Vanilla & Chocolate Custard Trifle



Eid Mubarak in advance to all of you lovely people!

Eid-ul-fitr is the festival that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. As we have been fasting the whole month and usually break our fasts with lots of savory snacks so it is natural that on Eid day we make lots of sweet dishes and desserts to compensate the lack of sugar intake in Ramadan!

I guess it is our love for sweets that Eid-ul-fitr is more affectionately also known as ‘meethi Eid’ or sweet Eid!

So keeping this sweet tradition alive I am sharing a dessert recipe with you today! I feel really excited as I am taking part in this virtual potluck #EidEats2016 being hosted by lovely Sarah of Flour & Spice Blog, Henna of My Ninja Naan and Asiya of Chocolate & Chillies.


When it comes to sweets let me make a confession that I do not have a sweet tooth at all! For all of you sugar addicts out there this may sound strange but I literally run at the sight of sweet treats! My sugar level increases by just looking at sweet things! Having said that there are a few desserts that I really adore provided they are mildly sweetened. And custard is one of them! But a plain custard is kind of boring so I like to mix other things with it to make a simple dessert look a bit fancier!

Today I am sharing a simple recipe that looks so pretty, is yummy and is really easy to make as well! With all those food preps for Eid, one easy and simple dessert saves a lot of time! And  you can do so much more with it according to your taste. Just let your imagination run wild!



This post is going to be a little different than my usual posts where I do a step by step guide. The recipe is so simple that I decided to skip this part. I hope you all would agree!

So let’s begin!

Ingredients used:

  1. Vanilla & chocolate custards: I made thick custards using ½ litre milk each for both flavours
  2. Candi biscuits 1 packet (You would need more if serving in a big dish)
  3. Coarsely crushed walnuts
  4. Whipped cream
  5. Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate shavings for garish (use any chocolate you fancy)



You can serve in a big dish or in dessert glasses whichever is convenient for you. Pour room temperature custards in separate piping bags for easy pouring if you are serving individually in dessert glasses. Crush the biscuits if serving in glasses as it is easy to layer. You can use whole biscuits for layering if serving in a big dish.

First make a layer of biscuits in a flat dish or in case of glasses put some crushed biscuits. Then some walnuts. Then spread vanilla custard. Then again the biscuits and walnuts. Now spread chocolate custard. Finally spread whipped cream on the top. Garnish with chocolate flakes and more walnuts.

Serve chilled!


You can use different flavored custards. Use fresh fruits instead of biscuits. Include sponge cake or jelly for some color. Be creative and enjoy!

  3. As someone with sweet teeth, this looks absolutely delicious! There has been no lack of sugar in Ramadan for me though, so I’ll take any excuse to eat sweets. I kinda wish that I was like you and didn’t have a sweet tooth. It’s really not good for my health. But I can make exceptions 😉 Early Eid Mubarak!
