No-bake, no-cook loadshedding trifle

We can’t get away from loadshedding, but it’s no excuse to spend less time in the kitchen. Abigail Donnelly shares these easy sweet treats to make with or without power.

In our house, we often spend weekends baking and making our weekly treats. Even if there’s no loadshedding, sometimes it’s fun to make desserts that you can make without any cooking. I call them layered desserts. The kids love crushing the biscuits and mixing it all together. You can use many things in your layered pudding but here is my latest concoction for you to enjoy. It’s naughty but so nice!

Crush a packet of ginger biscuits, then mix a tub of cream cheese with a can of Caramel Treat and 250g smooth peanut butter (I know, how delicious?). Slice a couple of not too ripe bananas.

Now start layering, either in a pretty glass bowl or individual dishes, tumblers or teacups.

Start with a smear of the caramel mixture then add a layer of biscuits, the banana and keep on layering, finishing off with some grated white chocolate if you like. Put it in the fridge until you’re ready to eat it.

Here are some other ideas that you might enjoy:

• Crushed Oreos layered with strawberries and whipped cream
• Crushed Tennis biscuits layered with lemon curd mixed with full-cream yoghurt and blueberries
• Nutella mixed with peanut butter and cream, layered between crushed Salticrax biscuits, drizzled with toffee sauce

Enjoy a spoonful of decadence!
