I am not a very big pie person ( although Mike and my mom are! ) , so I thought this dessert for Thanksgiving would be great!  It was to die for!! 🙂


  • 1/2 cup hot brewed espresso or strong coffee
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur, such as Kahlúa
  • Two 8-ounce containers mascarpone cheese
  • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • One 12- to 13-ounce store-bought vanilla angel food cake
  • One 1 1/2-ounce piece white chocolate


  1. In a small bowl, stir together the espresso and granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in 1/4 cup water and the coffee liqueur.
  2. Using an electric mixer with the whisk attachment, combine the mascarpone, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla at low speed. With the machine on, gradually pour in the cream, then turn the mixer up to medium speed and whip until thick and billowy but not stiff.
  3. Invert the angel food cake onto a work surface. Using a large serrated knife, trim the brown crust off the top of the cake, then slice the cake horizontally into 3 layers. Place the widest layer cut side up in the bottom of a 7-inch-wide trifle bowl. Drizzle 1/4 cup of the coffee syrup evenly over the cake, then spoon 2 cups of the mascarpone mixture evenly on top. Finely grate one third of the white chocolate over the mascarpone. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 2 more layers. Cover the trifle and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to 2 days.
