A rich trifle is made with pound cake, sherry and custard layered in a bowl and topped with a lightly sweetened whipped cream. This trifle is the special recipe from my grandmother and has been perfected over the years by other family members as well. It is a must have dessert during the holiday season. Make a huge batch, serve and if you don’t eat it all, stick it in the fridge and it tastes even better the second day!
