Tiny Kumquat Madeleine Citrus Curd Condensed Milk Trifle with ...
Alright, I was tempted to add something else to the title just for effect, but the actual elements are funny enough. I had all these elements on hand for various reasons the other day when I really needed something sweet. It is very rare that I yearn for a sweet, but when I do I lean towards the tooth-shattering. I had made kumquat madeleines as a gift. We also have more condensed milk at home than a Vietnamese coffee stand. Why? Lord knows. But, thanks to the French colonists of Indochine, we know that condensed milks lasts pretty well. And, then orange/lemon curd was quick to whip up.
The result was both refreshing and shockingly sweet. In the future, should somehow this perfect storm of citrus appear again in my refrigerator will I make this? Heck yeah. I have already come up with a plan to make up 15 or so for a late winter's brunch (when citrus is back in season).
This trifle is also my entry for this month's sugar high fridays: Citrus, an event started by Jennifer of The Domestic Goddess and run this month by Tartelette.
Blah blah blah Trifles
In a small cup or even a votive candle holder (as picture), layer madeleines [made in a mini-mold or with teaspoons (as invented by Aaplemint)] with cream or whipped cream and citrus curd.
Condensed Milk Cream
Mix vigorously 1/4 cup greek yoghurt with 1 T condensed milk.(This is good for 2 mini-trifles)
I followed this recipe from Fine cooking but halfed it. Also I used half lemon juice and half orange juice(This is good for 2 mini-trifles)
