Gluten Free Boozy Baileys & Chocolate Trifle!


Merry Christmas to you all! This year I have made a simply delicious and boozy trifle as an alternative to the traditional Christmas Pudding! A lot of people have been talking about this on various coeliac websites, so I thought I’d write up my Gluten Free version to share with you all. I made it a few weeks ago and it vanished before I had time to take any photos!! I have made it this morning after a few glasses of champagne and whilst enjoying a pre lunch sherry… please bear with any mistakes, but I really wanted to share it with you today, it really is boozy and divine!!



  • 1x gluten free brownie mix, made up and cooled
  • 1x packet Schar Chocolate fingers
  • 120mls  Baileys
  • 30ml Camp coffee (or 2-3 tablespoons coffee)
  • 1x 500ml carton of fresh custard
  • 100g dark chocolate broken into chunks (make sure it is a gluten free bar!)
  • 100mls Baileys
  • 500mls double cream
  • 25g icing sugar


  • Cut up the chocolate brownie into approximately 1 inch squares and place in a large trifle bowl


  • Break up the Schar chocolate fingers into 1-2cm pieces and scatter over the brownie.


  • Mix together the camp coffee and 120mls of Baileys together and pour over the brownie and chocolate fingers and gently fold and mix together.


  • Place the custard and chocolate in a saucepan and gently heat until all the chocolate has melted.


  • Allow the custard to cool slightly before pouring it over the trifle brownies


  • Cover lightly with clingfilm and allow to cool before placing the trifle in a fridge to chill


  • Once the trifle has cooled, whisk together the cream, Baileys and Icing sugar until it forms soft peaks
Ok….I know I said soft peaks…but after too much fizz and sherry I’ve over whipped the cream!!


  • Gently remove the clingfilm from the trifle, carefully place the cream layer on the top of the trifle and chill until ready to serve!
Eat & Enjoy!!!
