Cranberry Trifle

Trifles are a traditional layered dessert made with alternating layers of fruit, cream, and cake. This one takes that normal recipe but adds cranberry to give it a bit of tang and a new take on the traditional berry versions you would often see. The cranberries are cooked into a jam and have sugar, orange peel, cinnamon and elderflower liqueur added to create a sweet yet complex flavored jam. Instead of cream, they are using whipped mascarpone, a cream cheese like Italian dish, often used in tiramisu.

Key Takeaways:

  • Angel food cake is known for being both tasty and healthy too. Add some tart cranberry jam for an unforgettable dish like no other.
  • The cranberry trifle is perfect for a dessert made around the holidays. Contrasting flavors and textures make the dish a special item to be tried.
  • Creamy whipped mascarpone is a fine finishing touch to add as well. It allows for a little cake decoration and a sweet touch at the end.
