How I came up with this plum trifle recipe.
One morning, I was once again in front of my fridge, and I saw I had some whipping cream and some mascarpone cheese with their expiration dates were approaching. I had a craving for an orange Portuguese cake, but no use for my poor cheese and whipping cream in that recipe! So I started thinking if I can make something like an orange cake (because that’s what my soul was asking for), but with Mascarpone cheese and whipping cream? I thought maybe a Christmas log, an orange cake with cream cheese icing, a trifle, or a cheesecake? I couldn’t make up my mind, something was missing, no inspiration.
