  • ¼ C plus 2/3 C sugar
  • ¼ C fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 premade angel food cake
  • 1 pound cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 2 C heavy cream (at room temperature)
  • 3 C blueberries
  • 3 peaches
  1. Pull out the cream cheese and heavy cream and let them sit on the counter while you prepare the rest of the trifle.
  2. Heat the lemon juice, ¼ C sugar, and ¼ C of water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves (about five minutes). Remove from heat and stir in the almond extract.
  3. Cut the angel food cake into 1” slices. Generously brush both sides of each slice of cake with the lemon/sugar liquid. Then cut each slice into 1” cubes. (Err on the side of thinner slices and smaller cubes here, you need a lot of cake to make the layers evenly.) If you have extra liquid don’t worry, you can use it up later.
  4. Beat the cream cheese and remaining 2/3 C sugar with a mixer on medium speed until it is smooth. Slowly add in the cream, continuing to beat on medium-high speed until the mixture is smooth and the consistency of whipped cream.
  5. Wash the fruit and cut into small pieces. If you’re using berries they don’t need to be cut, unless they are large.
  6. Arrange 1/3 of the cake cubes into the bottom of a 13 C trifle dish (or a large glass mixing bowl). Sprinkle with a layer of blueberries (about 1/3 of the blueberries) and then scoop about 1/3 of the cream mixture on top. Spread the cream out evenly all the way to the edges of the bowl with a spatula. Top with a layer of peaches (about 1/3), and then add another layer of cake cubes. If you had remaining lemon/sugar liquid, drizzle about half of the liquid over this layer of cake cubes.
  7. Repeat the layers: 1/3 of the blueberries, 1/3 of the cream, 1/3 of the peaches, and finish with the last remaining 1/3 of the cake cubes and the last half of the lemon/sugar liquid. You should have 1/3 of the cream and 1/3 of both fruits left at this point.
  8. Top the last layer of cake cubes with the remaining cream, spread it out evenly, and add all the remaining fruit on top of the last layer of cream.
  9. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour so that the cream has time to thicken.
  10. When you’re ready to eat it, dish out with a large serving spoon into bowls and enjoy!
    On average, two restaurants a week closed in the year to the end of March, including casual dining chains, as well as upmarket and independent establishments, according to the latest data from analysts CGA and corporate advisory firm AlixPartners. Graeme Smith, the managing director of AlixPartners, said he expected restaurant numbers to continue to drop throughout the year as large chains in particular slim down. There have already been high-profile closures by burger chain Byron, Jamie’s Italian, Carluccio’s, the Prezzo Group and Sir Terence Conran’s Albion restaurants, but more large chains and independents are expected to suffer. “It’s easy to say this is a crisis in casual dining,” said Peter Martin at CGA. “This is a crisis happening for everyone.” Restaurants are suffering because the fall in the value of the pound since the Brexit vote has made ingredients more expensive while staff costs have risen, partly due to increases in the minimum wage. Economic uncertainty has stalled growth in the sector just as competition has increased after a surge in openings partly fuelled by private equity investment.
