166 / 365 Quick and easy trifle

I planned on serving peaches and cream for dessert tonight after dinner but I thought maybe it was a bit boring. I needed something quick, easy and tasty.
Just to let you know, this isn’t a sponsored post, I’m trying to cut back on the grocery bill each week and decided to take the downshift challenge set by Martin Lewis.
We already use quite a few Tesco Everyday Value products but I was amazed how many more there are that we haven’t tried so for the next few weeks, I’ll be working my way through them and seeing what they’re like.

Peachy Trifle
Serves 6 (You’ll need to buy 2 boxes of cake bars to get the extra bar but there are enough peaches, custard and cream for 6 servings in the amounts given)

Total cost = £2.01 (This includes 10p for the extra cake bar)
Cost per serving = 33p


Tesco Everyday Value Chocolate Chip Cake Bars – 5 pack – 50p
Tesco Everyday Value Tinned Peaches in Syrup – 410g – 29p
Tesco Everyday Value Ready To Serve Custard – 385g – 17p
Tesco Fresh Double Cream – 300ml – 95p


Crumble a cake bar into each dessert dish.

Drain the syrup from the peaches (we use the syrup to make frozen ring pops using a mold Ella got for Christmas)


then spoon 2-3 slices on top of each crumbled cake.

Now spoon the custard over the peaches.

And finally, whip the double cream until it forms soft peaks then spoon over the custard.

I was going to top them with some grated chocolate but I seem to have eaten it all *oops* 😀

Everyone said it was delicious and asked if I’d make it again; at that price, I sure will!

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
