Black Forest Trifle


Love is in the air. You all know what I am talking about.. It is Valentine's day. Happy Valentine's day, Friends!! What are your plans for this special day? Mine is pretty simple.  Hubby has work, Thaara has school. So we have planned a quiet dinner at home. For dessert, I prepared this Black forest trifle. Since I wanted to blog about the dish, I prepared it a day in advance and clicked and let it set in the refrigerator. For taste testing made one and it was over in few seconds. It was yum!! It is chocolate, it has red cherries, what more you need to represent Valentine's day. 
 I was looking for a easy to make yet elegant dessert and  got the inspiration from Reshmi's space. Then this afternoon when I was chatting with Priya she told me she has prepared the same trifle too. It is like we both are celebrating this day in the virtual world together. :)
And friends, there is something I wanted to share with you all. Many of you might have noticed, but still I wanted to inform you that our site has moved to its own domain. The new web address is  www.divyasculinaryjourney.com.  
So this dessert is for double celebration - for Valentine's day and moving to own domain.  



Now the recipe...

Recipe source: Reshmi Mahesh

What are the ingredients needed?
Chocolate cake
Maraschino cherries(in syrup), as needed
Heavy cream, 1 1/2 cups
Granulated Sugar, 2 tablespoons
Vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon
Chocolate shavings, as needed


How it is made?
  1. Prepare whipped cream - In a large bowl whip heavy cream sugar and vanilla extract together till stiff peak forms.
  2. In a small trifle bowl, first arrange the first layer of chocolate cake. 
  3. Then drizzle the cherry syrup (that comes with the cherries) on the cake. Then add a layer of whipped cream.
  4. Then arrange the cherries on top of this and arrange a layer of chocolate cake, drizzle some syrup and  finish with the whipped cream and sprinkle some chocolate shavings.
  5. Let it set in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours before serving. 
It yielded 4 trifle bowls. 


Notes:
  • For chocolate cake, you can use the recipe of Chocolate cake covered with chocolate ganache
  • You can even use store bought chocolate cake. 
  • If not making whipped cream at home, just get it from store. 
  • The number of serving depends on the size of the serving bowl.
