Easy Raspberry OrangeTrifle

If you are searching for a fast, easy and delicious Valentine’s Day dessert look no further.

Delicious raspberry orange trifle can be put together in under 15 minutes.


Here are the simple ingrediants:

1 package of soft lady fingers (I found mine in the Kroger bakery department)

1 cup of good raspberry jam

The zest of one orange (used as a garnish if you desire)

1 cup of orange juice

1/2 cup of Grand Marnier liqueur

2 cups of fresh raspberries

1 cup (1/2 pint) cold, heavy cream

2 tablespoons of confectioners sugar

1/4 cup of toasted almonds (used as a garnish if you desire)


Begin by adding the 2 tablespoons of sugar to the cream and beat until soft peaks form.

If you have an electric mixer, while the cream is being whipped, you can begin the next few tasks.


If you wish to have toasted almonds as a garnish you can make them now.

Then zest the orange and juice it. *

*You can cerainly used boxed or canned orange juice but the flavor is not quite as good.


Open the lady fingers and spread the jam liberally all over.


Close the lady fingers and using a serrated edged knife cut into bite sized bits.

Place the lady fingers and 3/4 of the raspberries into a dish.

You can make either a traditional trifile in one big bowl or seperate the ingrediants into individual dishes.


Mix the orange juice and Grand Marnier liqueur together and pour evenly over the lady fingers and raspberries.

Spread on the whipped cream , sprinkle the almonds, orange zest and remaining raspberries on top of the cream as a garnish.


The dessert can be served immediately or refridgerated for up to four to six hours. If refridgerated the flavors will intensify but will be just as yummy!
