This trifle is rich with whipped cream, sponge cake, and the season's fruit. Traditional English trifle calls for liqueur, but the fresh juices of blackberries and peaches keep our version moist.

    Looks delicious but I believe there is an error in the recipe. It says 1foot pure vanilla extract. I am guessing it should be 1 tsp. extract.

    Regarding the questions about the heavy cream, this recipe is supposed to have 6 steps, not 5. I found the correct version by clicking a link from this window. Number 3 states, "In a small bowl, whip 1 cup cream until stiff peaks form; set aside for batter. Whip remaining 2 cups cream, and refrigerate." I hope this helps.

    I would love to make this, but I also am very confused about how much of the heavy cream gets folded into the cake batter and how much gets usedc to make the wipped cream. Can anyone comment? Thank you
