Mamma’s Christmas Trifle

Trifle Ingredients:

  • Roughly half a cream cheese pound cake – Once it’s cool, cut about half of it into
  • cubes. (I slice and freeze what I don’t use.)
  • Mamma’s Vanilla Custard – (She also uses this in her banana pudding.) Let it cool just a bit, but stir it occasionally.
  • Your favorite fresh fruits – I use strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, and kiwi. Sometimes I just use strawberries and kiwi, and other times I use just the berries. Use the fruits you like the best. I typically use a couple pints of berries, a couple kiwi, and a cup or so of the pineapple. Raspberry Glaze – Make this by melting a jar of seedless raspberry jam over low heat and adding 2-3 tablespoons of Chambord.
  • Sweetened whipped cream

Trifle Directions:

  1. Drizzle some of the glaze on the sides of the trifle bowl—not much, just enough to make a few decorative swirls.
  2. Layer cake cubes, custard, and fruit, drizzling a little glaze on after each layer. (If you need more cake, slice off another chunk and cube it as you need it.)
  3. Top with sweetened whipped cream.
