Trifle and Parfait Recipe Book (Paperback)

Trifle and Parfait Recipe Book By Hudson Hammond Cover Image


Parfaits and trifles top the list of snacks and desserts that are aesthetically pleasing. With sweet, creamy, fruit-filled snacks or desserts presented in glass jars and eaten with a spoon, it's difficult to go wrong. Are they the same, though? The answer is No. Even though trifles and parfaits have occasionally been confused with one another, there are a few key distinctions between the two sweet treats.


A trifle is a custard or cream layered with fruit, put over the cake, that has mostly been doused with alcohol. Traditionally, it's served at the end of a heavy meal. They were once made with a sweetened, cooked cream filling and crumbled biscuits or cookies. Now they are made with any filling of your choosing. Trifles are traditionally made in a large deep glass bowl so you can see all the layers of the fruit, cake, alcohol, and jelly variations


Parfait is a sort of delicious, frozen dessert. Originally, a parfait was made with layers of frozen custard. In modern times, parfaits are made with layers of sweetened flavored yogurt or with Bavarian cream. Instead of cake in a layer, granola is sometimes used. Following the Parisian style, the resulting pureed custard may be plated in any number of ways and is not relegated to a glass.

Fruit Fool

A fool is an English dessert. Traditionally, fruit fool is made by folding pur ed stewed fruit into sweet custard. Modern fool recipes often skip the traditional custard and use whipped cream. Additionally, a flavouring agent such as rose water may be added
