Incredibly Easy Strawberry-Lemon Tiramisu Trifle

strawberry lemon tiramisu

It appears that I forgot about this blog again, guys.  I think what happened was that I had a cold last Sunday night, and that’s my typical post-writing time.  Plus, I’m deep in dissertation-writing mode, so the last thing I’m really in the mood for is trying to come up with appropriate blog content!  That said, I did make something delicious that I should share with you: this strawberry-lemon tiramisu trifle!

I have a feeling I’m going to be posting nothing but unbelievably easy recipes for the next couple months.  Trying to finish up a doctorate is exhausting!  Plus, I know that I’ll be moving soon so I’m trying not to craft or garden too much right now.  It’s really killing me not to be starting seeds for the summer right now though.  But I know that none of the jobs I want are near me so I’m going to have to uproot myself, most likely in the middle of the summer.  I’d hate to have to either dispose of fully-grown tomato plants or transport said fully-grown tomato plants.  But maybe I can still have a couple eggplant?  NO!  Don’t be such a bad influence, reader.

So obviously exhaustion is making me crazy.  .  .

Today’s “recipe” is barely a recipe.  I mean, it’s just instructions to layer some stuff in a trifle dish.  But hey, whenever I make this people go crazy for it!  I feel like I’m going to have readers (okay, just my Mom) who think that marscapone is something that I need to offer a substitute for.  Okay, I guess you could substitute cream cheese, but honestly they sell marscapone at Walmart.  If they sell it at Walmart, I don’t need to offer a substitution option.  I have never been unable to find marscapone in any grocery store, so you should be fine.

Strawberry-Lemon Tiramisu Trifle

  • Two packages of lady fingers
  • Two quarts of strawberries
  • Three 8 oz tubs of marscapone cheese
  • One 8 oz jar of lemon curd
  • One cup heavy whipping cream

Cover the bottom of your trifle dish with lady fingers.

Now, spread about 1/3 of the lemon-marscapone cream mixture on top of the strawberries.

At this point, you’re just going to repeat the layers: lady fingers, strawberries, and lemon-cream mixture.  When I’m serving this at home, I end with a layer of whipped cream.  As I was taking this to a party, I ended with a layer of strawberries.

Here is where I should have a picture of this being beautiful.  Sadly, I did not take that picture.  The trifle fell over about five times in the car before I pulled over to buckle it in.

I was going to take a picture of the trifle in an individual serving, but was too busy talking to notice that people were already on dessert!
