Nigella posts a recipe here: http://communitytable.com/28354/nigellalawson/the-boozy-british-trifle/

I have not made it, but I have made other Nigella desserts, and have been very happy with them.

Thank you Bevi! I'm going to try this one - substituting the candied rose petals with pomegranate seeds - this is exactly the one I was looking for. SallyM

Nigella's Chocolate Cherry Trifle is also excellent

Simon Hopkinson, of "Roast Chicken and other stories" fame is one of my favorite British cooks. I grew up with my Welsh Grandmother and mother in Bermuda, this one won kudos from my mom- http://www.simonhopkinson.tv/recipe/11/sherry-trifle.aspx

This is just like the trifle my English relative makes - delicious!

SallyM - keep in mind you can play with the recipe beyond substituting for rose petals. e.g., the nuts, the booze (a liqueur more to your taste than sherry, another fortified wine, even spirits like vodka, rum or bourbon)...
