Desserts that remind you of the Stars and Stripes aren't only reserved for holidays like Independence Day, but they definitely give any patriotic holiday a boost. Especially with this layered sponge cake (called a trifle); it's fresh, tasty, and, most importantly, easy.
With the hot weather during the summer, you simply can't beat this no-bake cake. You can prep your ingredients, put them in place, and you're ready to go – no need to use the oven and turn your kitchen into an unbearably hot place to be. And just because this cake is no-bake doesn't mean that it's any less presentable than a standard cake. It slices and serves like the most beautiful conventional cake you can imagine.
With just a few ingredients and no need to use the oven, this cake is super easy to make.
Here's what you'll need:
- An eight-inch springform pan
- Parchment paper
- Five cups of raspberries
- One cup of powdered sugar
- A quarter cup of orange juice (preferably fresh-squeezed)
- Ten ounces of mascarpone cheese
- One-and-a-quarter cups of heavy cream
- Half a teaspoon of vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- 24 ladyfinger biscuits
- Blueberries – enough to cover the top of your cake
Don't just relegate this treat to patriotic holidays, either. It's perfect for any time of the year, especially these hot summer months!
