I seriously though I already posted this recipe. I came back to look for it to show a friend, who’s Christmas party I am think if bringing this to, and when I couldn’t find it I realized my oversight. I am now correcting this. So without further ado…
- 1 Angel Food Cake, cut into 1″x1″ cubes
- 1 large can Cherry Pie Filling
- 1.5 Cups Lemon Curd (from the jar is fine, or make your own)
- 2 Cups Heavy Cream
- Use an electric mixer with a whisk attachment to whip heavy cream until soft peeks form.
- In a trifle bowl begin with a layer of Angel Food Cake cubes.
- Over the cubes, spoon in ⅓ of the cherry pie filling, spreading out to cover the cake.
- Over the cherry pie filling, spread ⅓ of the whipped cream, sealing the layer of cherries below.
- Next spread ⅓ of the lemon curd out over the whipped cream.
- Repeat until you are out of ingredients and/or your trifle bowl is full
- Chill until ready to serve.

Now you can pretend you don’t do this, but we wont believe you. Everyone, at some point in their lives, has licked the cake batter of the spoon/spatula/mixer attachment and savored that sweet primordial concoction of raw ingredients mixed together. (Yes, yes, uncooked eggs may cause salmonella, blah blah). I freely admit, I still do this anytime I am making a dessert batter.
By the recent surge in availability and popularity of cake batter flavored treats, I think I am not alone in my spoon lickin’ ways. Cake Batter Ice Cream, Birthday Cake flavor Milkshakes, and Cake Flavored Vodka, are just a few options now available to satisfy your sweet-tooth. When I happened across these Cake Batter Martinis by How Sweet It Is, not only was my eye delighted by the colorful sprinkles, but my mouth watered a little bit at the thought of drinking this sweet solution.
Cake Batter Martinis
makes a single serving, is easily multiplied
1 ounce amaretto
1 1/2 ounces Pinnacle whipped cream vodka
1 1/2 ounces creme de cacao
1/2 ounce Godiva white chocolate liqueur
1 ounce heavy cream
assorted sprinkles (nonpareils work best)
Using your finger, coat the rim of your glass with frosting – make sure not to miss any spots! Dump sprinkles on a plate and press glass rim into sprinkles, pressing to adhere. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for about 30 seconds. Strain into glass and drink!
There is already a trip to the liquor store in the near future in my plans (got to stock up for Dragon*con next weekend), and after seeing this, I think I’ll be adding a few more things to my list!
