ANZAC Day, 25th April, is a day of remembrance for those who have served and fought for our freedom and the quality of life we have today. If you show you support on ANZAC day by attending a dawn service or by simply inviting friends around for brunch as a form of celebration, my whole food trifle is the perfect recipe to share. This trifle can be prepared the night before making it a quick and simple dish to serve on ANZAC day. This recipe can also be drizzled with a little bit of golden syrup in replace of honey for a greater ANZAC feel!
