Trés Leche Trifle with Raspberries

Trés Leche Trifle with Raspberries: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

The other day I was trying to figure out what to make with some leftover heavy cream in my refrigerator and I remembered this recipe that I had found in some magazine and cut out to save.

This dessert worked out perfect. I happened to have just the right amount of heavy cream (I love it when that happens.) and I had frozen raspberries in the freezer. So all I needed was pound cake. I choose to use frozen pound cake, because it was easy and I needed the dessert to be easy, I would not have a lot of time to make it.

Everyone loved this dessert and I loved how easy it was to make. After enjoying this dessert I really want to make a trés leche cake. I have some saved to make, but I have never made one. It has just never been high on my list of desserts to make, until now.

Trés Leche Trifle with Raspberries
2 cups heavy cream
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
12 ounces frozen raspberries, about 3 cups
3/4 cup milk
16 ounces pound cake

In a large bowl beat together the heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in 2 cups of the frozen raspberries.

Pour the milk into a shallow bowl.

Cut the pound cake crosswise into 12 even slices. Dip both sides of four slices into the milk and arrange on the bottom of a trifle dish, cutting the slices as needed to fit. Top the pound cake with 1/3 of the whipped cream mixture. Repeat the layers 2 more times. Top with the remaining frozen raspberries. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
