Lemon Nearly-trifle With A Surprise

This is a perfect pudding to make ahead of time, for large numbers of people. It doesn’t achieve strict trifle status as it’s missing the cake, and it uses a kind of syllabub instead of custard, but it’s none the worse for that. The surprise is the alcohol-soaked almond biscuits at the bottom. 

Ratafia biscuits are usually smaller and a little darker in colour than amaretti, both are made with almond essence.
