The keen-eyed observer may recognise this mango, passionfruit and macadamia trifle from the Christmas menu - it was such a cracker that we thought it deserved another outing in honour of Australia Day. It’s even a patriotic green and gold, though subtly and tastefully, of course. We’re supplying it as a DIY trifle kit: passionfuit and lime syrup, Italian sponge fingers and vanilla bean custard, pureed mango, passionfruit pulp, whipped, lime-zest-flecked mascarpone and toasted macadamias. To keep the trifle kid-friendly, we’re leaving out any grog but you’re welcome to spike the passionfruit and lime syrup with white rum or even (if you're going fully troppo) Malibu. The day before serving, take out your Nanna’s finest cut-glass bowl – or individual glasses if you’re new school - with all the elements in front of you. Dip the sponge fingers in the passionfruit lime syrup (boozy or not, as you choose) and loosely fill the bowl with them. Spread the mango puree over the top, using a spatula to ease it into the crevices between fingers, then pour over the vanilla bean custard. Top with a layer of the whipped mascarpone and cover with cling film. The next day – and Happy Australia Day to you – uncover and drizzle with passionfruit pulp then scatter with macadamia nuts and the edible gold stars if using. What a treat! What a triumph! What a trifle! Serves 8.
