- Hey, guys, today I'm gonna show you how to make the ultimate breakfast trifle. This is a great sharer when you have loads of friends or family around, and they can all dig in at breakfast time. It's filled with fruit and yogurt, granola, mini pancakes, and brioche, some of my favorite things to have at breakfast. I'm gonna start by showing you how to make my granola. This is really easy to whip up. I'm going to add some sunflower oil into my bowl. And to that I'm going to add in some golden syrup. You want to add all of your wet ingredients first. We're creating a syrupy sauce to coat all of the rest of our ingredients in. In with that, I'm gonna mix in some soft light brown sugar. Give that a good mix in. And then all that's left to do is add in the rest of my ingredients. So I've got some bran, some rolled oats. This will add a really nice crunch. I've chosen to go for two nuts. I've got some pistachios and cashews as they're my favorites, but feel free to switch up the nuts. And finally some flavorings. I've got some flaked sea salt and some cinnamon. Give that a real good stir together and make sure it all gets covered in that syrup. Pour that onto your baking tray. I've chosen quite a big one 'cause it needs to lie down quite flat. I've popped some baking paper on there too so it doesn't stick. That can now go into the oven. While I wait for the granola, I'm going to make my mango compote. This is super quick to whip up, and it's going to go really well with the yogurt and the mini pancakes and all of the other delicious fruit. So I've some mango. I've chopped it up into some small cubes. I'm gonna pop that into my saucepan along with some lemon and lime juice, freshly squeezed. This is gonna add a really nice flavor to the mangoes. And then finally some sugar to sweeten it up. Give that a stir over a low heat until the sugar dissolves, and then it simmer for a good five to 10 minutes. My mangoes have softened really nicely. Now, I don't want to blitz this into a puree, so I'm just going to use the back of my wooden spoon to mash it down a bit. I like having some chunks of mangoes as a bit of bite. I'm gonna mix that around, give it a little bash. Now, that is the mango compote done. You wanna leave that on the side until it's completely cooled and then we can start assembling the trifle. Now that my granola is out of the oven, I like to add in some dried cranberries. Gives a nice pop of color and a nice chew to the granola. Just sprinkle them over and give them a mix in. I'm gonna start my trifle with a layer of torn chocolate chip brioche. This is going to be a lovely, pillowy base for the rest of my ingredients. I absolutely love brioche and the sweet smell it has. I think this is a perfect breakfast treat. The reason why I'm taking up my brioche is so it's a lot easier to spoon out later. For my next layer, I'm adding on some fresh raspberries. Gonna decorate them around the edge first so from the outside you can see it's a new layer. That's what I love about trifles. You can see all the lovely layers and the ingredients. I think it looks so pretty. In a traditional trifle, you would have layers of custard. Now, for my breakfast version, I've chosen to go for a natural yogurt. You wanna pour that all over the raspberries and drip it down onto the sides. On top of the yogurt, I'm going to pour over some of the cooled mango compote. You can add as much or as little as you would like. Now onto my favorite part of the trifle, which are these mini Dutch pancakes. These are so sweet and delicious and they're the perfect next layer. Another great breakfast fruit for me are blueberries. I love these, especially with the natural yogurt. I'm gonna pour those all over the pancakes. Some will drop down, which is great. We're almost at the top of my trifle. I'm going to add another layer of the natural yogurt, some cooled granola, and then finally some more mango compote. This is definitely best served fresh, so make sure you try to plate this up as close to serving as possible. So there you have it. That is how you make my ultimate breakfast trifle. Easy.
