Rasp-beer-y Trifle

Does anyone remember that RaspBEERy bread I made a while back?? It was a Raspberry wheat beer infused pound cake with a raspBEERy glaze πŸ˜€ It was gobbled up and basically licked clean by my volleyball team so I felt it necessary to make again.

Only this time, I wanted to make it into a trifle with my yummy custard recipe πŸ™‚ This trifle involved a raspBEERy bread layer, raspBEERy sauce, fresh raspberries, and custard πŸ™‚ It is a delicious combination of flavors and not so surprising, it goes well with the Raspberry Wheat from Twisted Pine Brewery. Though I thought something different would be better, the accompaniment of this beer helped to bring all the flavors together.

Bake the RaspBEERy Pound Cake
Since I was just using it for the trifle I baked it in a bread pan instead of a bundt pan.

Make the Custard
This can be made a day or two in advance.

Trifle Assembly:

Cut or break pieces of bread to fit into the bottom of a dish (make sure to use a clear dish so that you can see all the pretty layers). I only made individual sizes but there is enough bread and custard to make a large trifle for a crowd!

Drizzle with RaspBEERy sauce. This was a random concoction but it was about 1 T of raspberry jelly mixed with reduced raspberry wheat beer and a little non-reduced beer. I would play with the recipe or if you do not have time, you could exclude this but it made it extra delicious πŸ™‚ (Of course my amount was on a smaller scale and would need to be increased for a large trifle)

Add a layer of fresh raspberries.

Top with a raspberry and enjoy! Since it is the Fourth of July, blueberries could easily be incorporated to make a festive trifle πŸ™‚ For everyone in the US, have a great holiday weekend!

  1. Having turned 21 recently, this recipe seems amazing! xD don’t worry I’m not an irresponsible drinker πŸ˜› I still need time to get used to the flavor of alcohol… but this recipe definitely takes drinking to a whole new level! Thanks for sharing, hehe

    • Well Happy Birthday! It is a big one πŸ™‚ And yes, even those that do not care for the taste of alcohol can usually enjoy baking with it πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Ohhhh my gosh. This looks AMAZING. I would’ve licked the bowl clean too!! I’ll have to hunt for that raspberry beer. It looks delicious! Love the progressive photos too – completely drool-worthy xx

    • Ha ha, thank you Laura!! I was definitely scraping the little trifle dish clean πŸ™‚ I just love anything with custard and this combination was superb!

    • Yes I love trifles too but had never actually made one. Since I finally “mastered” my mothers custard recipe and everyone loved the beer pound cake, I thought I ought to put them together πŸ™‚ thanks so much!

  3. this is so brilliant, I can’t even πŸ˜‰ Love how you slip beer into unlikely places, then have it seem like such a no-brainer. Of course raspberry beer goes well in pound cake! But I needed you to come up with it first πŸ™‚
