Black Forest Trifles

One of my all time favourite cakes/desserts is Black Forest Gateau & I came up with this quick & easy pud whilst reminiscing about it one day! Enjoy!

Serves 4 Approx 65p per person

Prep time 15 minutes Cooking time none


1 small chocolate swiss roll (Sainsbury's Basics is perfect & only 30p!)

1 tin cherries in syrup, drained reserving the syrup

300ml double cream

grated chocolate to decorate

Put 4 cherries to one side & roughly chop the rest.

Whip the cream until thick then gently fold in the chopped cherries.

Slice the swiss roll into 8.

Place a slice of swiss roll in the bottom of a glass or serving dish & pour over a little of the cherry syrup. Spoon some of the cream & cherry mixture on top.

Repeat then decorate with some grated chocolate & a whole cherry.

Serve immediately or keep in the fridge until ready to serve. (Can be made a few hours ahead!)
