This recipe comes from a Nov 2003 local newspaper clipping, in response to a reader looking for a recipe for a cake similar to one at a Hometown Buffet restaurant in Ohio. Preparation time is mostly the time it takes to chill & set up.
Wonderful rich cool dessert with fresh peaches. It came from a booklet, "Delicious Desserts Made Easy", put out by Borden in 1981. I keep losing my dog-earred copy so now I try to put it all on my recipe program.
This is the Williams-Sonoma Tiramisu recipe and I made it once for a very good Italian friend of mine who was renowned for her tiramisu. She quietly mentioned to me that she thought this was, in fact, better than hers! Never heard a complaint yet, a definite winner!
This recipe from Forepaughs restaurant in St. Paul, Minnesota, a layered cake-and-berry specialty in its tall glass bowl, is a holiday show stopper. Prep time is approximate and includes chilling. (This is an adopted recipe. I have not prepared this particular version of trifle.)
This Trifle is a layered dessert that has a German influence from the wine though the trifle is of English origin. This one has lemon curd which is also a favorite of the English. Given a tropical feel from the apricots, bananas, coconut, and nuts! Fusion I would Say so! The hardest part of making this is the microwaved lemon curd which take all of 10 minutes. This makes a good pot luck dessert.
Easy to make no-cook layered summer or anytime dessert with only four main ingredients; purchased jelly roll cakes (yellow cake with raspberry jam filling), pudding, whipped topping and fresh strawberries. You could make it with other fruit such as drained canned peaches,pears,or mandarin oranges, and vary the pudding as desired. I have also substituted the jelly rolls with chunks of angel food cake or pound cake spread with some raspberry or strawberry preserves.
