Pink Saturday - Dessert

Plenty of Pink this week – raspberries & more raspberries. clip_image002


Well, mixed with cream they are pink.clip_image002[7]


Individual Raspberry trifles.


Cut trifle sponges in half and spread with a little raspberry jam.

Place in the bottom of the dish and add sherry or kirsch or any liqueur you fancy.

Blend a few raspberries with icing sugar to make a coulis and layer on top of sponge.

Whip double cream and layer that on top of coulis.

Add layer of berries.clip_image002[7]

Keep layering until 3/4s full.

Top with custard and toasted nuts , I prefer almonds.


Final course was a cheese board with grapes .




I hope you enjoyed these recipes there are many more in my head.

  1. Those look great, and thanks for the links. Have a great weekend. We're expecting more snow today, so I don't think we will be going too far.

  2. Pink Saturday is such a fun time of the week for me in the wintertime. Michigan winters are not only cold, they are very gray and today is no exception to the rule.

    Thank you so much for sharing your blog this Pink Saturday and for making my day brighter and pinker and more fun!☺

    ♥Wishing you sunshine surrounded by those you love today, tomorrow and always♥

  3. Happy Pink Saturday!

  8. Of course I love trifle......these sound great and I may give in despite the diet!

    The slide show of the kids is nice Jean - how I wish I could see them all. One of these days we'll be back, but not this Spring unfortunately.

    Meanwhile, you have to add your guess to my travel have until Sunday so stop on over. I'm going on a really big trip in May!!!!

    We've been snowed in since Sat. (Tues. now), our drive is a ski run and the street an ice rink, now it's raining so an icy mess out there. I'm practicing 'camping', three days with no makeup, no blow drying, sitting around a blazing fire, and wearing the same clothes, lol!!!!

    Love to you all.
