Tiramisu Trifle~Ice Cream Social 2012

I always look forward to this event. This is the third (fourth?) year that I've participated. The weather has not cooperated this year and neither has the grocery store. Because it is raining, picture taking is a challenge and the store had no lady fingers! Horrors! How is a gal supposed to pull off an elegant dessert without them? I seriously considered whipping up a batch, but came to my senses. I settled for pound cake instead.



Tiramisu Sundaes

Lady Fingers Recipe (This recipe does not require piping. It makes the lady finger batter into cupcakes.)

My Very Simple Recipe

* coffee ice cream
* purchased pound cake soaked in a bit of coffee and flavoring (coffee brandy would be lovely; I had something else. ☺)
* whipped cream
* mini chocolate chips for garnish

Simply layer all ingredients in some lovely stemware ending with whipped cream on top and the chocolate.

It made a delicious "breakfast" now let me tell you! That's the look of the first hmmmmmm...

Thank you, Suzy, for another fun year of socializing over ice cream.

Join the fun at Kitchen Bouquet!

Love Vee

  2. I'm just making the rounds today...a little tiramisu sundae over here and some blackberry ice-cream over there (Mennonite Girls Can Cook). It's a good day to have ice-cream for breakfast!

    Your trifle sundae looks great.

  9. Oh-my-gracious! What a Breakfast! That's enough decadence, to last the whole week. -gigggggles-

    Thank you for the lose-my-cold-wishes, but I don't have a cold. That "Mucus Relief" bottle (in my blog entry) is just what I take daily. Along with regular stuff for allergies. It's all due to the 24/7 allergies.

    Wheeeeeeee....

    But his ear is getting better. So we are making progress, on that part of the Health Wars. ,-)
