      Hi Silpa

      Cook the pineapple till it becomes soft and till its raw taste is gone.

      Hope you will like this.

    hi maria
    i would like to try this recipe.
    is it ok to use tinned pineapple? if yes do we hv to cook it in the sugar syrup.

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Roshna,

      You can use tinned pineapple. Instead of adding sugar may be you can pour the syrup from the tin and cook the pineapple in that. Do a taste check and see whether the sweetness is ok and add sugar if its required.

      Hope you will like it.

      Cheers

    Maria,it seems ur Recipe Gallery does not have this dish presented. Please check again. Also check whether any dishes are missing from the Recipe Gallery list.

    • Rose

      Also, one doubt…shouldn’t the whipping cream be whipped in this recipe?

    • http://jpm.cc Jose

      Rose, thanks for pointing that out… this recipe was posted a very long while ago… so some of the images dont appear on the recipe gallery. Will try to fix it…

      Please try the search box, its the best way to find things on the site :)

  • Rose

    Yes,Jose..it was by searching in the search box that i found out this one..because i remember seeing this in the blog some time back and wanted to check again..but could not find again in the recipe gallery …so searched for it as i remembered the name trifle..and i understood that it might have got missed when u guys redesigned the site..the recipe gallery is an important place since normal visitors go there and check often (wat if i had forgotten the term ‘trifle’?)…thus wanted to alert you…just like that

    also, Maria..i have one doubt…shouldn’t the whipping cream be whipped?is it meant to be just poured over?

    • http://www.mariasmenu.com Maria

      Hi Rose,

      Thanks for pointing out that it wasnt listed in the recipe index. I guess Jose is working on it. I’m so sorry dear for the delayed reply, I’m on a small vacation now, hence I dont check the mails frequently. Hope you understand.

      In this particular recipe, I havent whipped the cream and used it as such.

      Hope you’ll like the pudding. Once again sorry for replying late :(

      Wish you & your family a Merry Christmas!

      Cheers

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Smitha,

      Though I havent tried this with any other fruit, google search tells me that you can make trifle pudding with strawberry, mango etc;

      Cheers

  • Reshmi James

    Do you have a recipe for the sponge cake used in this pudding?

  • Smitha

    Hi Maria can you tell me how many people this recipe will serve?

    • http://mariasmenu.com Maria Jose

      Hi Smitha, it should be enough for 6-8 people.

      I’m sorry for the delayed reply, I was away on a short trip.
