Creamy Marscapone and Strawberry Trifle

Crème de Marscapone aux Fraises… This is one of my favorite quick easy dessert recipes! It looks beautiful. The marscapone is lightly flavored with lemon and the strawberries make for a perfect marriage of flavor and texture... Enjoy!

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

Ingredients: (4 people)

2 cups Marscapone Cheese
1 cup Strawberries>BR> 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
3 tbsp. Milk
2 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar
2 tbsp. Honey
1 Lemon

How to Make It:

1. In a bowl, stir the marscapone, sugar, and milk together.
2. Shred a little bit of the lemon rind, and stir it into the marscapone mixture.
3. Cut strawberries into quarters. Mix together the honey and vinegar.
4. In individual serving dishes or glasses, layer alternately the marscapone followed by a layer of strawberries. Repeat until finished. Then pour a little honey and vinegar sauce over the top.


You can use any other berries along with the strawberries, or any other fruit.
You can also replace the honey/vinegar sauce (it may sound a little strange, but really it's delicious!) with any other fruit sauce you choose.

Serving Ideas:

Even though this dessert can be made in about 10 minutes, do not underestimate its elegance... so, it's definitely the moment for crystal or glass serving dishes which will show off the beautiful layers of creamy marscapone and strawberries! After all, who ever said that quick easy dessert recipes have to look quick and easy?!
Of course, you can also prepare this dessert in one large serving dish.


Marscapone cheese is of course Italian, but is more and more commonly used in French desserts.

Ingredients: (4 people)

2. Peel and cut mango, papaya, and banana. Cut lime (with skin on) into very thin slices. Peel and slice ginger into thin sticks.
3. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add all fruits and ginger. Cook for about 5 minutes on a high flame. Then, lower flame, and add the vanilla honey. Stir delicately. If you want, you can flambé with rum. Serve right away, if you'd like, with sorbet.


Of course, feel free to change the fruits around, if you'd like to! I particularly like this combination because of the contrast in taste and also because the fruits don't take much time to peel and cut!
