Trifle – a good trifle is always an excellent choice, especially during the summer months when you can use the variety of fresh fruits available to you. Popular fruits to include are peaches, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. Why not try a twist on these delights and take a look at this recipe for a strawberry and elderflower trifle. What flavours speak of summer more than these two?
Your basic trifle consists of fruit placed in jelly and then ladyfingers soaked in the flavoured jelly or juice of your choice, topped with a beautiful custard ( again why not experiment with a strawberry flavoured custard rather than plain vanilla) and then final covered with a layer of cream and for a true throwback to your childhood why not add a few hundreds and thousands on the top!
Meringues – Any meringue recipe goes incredibly well with great company and the warm summer evenings. Traditionally you will find meringues included with raspberries ina pavlova style dessert and with strawberries in an eton mess.

This was go well with a nice glass of cool Pimms on a cool summer evening.
