Normally when I think of dessert I think of chocolate! Doesn’t everyone? But every so often I get a craving for desserts that don’t involve chocolate. Like creme brulee … it’s my all-time favorite. Today I’m joining a bunch of my blogging buddies to bring you Christmas sweets, whether it’s dessert or sweet rolls, you’re sure to find something you like so make sure to visit everyone (the schedule is at the end of this post). The sweet I’m sharing with all of you is Christmas Trifle!
For Christmas I felt like berries were the fruit of choice for the season.
Cut the cake into small squares and place a portion in the bottom of your bowl to create the first layer.
Repeat the layers one more time, then top it off with whipped cream.
You can serve immediately, or chill it for about 30 minutes.
Christmas Trifle is a light and easy dessert. When you’re rushing around making an elaborate holiday dinner, it’s nice to end the meal with a dessert that doesn’t take a lot of finesse or time to make.
1 angel food cake
1 six oz package vanilla pudding
3 cups cold milk
3 cups mixed berries, raspberries and blackberries
Small container whipped cream
1/2 cup sliced almonds
Make the pudding according to package directions, whisking the milk into the pudding mix. Cut the angel food cake into 1-inch cubes. Layer about 1-2 cups of cake cubes in the bottom of the bowl. Add a layer of mixed berries. Carefully spread 1/2 of the pudding mixture over the berries. Repeat the layers. Top off with a layer of whipped cream. Tip: If whipped cream is too stiff to spread, stir it vigorously with a spoon until it starts to soften. Sprinkle the rest of the berries and sliced almonds on top of the whipped cream. Chill for about 30 minutes and serve.
You won’t be disappointed!
And join me next Sunday for our regular Charming Home Series.
