Desserts are my most favorite part of a meal. And how many of you can really keep your eyes off the sweet corner at eateries? To all the events I go to, no matter how tempting the main course is, I’d rather focus on fancy-looking desserts. But, to satisfy my never-ending cravings I keep making delicious desserts at home every other day, a great treat for my family as well.
The berries trifle recipe I am sharing with you all is super easy, quick, and tastes irresistibly good. My all-time favorite! It will be a great dish to take for your next event, or friends’ pot luck. Everyone is going to love it, I am sure!
Regarding flavor, you can use any fruit combination in the trifle. You can try this recipe with bananas, strawberries, mangoes, blueberries, blackberries, pineapple fruit cocktail, or peach, etc. If you are making berry trifle, I would recommend using berries alone (no citrus fruits). However, pineapple dessert with fruit cocktail tastes great.
Things you need for trifle dessert
>1 pack of Pound Loaf cake, sliced
>1 pack of Vanilla pudding (2-4 servings, depending on dish size)
>Chocolate syrup to taste
>Strawberries, 1 box or more (for layers and dressing)
>Blueberries, 1 box or more
How to make a trifle dessert
Step 1: Cut loaf cake into small pieces, or you can hand crumb a few slices. Layer it at the bottom of your serving dish. You can choose any size that would cater to the number of people you are making it for.
Step 2: Top the crushed cake bottom with vanilla pudding. I layered it up with just two servings because I was using a small serving dish, that was not too deep either.
Step 3: Sprinkle heath toffee bits evenly all over the pudding.
Step 4: Add fruits of your choice; bananas, strawberries, blueberries, or pineapple, etc. Do not overload! To keep the flavors intact, I would recommend using one or two complementing fruits only.
Step 5: Add a generous layer of chocolate syrup on the top of the fruits. Spread evenly. You may add more cake crumbs and sprinkle some more heath bar toffee bits.
(You can repeat the layering process as many times as you like, depending on the number of your servings and the height of your serving dish.)
Step 6: Apply a smooth and final layer of cool whip on top of everything. Now you can decorate with strawberries, and blueberries or any other fruit you like. For me, strawberries and bananas work great as a combination.
(To make it rich, add cool whip to each additional layer of fruits.)
Cover with plastic wrap (saran wrap) and refrigerate. Do not freeze. You can make it a day before.
