Kiki's Kitchen - Clementine TrifleCategory: lifestyle & food
It's a variation on trifle, a popular dessert in the UK. Original goes waaaay back (16th century) and contains sponge, fruit, custard cream and, if you're feeling naughty, a smidgen of alcoholic beverage.
This particular recipe is bastardized version of trifle courtesy of Tesco and then further bastardized by me.
Here we go...
4tbsp unrefined brown sugar
ginger loaf cake (I used this one by McVitie's...but you can also make your own )
200g Greek style yogurt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1) Peel 4 of the clementines, halve them and set aside.
2) Juice the other 4 clementines into the small saucepan, add the butter and sugar and heat until sugar dissolves. Raise the cooking temperature and continue cooking, stirring all the time until thick and syrupy. When cooked add the halved clemetines into the mixture, cut side down, cover and set aside for about 10 minutes.
3) Cut the ginger loaf into cubes and place into a glass serving bowl. Remove fruit from syrup and pour half of syrup over the loaf cubes. Mix together the mascarpone, yogurt, honey and cinnamon and cover the ginger loaf pieces with it.
4) Arrange clementine halves, cut side up, over the mascarpone cream in the bowl and drizzle with remaining syrup. Chill in the fridge for half an hour (or more). Tuck in!
