Flashback and Foodie Friday ~July
Every Friday that I'm availabe I do Flashback Friday...I blog about something from my past whether it be an old post, recipe, picture, memory etc. Today I'm flashing back to last July so that I can get a preview of what will be blooming in my garden in a couple of months and what other fun stuff I might have to look forward to. Plenty of daylilies..
And clematis like this 'Etoile Violette'
Cosmos and yarrow
Gorgeous 4th of July sunsets on Puget Sound
And fresh fruit
for sweet treats
It's a "casual" recipe. Make it your own!
Adapted from several recipes listed at Tiramisu: Heaven in Your Mouth
I kind of winged it, so this is just a rough outline
For the berry layer:
Strawberries (lets call it a pint)
Raspberries (and probably a half pint)
Sugar (this I leave up to you)
For the cream layer:
Marcarpone Cheese (I used 4 oz)
Heavy Cream (I used 2 cups)
Powdered Sugar (I used 1/4 cup)
Grand Marnier (I used 1 Tbls)
Marsala Wine (I used 1 Tbls)
Store bought Angel Food Cake
Slice strawberries & combine with raspberries, sugar (to taste), a couple tablespoons of Grand Marnier & Marsala. Let set until plenty of liquid has been created. Once berries are ready, combine ingredients for cream layer and beat until thick. Start layers with angel food cake cut in pieces to match your container. Drizzle berry juice and a layer of berries to saturate cake layer, then a layer of cream and continue in this fashion. I had three layers. You can't see the top berry layer because it's behind the ribbon and lid. This would have been great with a blueberry layer..staying in theme, but I didn't have any on hand.
Hope you enjoyed the flashback. If you have one of your own...anything at all..add your link below and then link back to me on your blog. Feel free to grab the logo!
