Serves 12

Sponge

3 free-range eggs, yolks and whites separated

¾ cup caster sugar

¾ cup maize cornflour

1 tbsp plain flour or rice flour

1 tsp baking powder

3 tsp golden syrup

Orange Syrup

⅔ cup golden syrup

¼ cup white rum or liqueur

⅓ cup orange juice, strained

500g strawberries, hulled

Filling

1 kg PHILADELPHIA Lactose Free Cream Cheese

1 cup golden caster sugar

2 tsp vanilla paste

1 tsp orange zest

250g raspberries, hulled

250g blueberries 

A handful basil and mint leaves

For the sponge roll, grease and line a 20cm x 30cm sponge roll tin. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced). Beat egg whites until stiff, then beat in sugar and yolks. Continue beating until mixture resembles ribbons. Sift cornflour, flour and baking powder into egg mixture. Dissolve golden syrup in two teaspoons of boiling water. Add to egg mixture, stirring in gently with a metal spoon. Pour mix into sponge roll tin. Bake for 20 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Leave in tins for 5 minutes before turning out. 

For the syrup, combine golden syrup and  ⅓ cup water in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cool, stir in rum or liqueur and orange juice. Place two thirds of the strawberries in a bowl and pour the syrup over. Allow to sit at room temperature to macerate for 1 hour. Keep remaining berries for decoration.

For the filling, mix together the PHILADELPHIA Lactose Free Cream Cheese with the sugar, vanilla and orange zest until smooth, using an electric beater, until sugar has dissolved.

Drain strawberries and reserve syrup. Cut sponge roll into 1cm-thick slices and arrange one third of the slices over the bottom of a large glass serving bowl.

Moisten with a little of the syrup and spread over half of the macerated strawberries; spoon on more cream cheese filling. Place another layer of sponge, and moisten with syrup, top with remaining strawberries, and a few spoonfuls of cream cheese filling. Top with remaining cake, then add the last of the cream cheese mixture. Arrange reserved strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and herbs on top, covering the cream cheese. Spoon over a little more leftover syrup. Chill for 1-2 hours before serving.

Gluten Free: This trifle can be made gluten free by changing out the plain flour and baking powder for rice flour and gluten-free baking powder. 

Lactose Free: Consumers should check packaging of all ingredients to ensure they are lactose free.
