A trifle is an easy layered desert of cake, custard, fruit, glaze or jam, and whipped cream. You can make this so many ways. It’s just so easy to put together. There are many versions out there but here is a simple recipe that’s easy enough for anyone to make.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Trifle Dish
1 5.1 oz package of vanilla instant Jello pudding mix
3 cups of Milk
Strawberry Glaze (typically found in the produce department by the berries)
1 Store bought Angel Food Cake, pound cake, or sponge cake
1 Container Frozen Whipped Topping, thawed
Your favorite berries and fruit ( I use multi-colored berries for festive holiday trifles, as shown above) today I just used strawberries
Prepare your Jello instant pudding according to directions – 3 cups of milk and pudding mix. Chill one hour.
Add 1 container of whipped topping to chilled pudding and fold together
Cut your sponge cake, angel food cake, or pound cake into cubes
Slice strawberries and begin to layer ingredients into your trifle dish – layer of cake, custard mix, berries, glaze and repeat
Top with whipped cream, fresh berries, & garnish with glaze if desired. Really whatever suits your fancy at the time. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
