Baking Recipe: Raspberry Trifle Cupcake


This could possibly be your first thought "more cupcakes?" or maybe should try it with more enthusiasm instead "ooOo.. Raspberry Trifle Cupcakes?" It seems lately I have been bitten by the cupcake bug cause every time when I think of something to share with you, cupcake happens to just pop into my mind.

Okay perhaps I have gone out and not bake something this good in a conventional manner. Yes, I am aware a Trifle should be served in a trifle bowl and for this time I beg to differ. Isn't it fun to have some fun in the kitchen? It's sure a channel for me to relieve stress. The only thing I possibly dread most is cleaning up. LOL...
Basically this cupcake resembles to all the basic elements you find in a trifle. A good raspberry jam, custard and sponge cake. Raspberry Trifle is one of my dad's favourite festive dessert. So when he knew I baked them in a form of a cupcake, he went "really.. a cupcake?"

Now, this cupcake just needs a little effort, patience and love while assembling them. The baking part is easy, and if I say so myself; feel free to go with your found trusted vanilla cake recipe. And if you feel like using a pre-mixed instant cake mix, go ahead. Who's going to hold you to that? I sure wouldn't so long you get to spread the love of this little gem around. As for the custard, I cooked it from scratch and I think it's important to get a really good raspberry jam. The raspberry jam marry all the flavours together bringing the vanilla cake and custard to life.

Serve the cupcake with a cup of tea, espresso or even with a cold glass of milk. A perfect tea time treat as this cupcake is ultra moist and when you get towards the middle, you will experience the berry tangy taste softened by the mild luscious creamy custard. Let me tell you that the centre of this Raspberry Trifle Cupcake is the best part and it happens to be my new absolute favourite combo. Have a great weekend!!

  3. I thought I had commented on these awesome cupcakes ... well, here it is again. .. AWESOME!
    I love the filled center. I'm not a cupcake fan but this reminds me of a jam-filled donut and I totally have a weakness for those ... and now these!

    1. Thanks Ping! No worries, I am sure all of us may not be a fan of something.. but when it comes to dessert, that is my weakest desire. xoxo

  4. These are better than a big cake as far as I am concerned! They do look tasty-however I am partial to raspberries. Your description and your picture does make these a winner in my book-well done!

  6. LOL...just read the above 2 comments...Lola's and yours, Jo! When she mentioned sending by mail...you mentioned mailing; all I could think of picturing these yummy cupcakes...mushing them up, and stuffing them into a large envelope, yikes!!! not a very pleasant way of receiving them.
    I would prefer that you pack them with care, and carefully ship them the fastest way you can, but that would cost a fortune...which reminds me, that you could make a fortune right here in West Palm Beach Florida by opening up your own little "Cup Cake Shop"...there's a huge demand for it here.

    I'll have to post the amazing cup cakes stand from our Green Market that they take a part in every Saturday. You would be so popular there with your amazing, creative, gorgeous, and yummy cup cakes, Jo!
    Hugssss,

    1. oOO.. you are quite right Elisabeth! Didn't think of the squishing part. That would be a nasty sight of these adorable cuppies. Oh I love cupcakes, cakes, tarts basically anything from the dessert department. Cupcakes here in KL is like a trend. However I think I am still old fashion when it comes to good desserts ;p. Can't wait to check out those lovely cupcake stands in your next coming post. Till then, take care now.. xoxo

  7. Hi Sweetie,
    Glad I could give you the giggles in your cubicle, lol. Long couple of weeks, but hope to be back to normal by the end of the month. Too bad you aren't closer, I'd be knocking on your door for one of these. Hope you have a great week, don't work too hard.

  10. You know, I've never had a trifle before. I've only heard about a trifle on Friends where Rachel messes up at Thanksgiving dinner and she makes half a trifle and half a shepherd's pie. BUT your legit full-trifle cupcakes look gorgeous and oh-so-delicious. Raspberry jam, custard, and sponge cake are all winners in my book so I'm sure I'll be over the moon when I give these a try.

  11. Such very special cupcakes Joanna! You are so good at making sweets. I wish I have some of your talent. Next time you come to SF, I want to bake with you! ;-)

  12. Oh, I love trifle. The last time I was in London, I stayed a block away from this little bakery that was known for their raspberry trifle sponge cake (and yes, it was amazing!). I think it sounds even better in cupcake form... but then again, to me everything sounds better in cupcake form. :-)
