The ‘FRIENDS’ trifle
Every Friends fan has seen the episode in which Rachel made an awful dish. I have seen lots of people on the internet who have made this horrible combination of a trifle( sweet) and a shepherd’s pie(a dinner recipe). I guess secretly people do wonder what was so awful about it! The only ‘Friend’ who loved it was Joey of course. The rest thought it tasted like feet as Ross described it so perfectly. Recently, I’ve seen that episode and I thought : “I should make a trifle!” Obviously I’m not making one that tastes like a body part. This one is quite delicious!
A trifle is a very tasty dessert dish, usually made with layers of cake, cream and fruit. Of course there are many creative ideas to make one and I’m all in for experimenting with different ingredients. This time I’m making a ‘lemon cake’ trifle. This is a very quick and easy recipe so I haven’t actually baked a lemon cake. Instead, I have crushed some eggless cookies and added crushed nuts for some bite and lemon extract. It tastes delicious! You can use a real cake though. One layer is made of different frozen fruits such as delicious colorful raspberries, blueberries, pineapple, mango and pomegranate seeds. I use frozen fruit but fresh fruit is great too. Another layer is made of mascarpone and I have added grated coconut. The quite plain mascarpone is now upgraded to a cream with a delicious coco nutty flavor which adds more depth. This is such an easy, finger-licking good dessert! Bon appétit and Spoon that food!
