A cross between a trifle and tiramisu, this really is simple to do. You could use fresh raspberries to make it a quick no-cook dish

Oh so delicious! Could not get mascarpone so just did usual custard topped with whipped cream. A really different taste.

This was a huge success at my sister's birthday bbq. I made it with 'boozy strawberries' (strawberries in wine and a little sugar) and topped it with milk chocolate shavings. Yum! Plus the mascarpone and custard are a lovely combination.
I've been enlisted to make it again for 3 more bbqs!

made this with 1/2 strawberries and 1/2 raspberries instead of apricots for a friend's BBQ. NB they only need a couple of mins to soften in oven. decorated with grated milk and white chocolate instead of plain. V easy to make

Made this using frozen raspberries instead of apricots - it was demolished within minutes. Everyone was very impressed and loved the flavour given by the amaretti biscuits and the raspberry juice. Will definitely be making again, a very easy recipe
