- Preparation Time: 30 Minutes
For the Biscuits
- 8 oz (225 g) gluten-free plain flour mix
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- ¼ tsp gluten-free baking powder
- 5 oz (150 g) butter, softened
- 6 oz (180 g) caster sugar
- 1 large free-range egg
For the Custard
- 7 fl oz (200 ml) whipping cream
- 2 tbsp icing sugar
- gluten-free cocoa powder
How to Make It
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/ Gas Mark 4. Grease and line two large baking trays with greaseproof paper.
- Combine the flour mix, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder in a large mixing bowl, stirring well.
- Cream together the butter and sugar in a separate mixing bowl until smooth. Beat in the egg until incorporated.
- Gently beat in the dry ingredients in three additions until you have a smooth dough. Take generous teaspoons of the dough and roll into balls. Place on the baking trays, spaced apart, and flatten slightly with your hands. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden-brown at the edgess. Remove from the oven and let cool on their trays.
- For the custard, bring the milk to boiling point in a saucepan set over a moderate heat.
- Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, egg yolk, cornflour, sugar and vanilla extract in a heatproof mixing bowl. When the milk is simmering, remove it from the heat and slowly whisk into the egg mixture until fully incorporated. Strain the custard back into a clean saucepan and cook over a low heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Pour into a bowl and cover the surface with an oiled piece of clingfilm. Chill for 4-6 hours until cold. Place the biscuits in an airtight container.
- To serve, when the custard has chilled, crush half of the biscuits into rough crumbs, dividing them between the bases of 6-8 serving glasses. Top with the custard. Crush the remaining biscuits into finer crumbs, sprinkling them on top of the custard.
- Whip the cream with the icing sugar to soft peaks in a small mixing bowl. Spoon on top of the trifles and dust with a pinch of cocoa powder.
