English Trifle Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: May 13, 2009
A dessert made with gelatin, and then being called a Trifle. The recipe should be re-named to American Trifle. It is not bad to taste, but to call it an English Trifle is just such an insult to a proper English Trifle.

This recipe is awesome. Yes, it is the lazy American version...hence, easy and quick to make with lots of flavour. Who wants to spend all day in the kitchen anyway? I couldn't stop with just one serving. In addition, the mold holds up well, while at the same time melting in your mouth. I found using canned fruit cocktail made it easier to eat, as the pieces of fruit were not too large for eating. It was a hit with the crowd as well. A nice sweet dessert but not so rich, like cheesecake.
