While this makes a luxurious finish to a Boxing Day dinner, it would also be a brilliant dessert to serve on Christmas Day. The amount of pudding is just a guide use whatever you have.

1. Preheat the oven to 110C/gas . Make a custard by bringing the milk and 200ml cream to the boil with a grating of nutmeg. Meanwhile, whisk the yolks and sugar till pale. Divide the pudding between six clean 200ml jars.
2. Once the cream mixture reaches boiling point, pour over the yolks, stirring constantly. Strain the custard into the jam jars, then place on a tray and bake for 3040 minutes, till just set. Chill for a couple of hours.
3. To serve, top the trifles with crushed biscuits, then brandy cream. Finish with a sprinkle of toasted almonds.
