Ginger and rhubarb trifle

© Very Lazy


  • 4 slices Madeira or sponge cake
  • 2 large (or 4 small) stalks of rhubarb, cut into 5 cm chunks
  • 5 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 4 tablespoons extra thick double cream
  • 8 tablespoons ready to use custard
  • 2 teaspoons Very Lazy Ginger paste


1 To make the roasted rhubarb, place the rhubarb chunks on a roasting tray and drizzle with 150ml of water and the caster sugar.

2 Place on a baking sheet lined with non-stick paper and roast for 15 minutes, or until just soft but still holding its shape. Leave to cool down completely.

3 Make the cream by tipping the cream, custard and ginger paste into a bowl and mix well.

4 To assemble the puddings, divide the cake between some elegant glasses. Top with some of the rhubarb and its syrup and finally the custard mixture. Finish with a sprinkle of toasted flaked almonds, if desired.
