Berry Tiramisu Trifle

My obsession with tiramisu continues, and this time it’s a recipe for Berry Tiramisu Trifle. How yummy does that sound? I made a lemon berry olive oil cake from this author a while back, and it was just unreal. This Berry Tiramisu Trifle was instantly a must-try when I found it. I know berries are a summer food and it’s the middle of winter, but I just couldn’t resist this new twist on one of my favorite desserts. And I’ve never made a trifle, so this recipe must be tried immediately!

The Ingredients

There aren’t too many ingredients that go into this berry tiramisu trifle, and I didn’t have any trouble finding them at my favorite grocery store. The costs did add up, though, as the fresh berries and mascarpone cheese were on the pricey side. I also had to buy the eggs, heavy cream, and lemons. The total cost for all of them was just over $32.

I had a few things on hand like the vanilla, ladyfingers, sugar, and honey. I’m not sure how much extra those would be if I had to buy all of the ingredients at ones. I’d estimate no more than $10.

The Process

This recipe took some time and was pretty involved. Here’s how my time was spent:

  • 35 minutes for prep
  • 1 hour to cool
  • 1 hour 35 minutes total

My stand mixer came in very handy for this recipe and allowed me to multi-task. I started by putting in the heavy cream and sugar to whip up. Then I got the berry mixture started on the stove at the same time.

Once the whipped cream and berry mixture were cooling I got started on the mascarpone cheese. That was easy to mix up, but the key was adding a little bit at a time.

I followed the instructions and divided the mascarpone cheese mixture evenly into two bowls, then added the berry solids to one of those bowls. That gave me a lot more of the berry mixture than the plain, and I ran out of the plain when I made the trifles. I recommend splitting the mascarpone mixture so 1/3 is mixed with the berry solids and 2/3 is left plain. That should give you even amounts of both.

Lastly, I had to cut the ladyfinger cookies in half so they fit into the stemless wine glasses I used. Also, these glasses were pretty large (15 ounces each), so I only got three trifles out of this recipe instead of four. This recipe is pretty rich and filling, so I’d recommend smaller glasses or not filling them to the top.

This berry tiramisu was better than I imagined it would be! It was sweet and creamy with a slight pop of tartness from the berries. Even my husband, who is not a blackberry lover, was impressed. This recipe does take some time and effort, but it pays off. I just loved how pretty it was, and it really wasn't too difficult. It's something I'll keep in mind for our next get together--it would be easy to make the day before and it looks so impressive!
