There are lots of possibilities by just changing up the kind of cake, pudding and fruit you use. We really liked this one and since it's peach time we thought we would share it.
Our other favorite was one we like to call Orange Sticks Trifle that we made a few years back. You will find that version just below this recipe. (Sorry I don't have a good picture this was a few years back and for some reason I didn't have one without a kid or their fingers in it. ;)
I've been thinking that this German Chocolate Cake Recipe would also be a good one to use in some kind of trifle. Without the frosting of course.
I'm sure most of you will be able to make your look much prettier than mine. I'm usually about throwing things together and not so focused on presentation.
Ryan (my husband) is actually better at making food look nice. I'm all about making it taste good. We make a pretty good team.......but he's not very often available to help in the Kitchen. So we settle for taste.
Peach Raspberry Trifle
1 recipe "Banana Creme Pie" JUST the pudding filling made
1 package fresh raspberries
5-6 large fresh peaches, sliced and skins removed
In a trifle bowl layer cake, pudding, fruit and caramel sauce in that order. Takes about 4-6 layers just be sure to end with a drizzle of caramel sauce on top.
NOTE: With an Banana Creme Pie filling you will want to be sure to leave out any banana flavor. And obviously you won't need the pie crust or the bananas. Oh but bananas would be good in a trifle maybe with strawberries.......Oh yeah could be good!
1 recipe "Chocolate Mousse" made with the orange extract
1 recipe "My Favorite Whipped Creme"
2-4 cans Mandarin oranges in 100% juice
In a trifle bowl layer cake, pudding, whipped creme and oranges in that order. Takes about 4-6 layers just be sure to end with the oranges on top.
