Mango Season Trifle - With All Flavors of mangoes

Mango season has already started.  I can see varieties of mangoes coming to the market and  have already started to taste them.  Mangoes are my favorite fruit and I can survive on them without having anything else. Two days back I had bought some Alphonso mangoes to try. As you all know Alphonso mangoes are one of the expensive mango variety and also they are most delicate mangoes too. When I got them,mangoes were semi ripened, but today when I checked them, all mangoes had got beautiful yellow color. So thought to make some recipe from it instead leaving them to get spoiled. Then came up with idea of Mango triple. Trifle desserts are the layered pudding dessert which can have multiple flavors into it. But for this Mango triple, I have tried to keep much of the mango flavors in the ingredients like I have used mango cake, mango custard , mango jelly so that the recipe can bring the taste of mangoes in every bite you have. So lets see how to make and assemble the recipe.

  • Mango flavored cake, diced -  1 cup (I used store bought, As you can use simple vanilla cake also)
  • Mango custard - 2 cups (follow the down recipe)

  • After few minutes you will see the mixture getting thick. turn off the flame.
  • Now add in condensed milk, mango pulp and cardamom powder. Mix everything well.
  • Let the mango custard cool down completely at room temperature.
  • Then refrigerate it for further use in the recipe.

Ingredients for Mango Jelly
  • Mango pulp - 1/4 cup
  • Sugar - 1 tbsp
  • Agar Agar powder-2 tsp
  • Water - 1/2 cup
Preparation of Mango jelly
  • Combine agar agar powder and water into one pot. Mix the mixture well and place it on the heat to boil.
  • When you see the agar agar powder is getting dissolved into boiling water, add in mango pulp and sugar.
  • Mix well and cook the mixture for another 2 minutes.
  • Turn off the flame.
  • Pour the mango jelly mixture into the tray and allow it to cool down.
  • Once the jelly is cool, refrigerate it to set it completely.
  • Then slice the jelly and use it in the recipe as required.

Assembling of Mango Trifle
  • Take a glasses of your choice. But make sure they are wide opened glasses with minimum depth.
  • Fill 1/3 the glass with chilled creamy mango custard. Layer it properly from top.
