Strawberry Trifle My Way {Delightful Morsel}

I love strawberry trifle and was craving it. So, I decided to make it for a party. However, I never actually made it before and couldn't find a recipe that sounded perfect for my craving. Authentic British trifle calls for jelly or jam, but that makes it a little too sweet in my opinion (probably because, unlike British whipped cream, we Americans put sugar in our whipped cream!)

There's a tea house near my parents that my mom and I like to go to and I love their strawberry trifle. So, I decided to take the elements I love about it and make my own recipe (which is super easy with trifle).

So, here is April's Ideal Strawberry Trifle (and it's super easy!):

  • Pound Cake Mix (I personally prefer Betty Crocker's) and the ingredients it calls for
  • 1 Large box (about 6 oz.) of Instant Strawberry Jello (or 2 small)
  • 1 Large box (about 6 oz.) of Instant Vanilla Pudding (or 2 small)
  • 1 Tub of Cool Whip
  • Fresh Strawberries

1. Bake pound cake according to box instructions and let cool. Meanwhile, prepare Jello and vanilla pudding according to directions.

2. When cake is cool, cut into small squares (about 1").

3. Layer! Here's how I layered mine for my ideal mix of flavor- pound cake, Jello, pudding, pound cake, jello, pudding, Cool Whip, fresh strawberries (cut).

mmm. Most recipes call for Jello and cool Whip, but I love the pudding flavor which stood out to me at the tea house. Of course, theirs is made from scratch, but instant pudding does the trick for an easy dessert!
