Festive Trifle Recipe by Charlotte Ree

This festive trifle recipe is being shared by no-fuss baker, first-time author, and pun-lover Charlotte Ree from her debut book Just Desserts.

Making a trifle can be a little time-consuming but, thankfully, the process can be spread out over a few days to make your life easier. The best thing about trifles is that they are so adaptable. I have used port wine jelly and red berries here as they are the most festive, but you can alter the recipe to include your favourite fillings and flavours.
