Espresso Trifle is an elegant dessert for any occasion. Trifle is generally a dessert dish made from thick custard, fruit, sponge cake, fruit juice or jelly, and whipped cream. These ingredients are then arranged in layers. There are so many different ways to tweak a trifle recipe though, and one made with espresso is fantastic for breakfast, paired with a hot cup of coffee.
