berry trifle

this has become my go to dessert recipe for large groups on warm days. I think I like making it so much because I get to use my trifle dish.

I made this on easter, and I think everyone really enjoyed it. It has a few steps but is really quite it has a lot of pretty colors.

berry trifle

1 large angel food cake (I use a boxed cake)
2 small pkg instant (or cooked) vanilla pudding
2 small pkg raspberry jello
3 cups hot water
1 cup vanilla ice cream
2- 10 ounce pkg frozen raspberries
3 bananas
1 pint heavy whipping cream

dissolve jello with hot water, in serving dish. add to hot jello mixture the ice cream and frozen berries.

let jello set at least 4hrs (or overnight)

while jello is setting up, bake your cake and whip the heavy cream (adding powdered sugar and vanilla to taste at soft peak stage then continue whipping until stiff peaks form)

once jello is set layer with torn angel food cake, vanilla pudding, and whipping cream.

cover and keep cool in fridge. once you are ready to serve, slice the bananas and layer on top.
