Custard powder




Strawberry jam




Strawberries, halved




Madeira cake

Approx 300g

Whipping cream


Step 1 of 2

For the custard: evaporated milk, sugar and custard powder together in a small saucepan. Place over a medium heat and slowly bring to a simmer whilst stirring. Once the custard has thickened remove from the heat and allow to cool. Cover the saucepan with a lid or plate whilst it is cooling to prevent a skin forming on the top of the custard.

Whilst the custard is cooling. Wash the berries and then tip into a large bowl. Add the strawberry jam, mix through and put to one side. Use a food processor to crumb the Madeira cake until it resemble bread crumbs. Finally whip the cream until it is light and fluffy and hols its own soft peaks.

Step 2 of 2

In a large glass bowl layer the berries and crumbs starting with the berries. After each additional layer give the bowl a gentle shake. Pour the custard over the last berry layer, and finally spoon over the cream and spread over evenly.
