This refreshing gluten free, lactose free trifle will be a huge hit at any Christmas dinner. Even though there are a few layers to it, it is relatively easy to make. 

You just need to have some patience as this was made over a few days mainly to make sure everything set and was cooled enough to assemble.

2 x 85 gm packets strawberry jelly
350 gm strawberries

Gluten Free Swiss Roll

The recipe for the Gluten Free Swiss Roll is here.

Lactose Free Custard

750ml lactose free milk
3 whole free range eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla bean extract
2 tablespoons cornflour
1/4 cup caster sugar

Heat milk in a saucepan and bring to almost boiling point, then remove from the heat.
Beat the eggs, sugar and cornflour in a stainless steel mixing bowl until combined.
Pour the hot milk over the eggs and whisk in well.
Pour the egg mixture back into the saucepan and cook over a gentle heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until it thickens and coats the back of the spoon.
Remove from the heat quickly and pour back into the mixing bowl.
Strain through a sieve to get any lumps out. Whisk a little to help cool down then place a layer of cling film over the top making sure to touch the surface of the custard. This is so a skin doesn't form. Allow to cool then place in fridge to go cold.
