White Chocolate Raspberry Trifle





This recipe will make one large Trifle to be shared with about 6-8 people. The portions in this recipe are 50% smaller than I used in the video, and should fill a 3-4 quart trifle glass.


Bake a white layer cake, slice the cake in thirds to use for the layers


Creme Anglaise:

This sauce is a little tricky, with practice you will get the technique down.(see Creme Anglaise recipe/video for detailed information. (also in dessert chapter)


Separate the eggs into a glass or stainless steel bowl. Add the sugar and vanilla to the eggs, stir to combine. In a sauce pan heat the cream until it starts to boil, remove from the heat.


Temper the egg yolks by ladling a small amount of the hot cream into the egg mixture and stir with a whisk. Add more hot cream to the eggs and repeat until about half the cream has been added and the egg mixture is very warm.


Pour the tempered eggs into the sauce pan and return to the heat.

Stir constantly with a rubber spatula until the cream begins to thicken. Immediately pour into another container, and cool in an ice bath.


*Do not leave the sauce in the hot sauce pan because it will overcook and curdle.


Divide the creme anglaise between 2 bowls. Pour half the white chocolate in one bowl and half the dark chocolate in the other.


To make the Trifle, alternate layers of :

Raspberry Sauce, Cake, White Chocolate Anglaise, Whipped Cream, Raspberry Sauce, Cake, Dark Chocolate Anglaise, Whipped Cream, etc.


Be creative and create a design that looks cool from the outside of the glass. Trifle makes a really awesome Birthday Cake!

  • PROCESS: In a saucepan, heat orange juice and vinegar, stir in sugar. Cut the red peppers in half, de-seed and place in the food processor. Cut the jalapeno peppers in half and leave the seeds for heat. Puree the peppers. Add the peppers to the sugar mixture. Bring to a boil. Add the Certo and red food coloring. Stir well. Remove from the stove, cool and store in a jar with a tight fitting lid. *Certo is fruit pectin made from lime peels, it's used to thicken jams and jellies, you'll find it in the canning section of your grocery store. INGREDIENTS: 1 cup orange juice ½ cup red wine vinegar 1 quart granulated sugar 1 lb pureed red bell peppers 4 jalapeno peppers, pureed 2 boxes Certo 6 drops red food coloring
  • PROCESS: Place the peanut butter and butter in a large bowl. Beat with an electric beater until it is light and fluffy. Add the chopped peanuts and blend. Serve with Honey Molasses Bread and Red Pepper Jelly. INGREDIENTS: 2 cups peanut butter 1 lb. butter, softened ½ cup chopped roasted peanuts
  • PROCESS: Oat Mix: Heat a pint of milk in a saucepan until it boils. Add a cup of quick oats, 1/2 stick of butter and 2 teaspoons of salt. Cook very slowly for 5-minutes. Remove from the heat and allow it to cool to room temp. Dough: Place 1 cup of water, dry yeast, vegetable oil, honey, molasses, and ground ginger in a bowl. Allow this to sit for ten minutes so the yeast can bloom. Add the oat mixture to the yeast mixture mix with a spoon. Add wheat flour and mix with a heavy spoon. Add high gluten flour and mix by hand until incorporated. Pour the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, knead for 10-minutes. Lightly oil a bowl and place the dough in the bowl. Cover with plastic and store in a warm place for about an hour until the dough doubles in size. Punch down the dough to remove the air. Roll into golf ball sized rolls. Place two inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow the dough to rise again. When the rolls feel like little balloons, place them in a cold oven. Turn the oven to 350-degrees and bake until golden brown. Brush with melted butter immediately. *I like to bake this bread in a cold oven because the rising heat will finish proofing the last little bit of the dough. The result is Great Bread, don't forget the red pepper jelly and peanut butter! INGREDIENTS: Oat Mix: 1 pint milk 1 cup quick oats 1/2 stick butter 2 teaspoons salt Dough: 1 cup warm water 3 tablespoons dry yeast 4 tablespoons vegetable oil 4 tablespoons honey 4 tablespoons molasses 1 teaspoon ground ginger 3 cups whole wheat flour 2 cups high gluten flour Additional flour for kneading
