and custard. The fruit and cake were often layered with homemade jelly.

Recipes for Trifles date as far back as the 1590s. Trifles are often made at home, particularly at Christmas. They are light, simple affairs (hence their name). Owing to their alcohol content, they are also sometimes known as "tipsy cakes."

P.S… And if you are a fan of "Friends," this scene where Rachel makes the Trifle just came to my mind because a little bit of humor is always good.
