(This is a cheat's trifle, very quick to make, takes minutes, and one the boys said they'd like again if they want a proper dessert and we don't have anything.)
Bought Trifle Sponges
Seedless Raspberry Jam, or whichever jam you choose.
It's up to you how much you want of everything in each layer.
Assemble everything you're going to need first.
In a bowl mix 2 parts jam to 1 part boiling hot water, mix together until it loosens the jam and gives a nice syrupy like sauce.
In a separate bowl whisk together equal parts mascarpone and cream.
Cut the corner of the carton of custard or open the tin.
Take sponges out of packet.
Put one layer of sponge in the bottom of a glass, pour over the jam mix, pour on custard, then pour on cream and mascarpone mix. That's it! Not a patch on trifle made with jelly, sherry and fruit but it's sweet and hits the spot if needed and it takes less than 5 minutes to make!
Jango Fetta Pies (makes 24 mini pies)
Approx 1/2 packet of Filo Pastry
Approx 100g Feta Cheese
1 medium organic freerange Egg, beaten
Half cup Double Cream
Approx 75 g Soft Cream Cheese (we used Philadelphia chives)
In a bowl mash the feta cheese, then mix in the cream cheese, add the beaten egg and cream and mix it all together.
Lightly oil your muffin tin and place approx 2 sheets of file pastry in each hole. Depending on what size your filo pastry, you may need to cut it to size. (To get an even size we cut ours to approx 6cm by 6cm by slicing through a neat stack of filo).
Then fill the filo pastry with the creamy feta cheese and egg mixture.
Bake in the oven, 175C for approximately 12 minutes.
Note: If you have any spray oil then spray over the pastry before adding the mixture, we use one that's available from Lakeland which you put your own oil into. Much better than using things like onecal and the like which I'm sure have chemicals in them. Also we made these in a mini muffin pan, it made 24.
Tomorrow in the lunch boxes I will drizzle them with some sauce, I'm not sure what yet, probably Linghams mixed with some tomato ketchup.
...and for now I'm done with Star Wars food, though at some point the Yoda's Yorkie Puds filled with Han Solo Stuffing and Padme's Pea Puree and Galaxy Gravy will be made..
