English Trifle Dessert

1 pound cake (or any kind of sponge cake)
1 small pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1 c. cream sherry
strawberry or raspberry jam
1/2 pt. whipping cream
chopped nuts
a few glace cherries

A shallow crystal bowl presents this dessert in an elegant way. If not available, use a flat, large Pyrex dish. Cut cake into slices and spread with jam. Pour sherry over and let marinate several hours.

Make pudding according to instructions. Pour over cake mixture. Cool and refrigerate.

Before serving, whip cream and spread over custard. Sprinkle chopped nuts over and a few cherries.

Serves 8 to 10 according to size of portions.
