Recipe Tuesday-Desserts-Trifles

Banana Vanilla Trifle

Berry Pound Cake Trifle  

Getting ready for your holiday picnics, have I got two delicious desserts for you?  Let's start out with my berry trifle:

First, remove the cores and slice 2 pints of strawberries.  Add blueberries, raspberries and 1/2 cup of sugar. and let sit for 15-30 minutes. (Sorry photo was lost.)

Then, take a pound cake loaf and slice in half with a serrated knife. 

 Place top over bottom and cut lengthwise into 3-4 long strips (depending on how large you would like the cake cubes to be). Then slice the cake creating cubes.

 Layer first the cake, then the berries, then whip topping of your choice and continue laying until you have reached the top.  This recipe took 2 loaves of pound cake, 2 tubs of whipped topping, 2 pints of blueberries, 2 pints of raspberries, and 2 quarts of strawberries.

Another variation is to layer Vanilla wafers, vanilla pudding , bananas and whipped topping of your choice.

This trifle took about 3 bananas, 2 tubs of whip topping, 2 packages of instant vanilla pudding (or 6 cups of the ready made stuff) and an entire box of vanilla wafers.

Hope you have a lovely holiday!
