Jubilee Celebrations at Young Dementia Leeds

May 22

Young Dementia Leeds shares their cheap and easy version of the winning Jubilee trifle

The official Queen's Platinum Jubilee pudding has been announced as a lemon and Swiss roll amaretti trifle.

The dessert was inspired by the lemon posset served at Her Majesty's 1947 wedding to Prince Philip and was made by amateur baker who beat 5,000 people in a competition.

The official trifle has an ingredients list of a whopping 20 items and a complex recipe, so the team at Young Dementia Leeds, who want baking to be something that is accessible to everyone, have devised a simplified recipe of the winning dessert. YDL's version has incorporates some clever short cuts and is made with ingredients you can find in your local supermarket for a significant amount less than the price of the official ingredients list.
