Over the years this Lemon Raspberry Red Velvet Trifle has become one of my very favorite desserts. I especially love to take this to party’s, celebrations or simple get togethers. It fits the mood for everything. And because its cake in a bowl it transports even more beautifully!
A few Christmases ago I had this at a family party. It is a very fitting Christmas dish too, dontcha think? Red and white, maybe add some mint. My first bite was totally unexpected, and I totally LOVED it. The lemon and raspberries combined together was perfect. I took a bite of a lemony raspberry velvety dessert, and later I came for seconds, and then even later I begged my aunt for the recipe because my pregnant hormones could not stop my brain from craving this delicacy. Not to mention it is just plain (but far from plain) perfect for a valentines treat, is it not? And its so ridiculously easy.
