This bright layered Tiramisu Trifle Dessert featuring lemon curd and mascarpone is a showstopper! It’s easy to assemble and make ahead so you have time to enjoy the reactions as you set it on the table.
I can never resist the bright and cheery flavours of citrus fruit. If you love citrus as much as I do, have a look at some of my favourite citrus based recipes on the blog. I love the rich and creamy tart lemon curd that tops these Mini Lemon Cheesecakes and the best way to start any day is a toast topped with Meyer Lemon Ginger Marmalade.
A Dessert fit for a Celebration
Easter arrived really early this year, as did our lovely spring weather. I’m still seeing reports of snow storms from across our country. However, my daffodils are up and the lawn maintenance companies have come knocking.
Easter occurred so early that it fell on the same weekend as my husband’s birthday. A combination Easter dinner/birthday celebration meant an extra special celebratory dessert.
Make Ahead Desserts Reduce Dinner Party Stress
This dessert looks super fancy and full of steps, but it really isn’t too difficult to make. Most importantly, it can be made and refrigerated ahead of time then served with a flourish at the end of the meal.
It’s a stunner of a dessert for that special occasion at your table. The reaction you get when you place this trifle on the table is worth the time it took to make it!
Typically, a traditional Tiramisu has visible layers of soaked ladyfingers covered with mascarpone cream.
A Trifle is messy but not as messy as an Eton Mess because it has layers, nor does it have meringues.
This Lemon Curd Mascarpone and Earl Grey Amaretto Tiramisu Trifle walks the line between two of these desserts; Tiramisu and Trifle. It has dipped lady fingers like a Tiramisu, and is served layered in a trifle bowl.
How to Assemble This Tiramisu Trifle
Begin by dipping the each ladyfinger entirely in the tea/amaretto liquid and placing it in the bottom of a trifle bowl. Repeat with more ladyfingers, arranging them so they fit together in a single layer:
Spread a layer of mascarpone over top of the ladyfingers:
Spoon some of the lemon curd over top of the mascarpone cheese:
Sprinkle some of the candied almond slivers and begin another layer:
After you’ve built up the layers, top with whipped cream and the remainder of the candied almonds.
