This recipe comes from South Africa where my sister-in-law,
Allouise, served it one Christmas.
This is my 250th vegan recipe blog! I will be signing off now as our first guest are arriving. I will be back in the New Year 2012 with many more vegan recipes. Happy Christmas to you all.

  1. Trifle for Christmas was fabulous – a real hit with the kids! Thanks for this great recipe

    • Thanks Fiona,
      My trifle was rather runny as the custard did not set firmly. A friend advised me that in the tropics you need to use less soya milk for it to set (the ratio is a 5th less – 500 mls in the recipe use 400 mls).
