Raspberry and Amaretti Trifle with Mascarpone

    8 hours 15 min

    I created this dessert for my beloved last Valentine's Day. I didn't have much time for shopping or preparing, so it had to be fast. Judging from his face, it was a success. I make it more often now and not just on 14th February. I made the trifle the night before so that it had time to infuse.

    Serves: 8 

    • 200g amaretti
    • 300g frozen raspberries
    • 160ml Cassis, divided
    • 450g mascarpone
    • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
    • 4 tablespoons cream
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • Dark chocolate for sprinkling

    Prep:15min  ›  Extra time:8hr chilling  ›  Ready in:8hr15min 

    1. Crush the amaretti in the mortar (very carefully, otherwise they fly around everywhere). Fill the bottom of a trifle bowl with them.
    2. Mix raspberries while frozen with 100ml Cassis and spread evenly over the Amaretti.
    3. Stir the mascarpone, icing sugar, cream and 60ml of Cassis until nice and creamy. Fold in the vanilla. Spread the mixture over the raspberries carefully with a spatula, trying not to mix the two layers.
    4. Cover with cling film and leave for several hours, preferably overnight, in the fridge. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes before serving and sprinkle with chocolate if desired.
