Whim Wham

Serves 6

  • 6 sundae dishes or tall glasses
  • This is just a list of ingredients – you can add or remove whatever takes your fancy and what you have available:
  • 5 trifle sponges or leftover sponge cake
  • About 5 tablespoons raspberry jam or coulis
  • Dried cherries soaked in brandy
  • Sherry
  • Caramel sauce
  • About 570ml (1 pint) custard
  • Praline or flaked almonds
  • 275ml (½ pint) whipped cream

Cut the sponge into cubes and soak well in the sherry (have some yourself as well!) Layer the ingredients in the glass in no particular order (on a whim). Try those cherries! Maybe a bit of liqueur (see what you’ve got in the cupboard). Have another drink. Well, it is Christmas! Make sure you end up with a layer of custard then the whipped cream and a bit of crunchy praline on the top. Eat – wham!
