About Rasmalai Trifle

Rasmalai Trifle is a fusion dessert with layers of melt-in-your-mouth rasmalai-flavored cream, soft rasmalai, and sponge cake crumble topped with pistachio powder.

If you have ready rasmalai and sponge cake, this easy and fun trifle comes together in 10 minutes.

Instead of assembling the dessert in individual serving glasses, you can assemble it in a large tray and save some more time.

It is a great “make ahead” dessert for busy festive days. You can assemble and store it in the refrigerator for about four days.

Serve it for Diwali, Holi, or other festivals and special occasions or as a dessert for dinner parties or get-togethers.

Ingredients

For The Cream

To make the rasmalai flavored cream, you will need sweetened heavy whipping cream, saffron strands, cardamom powder, rabdi, pistachios, and rasmalai essence (optional).

I use non-dairy whipping cream as it’s easier to whip, but you can also use dairy cream.

Make Rabdi at home using my easy recipe or buy it from a local mithaiwala.

Sponge Cake

You can either make one at home or use a store-bought cake.

Rasmalai

Make it from scratch using my Easy Rasmalai recipe at home or buy from an Indian mithai shop.

Pistachios

Use good-quality pistachios. Grind them in a grinder to make a fine powder. You can also replace pistachio powder with almond powder.
