Louise from Nordic Kitchen Stories Scandi roots means she is inspired by simple, classic, but tasty food combinations. Here she has created a new trifle recipe idea for you to try to wow friends and family over the festive period. Chocolate and cherry – with our proper Greek style Vanilla yogurt. Stunning!
Begin with the cherry compote. Place the water, cornflour and sugar in a medium pan. Whisk together, then heat gently to bring to a simmer. Cook until it thickens. Add the cherries & any juice, stir & cook for 3-4 mins. Remove from heat & cool.
Preheat oven to 180°C/fan160°C. Line a Swiss roll tin with baking paper.
Beat the egg yolks & sugar together with an electric whisk for 5 mins until thick. Now fold in the cocoa. Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form. Fold 1 tbsp of the egg white into the chocolate to slacken the mixture, then fold in the remainder. Spread on the paper on the tin. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Begin with a tbsp of compote, follow with our Greek style Vanilla yogurt, 3 pieces of sponge. Repeat, then top a tbsp of cream. Top with chocolate curls.
