English Cuisine

Some of our favorite dishes in America hail from England, and is it any wonder? From fish and chips and savory meat pies, to heavenly trifle and sweet scones, English cuisine rings our favorite culinary bells.

Strawberry Crown Trifle

Better Homes and Gardens

Trifles, a timeless English dessert, usually consist of cake cubes soaked with brandy, rum, or liqueur and layered with jam and custard. This version, from 1974 version, has crushed fresh fruit for the jam and a rich vanilla pudding for the custard. Assemble and refrigerate the trifle a day before serving so the pudding, berries, and liqueur have time to flavor the cake. This beautiful cake makes 12 servings.
