Fruit Trifle


  • whites of 6 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 cupful of grated pineapple or cut up fresh strawberries or fresh raspberries or cut up fresh, ripe peaches or apricots or any fruit jam or jelly


Beat whites light, add the sugar and beat about half an hour then beat in the fruit and beat five minutes. Serve ice cold in sherbet glasses as it is or chopped with flavored whipped cream. "Trifle" is sometimes made by using whipped cream, sweetened, and adding one cupful of cut up fresh berries, or peaches or orange pulp or bananas chopped, or half a glass of any fruit, jam or any jelly cut into small pieces. Beat it through the whipped cream. This is a simple and palatable dessert which can be quickly made.
