The Spanish Fruit Trifle is a dessert that includes thick, creamy egg custard, a layer of liqueur-soaked lady fingers, and slices of fresh fruit drizzled with orange glaze. Colorful and attractive, as well as completely satisfying to those with a sweet tooth. Although the recipe includes strawberries and kiwis, substitute any fresh fruit of your liking.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 2 cups egg custard (recipe link below)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup Licor 43
  • 20 lady fingers
  • 2 pints strawberries
  • 4 kiwis


This Spanish fruit trifle makes 10 servings.

Prepare the egg custard recipe. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes.

Pour water, orange juice, sugar and cornstarch into a small saucepan and mix with a whisk. Heat on medium-high and stir with the whisk constantly until the mixture thickens, approximately 8 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Glaze will thicken.

Pour 1 cup orange juice and Licor 43 liqueur into a bowl and mix. Dip each lady finger into the mixture and line the bottom of a 13-inch x 9-inch glass pan.

Slice strawberries. Peel and slice kiwis.

Spread custard over the lady fingers. Arrange fruit slices over the custard. Drizzle the orange glaze until all fruit is covered. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Use sliced bananas, grapes and/or raspberries for variation.
