For the Pastry Cream:

6 tbsp Velor dissolved in 2 cups water
1 cup canned cream
Pinch of salt
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 cup sugar
4 large eggs
1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces

For the Trifle:

3 cups strawberries, leaves removed and halved
1/2 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon for cream
Pinch of salt
1 Vanilla cake readymade, cubed
1/2 cup Goody Pancake syrup
3 cups mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
1 cup heavy cream


Cream Caramel:

  • In a medium saucepan, combine milk, cream, salt, and vanilla bean. Bring to just under a boil.
  • In a second bowl, whisk together cornstarch and sugar, then whisk in eggs. Add a ladle of hot milk mixture to egg mixture, whisking constantly. Repeat twice, then whisk egg mixture into remaining milk mixture in pot.
  • Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until bubbling and thick, about 2 minutes.
  • Strain through a fine sieve, then whisk in butter. Place plastic wrap directly onto surface of cream and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours and up to overnight. Whisk to loosen before using.

Assemble the trifle:

  • Mix strawberries with 1/2 cup sugar and salt. Let stand 30 minutes.
  • Brush cake with syrup. Layer cake cubes in bottom of your trifle dish or bowl. Spread 1 generous cup macerated strawberries over top, then 1 cup cream caramel mixture and 1 cup whole berries. Repeat layering twice more. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Whip heavy cream to medium peaks with 1 tablespoon sugar and spoon over top. Garnish with fresh berries.
