Making it healthier
A serving of classic trifle contains 713 calories, 53g fat (28g saturated) and 34g sugar. Angela made a fat-free sponge for the base, reduced the egg yolks in the custard and replaced cream with half-fat crème fraîche. Used light mascarpone and Greek yogurt for the topping instead of cream. Used less sugar in the overall recipe, and replace sweetened jam with pure jam with no added sugar.
The custard, cake and fruit layers can be made a day ahead ready for assembling.
