No picture with this one…
So, I made a Trifle the other night, and it actually turned out SOO good! I combined a couple of different recipes and ideas, and really liked it. I, of course, didn’t take any pictures of it, but I’m putting the recipe on here so that I won’t forget.
Step 1: Make Angel Food Cake (Pound cake may also be good!)
I used a boxed Angel Food Cake. All I had to do was add water, mix in my mixer, and bake! 35 minutes later, you flip it over (in the angel food cake pan) and let it cool. EASY!
Step 2: Buy or make lemon curd. I bought a jar of it because I was a bit busy. BUT, you can pretty easily make it. It’s basically eggs, sugar, lemon and butter. So, if you have all of that, just make it!!! (http://www.chefscatalog.com/blog/gift-from-the-kitchen)
Step 3: Blueberries!! Blueberries are just starting to be in season here right now and are DELICIOUS!!!! I had 2 small containers. I washed them and drained them and set them to the side to dry.
Step 4: Make mousse! I got the recipe for the mousse here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/96616354480891681/
I made the recipe exactly the same, but then instead of Basil, i used mint, and refrigerated the mousse in 1 large glass bowl instead of separate dishes. http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=2736718
Step 5: Assemble!
Use scissors or a serrated knife to cut the angel food cake into approx. 2-inch squares. Then, you layer. Start using 1/3 of the angel food cake pieces, and layer in the bottom of a trifle dish, or large punch bowl. Then layer in the lemon curd, blueberries and mouse. I just dolloped bits of everything in there until the layer was nicely covered, and then topped it with lemon zest. I then repeated 2 additional times until there were 3 layers, and then topped it with chopped mint.
Easy Peasy lemon squeezy!!! HAHA! 🙂
