Ingredients of this lemon and cream trifle
This lemon and cream trifle uses the recipe of Maple Cake which is light and heartful cake. Please remember to make the whipped cream properly as it is the main ingredient of this dish. Also, I keep on repeating this time and again, getting your lemon zest right is essential for any recipe that uses lemon zest. For this lemon and cream trifle, lemon zest happens to be the primary ingredient as it is what imparts the soft lemony texture to this trifle. For the same, do not grate the lemon beyond the yellow part as the white part is bitter and changes the taste and also use a micro grater for best results.
