Allergy Trifle!

photo by Darling RetroIt’s Christmas and allergy-sufferers like Christmas too. This year I decided to make small boy a trifle.

Jelly and raspberries are not  a problem, but trifle sponges are. However, I discovered we could use the bun part of an iced bun, which is kind of a sweet bread, and that worked fine. If you are avoiding gluten, try some plain gluten-free cake.

I also discovered that Blancmange (from a packet) does not contain milk, so I made up some blancmange with non-dairy milk. If you eat soy, try soy milk, but I tried both rice milk and oat milk. Oat milk works much better because it is thicker, but rice milk will give you a translucent semi-solid attempt. The blancmange I used contained wheat, but the basic ingredients of blancmange are cornflour, colour and sugar, so you could make your own wheat-free version by hand, if you get a wheat-free cornflour (this is possible, but can be difficult to find because of harvesting and milling technicques)

Small boy does not like cream, but you could add soy cream or oat cram on top. And hundreds and thousands of course!
