Almond, Blueberry, Raspberry Trifle Directions
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread all of the almonds (1½ cups) onto a cookie sheet and bake for 4 to 5 minutes or until the nuts just begin to brown and become aromatic. Remove from oven and let cool. Line the bottoms of two 9-inch cake pans with parchment or waxed paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
- Prepare the cake batter: Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Beat the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment for 5 to 8 minutes or until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping between additions. Stir in the flour mix, almond extract and ½ cup of the toasted almonds until just blended. Do not over mix.
- Bake the cake: Fill each of the prepared pans with half of the batter. Place the pans in the center of the oven. Bake until the center is firm or when the tip of a small knife emerges clean when it pierces the center of each cake, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool.
- Make the lemon curd: While the cake is baking, whisk the sugar, eggs, lemon juice and zest together in a microwave-safe bowl. Add the butter. Microwave for 4 to 6 minutes, stirring every minute until the mixture thickens. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and poke a few holes into the wrap with the tip of a knife to allow steam to escape. Refrigerate until completely cooled.
- Prepare the cakes, fruit and almonds: Slice the rounded tops of the cakes to flatten them. Carefully slice the cakes in half, horizontally, through the middle to create 4 layers. Stir the raspberry jam with 1 tablespoon of water to loosen the texture and toss gently with the raspberries. Whip the cream to medium peaks.
- Assemble the trifle: Place one cake round in the bottom of the trifle bowl, trimming the edges if necessary to fit. Spread about 1/3 of the lemon curd over the cake. Cover with about ½ cup of whipped cream and sprinkle with ¼ cup of the toasted almonds, ¼ of the raspberry mixture and 1 cup of blueberries. Repeat the same process for two more layers. For the last layer, spread the cake with the remaining whipped cream, berries and nuts.
- Fruit : In botany, a fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants that is formed from the ovary after flowering.
Fruits are the means by which flowering plants (also known as angiosperms) disseminate their seeds. Edible fruits in particular have long propagated using the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship that is the means for seed dispersal for the one group and nutrition for the other; in fact, humans and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food. Consequently, fruits account for a substantial fraction of the world's agricultural output, and some (such as the apple and the pomegranate) have acquired extensive cultural and symbolic meanings.
In common language usage, “fruit” normally means the fleshy seed-associated structures (or produce) of plants that typically are sweet or sour and edible in the raw state, such as apples, bananas, grapes, lemons, oranges, and strawberries. In botanical usage, the term “fruit” also includes many structures that are not commonly called “fruits”, such as nuts, bean pods, corn kernels, tomatoes, and wheat grains.

Blueberries are a widely distributed and widespread group of perennial flowering plants with blue or purple berries. They are classified in the section Cyanococcus within the genus Vaccinium. Vaccinium also includes cranberries, bilberries, huckleberries and Madeira blueberries. Commercial blueberries—both wild (lowbush) and cultivated (highbush)—are all native to North America. The highbush varieties were introduced into Europe during the 1930s.
Blueberries are usually prostrate shrubs that can vary in size from 10 centimeters (4 inches) to 4 meters (13 feet) in height. In commercial production of blueberries, the species with small, pea-size berries growing on low-level bushes are known as “lowbush blueberries” (synonymous with “wild”), while the species with larger berries growing on taller, cultivated bushes are known as “highbush blueberries”. Canada is the leading producer of lowbush blueberries, while the United States produces some 40% of the world supply of highbush blueberries.
