Lowcarb trifle !
Well only two more weekends left for those that are not yet organised with Christmas gift shopping to go and see what is still available. The car parks are full with queues to get parked, shoppers tempers are getting frayed around the edges.
Of course there are those of us who are just gliding through with all the gifts bought and wrapped, cards written and posted …….. but that is some one else not me I hear you say.
Whatever you still need to do, I’m sure it will get done and in the meantime here is a good recipe that may help with your Christmas Food Ideas.
A very tasty low carb trifle, it’s quite a favourite with us and the family. Why not give it a try and see what you think.
Ingredients: Serves 6-8 100 grams of ground almonds
1 teaspoon of baking powder 2 large eggs 1 tablespoon of melted butter 2 tablespoons of double cream
A pack of frozen lowcarb summer fruits
300ml of extra thick cream
A handful of toasted flaked almonds
2 x 12.5 grams of instant jelly crystals
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
Melt the butter, I use a Pyrex jug, add the eggs, double cream, then add the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into a 6" microwave proof dish. Microwave in a 700watt for 3 minutes. Allow to cool and break up the sponge into small pieces.
Layer up in a Pyrex bowl ( 7" wide by 4" deep ) the fruit, and sponge. Pour over the low carb raspberry liquid jelly and allow to set. Cover the top with extra thick cream and toasted flaked almonds.
