Key Lime Trifle
Mon July 1st, 2019
The word "trifle" comes from the old French term "trufle," and literally means something whimsical or of little consequence. A proper English trifle is made with real egg custard poured over sponge cake soaked in fruit and sherry and topped with whipped cream. The recipe for trifle (and many of its now-heirloom glass dishes) came to America via the British who settled in the coastal South. Its popularity remained firm with Southern planters who loved indulgent desserts.
With some minor modifications, the Key Lime Trifle has made its way into kitchens across America and into the bellies of satisfied consumers everywhere (especially in the south)!
