Trifle is always a crowd pleaser. This one is as beautiful to look at as it is to eat.
- 2 x packs frozen mixed berries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 unfilled sponge cake
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 cup cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 600g mascarpone
Combine berries with sugar in a large saucepan and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes syrupy. Remove from heat and set aside to cool completely.
Meanwhile, tear 1 unfilled sponge cake into large pieces and place over the base of a large glass bowl. Drizzle with orange juice then spoon half the berry mixture over the sponge layer. Place cream, vanilla extract, brown sugar and mascarpone in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Spoon cream mixture over the berry mixture. Top with remaining berry mixture and serve.
