Whim Wham

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!
