My friend has been searching for this recipe called "Chantily Triffle". She says it contains layers of fruit and whipped cream, and sponge cake. She said it is to die for. Can anyone come up with the recipe? Would love to suprise my friend with the recipe. I have looked through all my cookbooks, and can't find a recipe like it. PJ

From the Inn at Perry Cabin — St. Michaels, Maryland. At the
inn, this classic English dessert comes with clotted cream. A
blend of whipped cream and sour cream is a nice substitute.

6 cups assorted berries
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
20 1/4-inch-thick firm white bread slices
3/4 cup chilled whipping cream
1/4 cup sour cream

Combine berries, water, sugar and lemon juice in heavy large
saucepan. Bring to simmer, stirring occasionally. Strain berry
mixture, reserving juices.

Line six 3/4-cup soufflè dishes with plastic, overlapping sides.
Using 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter, cut out round from
center of 12 bread slices. Trim crusts from 8 bread slices.
Trim crusts from 8 bread slices. Cut each slice into 4 equal
squares. Dip 1 round into fruit juices. Place in bottom of dish.
Dip 5 bread squares, 1 at a time, into juices; place around sides
of dish. Spoon 1/2 cup berries into dish. Dip 1 more bread
round into juices. Place atop berries. Cover. Repeat with bread
rounds and squares, juices and berries. Combine remaining berries and juices in
bowl; cover and chill. Place puddings on baking sheet. Top with another baking
sheet. Place heavy object on sheet. Chill overnight.

Beat whipping cream and sour cream to soft peaks. Unwrap puddings. Turn out
onto plates; remove plastic. Serve with cream and berry mixture.

Makes 6 servings.

That is an interesting version mbrown. To be very proper with this english dessert you use stale sponge type cake, genoise is really the best slather it with good quality raspberry jam sprinkle with med sweet sherry, this is very important to be traditional!
Toss with soft fruit of your choice putin dish and cover with creme anglaise.When cold decorate with lots of cream.
Yes clotted cream is the best.

My friend was so excited to get this recipe. She did say the recipe she remembered was with sponge cake. And she believes the recipe called for rum. She said the chef who make this recipe was trained in NYC and Paris. He went to school in both cities. Thank you again! PJ

I think I have seen that recipe with the rum that you are talking about. The chef layered raspberries,sponge sprinkled with rum,cream,a few times. It is a more up market version than the other one I posted. I remember trying it and it looked good as I used very large martini glasses. Tasted o.k. too.

Another way you could make a trifle is to get a martini glass or something larger and make a upside down charlotte royale and garnish with berries and cream.

It would be prudent to macerate the swiss roll with some alcohol, perhaps a kirsch or a grand marnier.
