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. But today – it’s about a holiday classic – Christmas trifle with mixed berries.
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.
Christmas Trifle with Berries
- 1 angel food cake
- 1 6 oz. package vanilla pudding
- 3 cups cold milk
- 3 cups mixed berries raspberries and blackberries
- 1 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.
