Easy Salted Caramel Pear Trifle is a layered dessert that you'll be licking the spoon wishing for more. Made with pound cake, poach Bosc pears, flavored whipped cream, crushed toasted hazelnut and caramel sauce.
Have you ever tried an easy Salted Caramel Pear Trifle? Then, you are missing an amazingly surprising dessert. Trifle is a traditional British dessert with flavored cream, fruits and a buttery pound or sponge cake soaked in sherry wine and custard, and topped with whipped cream. Since its original creation, this dessert has been evolving with many different variations over the ages.
For this Pear Trifle recipe, we will place four layers of texture in clear glass tumblers. The most important part of this recipe is poaching the pears in the sugary aromatic water for 15 minutes and then letting the pears cool down in the syrup. When you poach the pears in this light sweet water containing cinnamon, lemon peel and vanilla bean, the pears take on such a delightful taste. You can use these poached pears in so many different recipes, and as a final touch to take any “OK” dessert to a new gourmet level.
Now for the infused whipped cream with caramel sauce. I like to use gelatin powder in the whipped cream so that it holds the airy consistency for many days. If you don't do this, the fresh whipped cream will lose its fluffiness pretty fast.

Assembling the Salted Caramel Pear Trifle
Make sure to have fun assembling the trifle, but it must be done in this order: Add the pound cake, 5 thinly sliced pieces of pears, drizzle on the caramel sauce, and then the flavored whipped cream. Repeat these steps two or three times, and then finally top with caramel sauce and crushed hazelnut.
