Granny's Dessert - Trifle Sponges & Custard
10 mins (prep 10)
5 ingredients
4 servings
This isn't truly a trifle recipe, it's just what my sister and I used to call it when we were kids. I don't think there's really a name for it - it's just very simple, sweet and yummy. It looks nothing special, it sounds nothing special, but serve it up and it'll be gone in seconds!
