According to Wikipedia:
A trifle is a dessert dish made from thick (or often solidified) custard, fruit, sponge cake, fruit juice or, more recently, gelatin, and whipped cream. These ingredients are usually arranged in layers with fruit and sponge on the bottom, and custard and cream on top.So we have three components to make for this dessert - the lemon mousse, the cooked peaches and the cake.
The lemon mousse was simple to whip up and definitely the most delicious part of the whole dessert.
Then the peaches - AAH! Those suckers are so annoying the pit and slice. After getting annoyed with them for this dessert and struggling with a peach dessert last summer, I am vowing to only use canned or frozen peaches from now on. I know, I know, it's terrible - but so are those peaches!!! Anyway, toss your peaches with a bit of sugar and roast them:
If you have leftover cake or scraps, those would be great. You can also be really ambitious and bake a cake. Or you can be like me and pick one up from the grocery store :)
Once you have all three elements, you just start layering! I don't have a pretty footed trifle dish, so I just used a glass bowl.
Mmm, mmm. The lemon mousse was definitely the star. This is such an amazing summer dessert - on it's own, with any kind of cake, with any fruit (i bet blueberries would be so good!). If you don't want to make this exact dessert, make the mousse and serve/eat it however you desire.
