Recipe by Lisawas
"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!"

Oh gosh this brings back memories. Jessie Parker a friend from years ago used to make this at Christmas to share with our Secretary's group. I remember it having strawberries or cherries sometimes. Oh the sherry was heady with that whipped cream...sighhhhh. Thanks for sharing.
Absolutely delicious, it's just missing one final ingredient, but I don't know what it is... Apart from that, it's the BEST!!!!!
Just a tip for more flavor - when I make my homemade custard, I do so in a double boiler. After the milk is hot (not to boiling) I add (4) beaten egg yolks and a mix (in separate bowl) of 1/4 sugar, pinch of salt and 2-3 Tblsps corn startch. I slowly add the dry mix after adding the yolks into the hot milk and simmer until thick, stirring frequently. Then I add (1) Tsp. vanilla extract and (1) Tblsp. butter. This custard works great for coconut cream pie (wherein I add (1) cup toasted coconut after the custard thickens) and also for filling cream puffs. After it has cooled a bit, I pour it into a shallow bowl and cover w/plastic wrap, being sure to fit the wrap tightly around the top of the custard, thus avoiding watery custard when refrigerated. And using whole milk is the key, not low-fat milk.
