This raspberry trifle looks terrific when you put it on the table. Foamy ladyfingers, a layer of sweet jam, followed by fresh raspberries, and all topped with a delicious vanilla whipped cream. This trifle is a sweet temptation. This dessert looks delicious in a nice (trifle) bowl but is also very elegant in beautiful glasses as a dessert for one person.
Do you want a delicious dessert that is also quick, easy, and simple to make? Then you have a recipe that meets all those requirements. You make it with fresh raspberries, jam, ladyfingers, and creamy whipped cream.
The dish is ready to serve in 10 minutes. Ideal for dessert for Mother's Day, Father's Day or a summer dinner. But also a good idea as a Christmas dessert! Especially because it is such an easy recipe.
Delicious sweet raspberries combined with ladyfingers and vanilla whipped cream. A dessert that is so tasty that one portion is always too little!
A dessert with seasonal fruit
Although this trifle certainly does not look out of place on the Christmas table, it is the most delicious during the raspberry season.
Then the fruits are so sweet that they need almost nothing. Tiny raspberry berries bursting into sweet flavors in your mouth.
But if it's not the season, or if you don't have raspberries, you can of course also use strawberries, mandarins or apple with cinnamon.
- Ladyfingers - A trifle with a layer of ladyfingers is always good. Because the cookies absorb the flavors so well, they are often used in a trifle. If you want a different flavor, use brownies or chocolate chip cookies as a base. Because chocolate and raspberries are a great combination this will taste great.
- Cream - In this recipe I use cream. Often the choice is Mascarpone for the creamy layer (because the layers remain separated better). I didn't opt for that, because then the raspberry trifle becomes very indulgent, and I wanted to keep it light. If you want your whipped cream to stay in better shape, you could also use a combination of 3 tablespoons of mascarpone with ⅔ cup (150 ml) of cream.
- Raspberries - This recipe needs fresh raspberries. But if you can't get them, you can also use blackberries or strawberries in this recipe. They're great alternatives.
- Vanilla Extract - Vanilla is delicious in combination with raspberries. If you don't have vanilla extract, you can also replace it with two teaspoons of vanilla sugar.
Step 1 - Prepare the vanilla whipped cream
- In a large bowl, pour the cream, vanilla extract, and sugar. If you want to make this recipe in advance, replace ½ cup of cream with mascarpone so that the whipped cream remains stiff.
- Beat until the cream is stiff, about three minutes.
Step 2 - Cover the bowl with ladyfingers
Spread the ladyfingers over the bottom of the bowl. Also cover the sides if you like.
Step 3 - Begin with adding the first layers
- Apply a layer of raspberry jam on the ladyfingers.
- Spread the raspberries over the jam.
Step 4 - Top with a layer of vanilla cream
Cover the layers with the vanilla whipped cream. Smooth the cream layer, so that the raspberries are completely covered. Garnish with some fresh raspberries and if you don't want to serve it right away, store it in the refrigerator. The flavors will even become better by storing for one hour.
Yes you can, but… I recommend making it the same day. If you want to make the trifle a day in advance, I have two tips
1. Make the trifle but add the layer of whipped cream just before serving.
2. Mix ⅔ cup (150 ml) cream with three tablespoons of mascarpone and use that as a topping.
In most trifles, you sprinkle alcohol on the cookies. In a traditional trifle, that's Sherry. But Cointreau, rum, or liqueur is certainly also tasty.
This trifle is delicious when you drizzle two tablespoons of sherry over the ladyfingers.
Please note that the trifle is then no longer suitable for children and pregnant people.
NB in this trifle we use a minimal amount of vanilla extract. Vanilla extract often also contains alcohol. If you don't want to use that, replace it with two teaspoons of vanilla sugar. The recipe is then alcohol-free.
