Ditch the pavlova: Kylie Bax

Kylie Bax will be ditching the pavlova in favour of her version of the classic trifle dessert.

"I make it with ginger ale and a little drop of sherry so it's kid-friendly, no jelly but lots of jam on the sponge and plenty of custard and cream on top. I simply can't get enough."

Trifle recipe with Kylie's own twist

Ingredients:

1 unfilled sponge
2 1/2 tbsp custard powder
2 tbsp sugar
2 cups milk
Raspberry jam
Ginger ale
Sherry
Cream for whipping

Custard:

1. Put custard powder and sugar into a bowl, mix to a smooth paste with of the milk.
2. Put the remaining milk into a saucepan and heat gently until it's almost boiling.
3. Combine the milk and paste mixture and return to heat until it boils and thickens.
4. Allow the custard to cool.

Trifle:

1. Spread lots of your favourite jam on the sponge - as much as you like. Then cut the sponge into fingers and press it into the base of a suitable bowl.
2. Pour the ginger ale over the sponge and add a drop of sherry. Don't drown it, just make sure there is enough to soak the sponge.
3. Pour the cooled custard over the soaking sponge and pop the bowl in the fridge to set.
4. To serve, top with whipped cream, fresh berries or grated chocolate.
