Love It Or Hate It Turkish Delight

I must admit the only person I know that likes Turkish Delight is my dad. He goes mad for it. If you go out shopping to the local shops and bring him a little Turkish Delight chocolate bar back, then he is your best friend forever. Plus no one else likes it, he hasn’t got to worry about someone stealing them!

When he was poorly after having his pacemaker fitted I decided to make him some Turkish Delight to cheer him up and he absolutely loved it and this was the recipe! I am thinking to put this recipe in Cafe Bakery’s menu. So please share your reviews.

Low Fat Sunday Trifle

You’re probably wondering why I call this my low fat Sunday trifle? Mainly because that is what I always had on a Sunday growing up when my mum and dad invited people around for Sunday dinner. There would be a nice beef roast, Yorkshire Puddings, roast potatoes and all the usual bits and pieces.

Then for pudding, it would be a trifle and it was always really nice with low-calorie jelly (usually sugar-free) and then some mousse on top to seal the deal.

Sunday Trifle

Fast forward twenty years and this is what I prefer to make on a Sunday too. The kids love it, the adults love it and it is not too bad for the calories either.

  • 2 Sponge fingers
  • 2 sachets of sugar-free jelly
  • Fruit – strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc
  • 500g fat-free fromage frais
  • 1 tub of quark
  • 1 banana and custard muller light yogurt

Instructions

  1. Put fruit and sponge fingers in the bottom of a large serving bowl.
  2. Makeup ONE sachet of low-fat jelly and leave to cool then pour on top of the fruit and sponge fingers.
  3. Then put it in the fridge to set
  4. Once set make ¾ of the other sachet of low-calorie jelly and let it cool for about 5 minutes and mix in the fromage frais.
  5. Pour on top of the other fruit jelly that was in the fridge and let it set again in the fridge.
  6. Once it is set to mix together the quark and muller light then pour on top of the jellies.
  7. Then decorate with a few leftover fruit bits.
