  1. cut some of the strawberries into small chunks and place in the bottom of six glass tumblers.

  2. Boil a kettle and pour 1/2 cup of boiling water into a measuring jug, add the jelly cubes and stir until completely dissolved, then add 1/2 cup of cold water.

  3. Pour the jelly mixture into the pre-prepared tumblers, filling a quarter full and refrigerate overnight.

  4. Make waffles; mix together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

  5. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg and milk, gradually add to the dry ingredients to avoid lumps

  6. When all the egg and milk mixture has been used up add the oil and mix again, don’t over mix as you want light waffles.

  7. preheat and prepare your waffle maker in accordance with its instructions.

  8. Pour the necessary amount of mixture into the waffle maker and cook for three to four minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

  9. Leave to cool then cut out circles of the waffle, place into the tumbler on top of the jelly.

  10. Mix the custard then pour a thick layer on top of the waffle. Then add another waffle circle on top of that making sure it doesn't sink into the custard.

  11. Whip the cream and dollop on top of the second waffle.

  12. Heat most of the sugar with a little water in a pan on a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved, keep adding water so it doesn’t boil dry.

  14. Leave to cool then place one sugared fruit on each trifle.
