#BrunchWeek: Kiwi and Rose Cream Trifle + Day Three Links

#BrunchWeek Logo
Here we are at Day Three of #BrunchWeek. Inspired by Miche Bacher's Fig and Rose Cream Trifle recipe in her new cookbook Cooking with Flowers: Sweet and Savory Recipes with Rose Petals, Lilacs, Lavender, and Other Edible FlowersI made a rose-infused cream and layered it into a trifle with some fresh kiwi and rose petals. The cake is scented with saffron, elevating the entire dessert to an exotic, sensual treat.

1 C organic butter
pinch of saffron
3/4 C milk
2 eggs
1-1/2 C organic granulated sugar
1-3/4 C white whole wheat
2 t baking powder
splash of pure vanilla extract
6 fresh kiwis
3 C rose petal whipped cream
rose petals for garnishing

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter and saffron in a saucepan. Add the milk and let stand. In a large mixing bowl, blend the eggs and sugar until opaque and beginning to plump in volume. Stir in the flour and baking powder until completely combined. Pour in the saffron-infused butter and milk mixture and blend gently until a smooth batter is formed. Bake for 45-50 minutes until firm to the touch. Let cook for at least 30 minutes, then cut into cubes.

In a trifle bowl, layer rose petals, rose petal whipped cream, cubes of cake, and slices of kiwi. Repeat until your bowl is full. Garnish the top with more kiwi and more petals.
