Almond Poundcake Trifle

Hey everyone…

Today, I’m going to share one of my favorite desserts that gets nothing but rave reviews every time I make it. I’m telling you, EVERYONE LOVES THIS ONE!!! It’s an Almond Poundcake Trifle. This is more of a summerish type dessert because of the lightness of it but it is enjoyed year round. I just made this the other day and used frozen berries in the recipe but when in season, use fresh. Here we go…

Ingredients:

1 box Tastefully Simple’s Almond Poundcake mix

1.5 sticks of butter (you can use 3/4 cup of applesauce if you wanted to lighten it up)

1 six oz pack of vanilla pudding

3 cups of milk

4 cups berries

3 cups of whipped topping (you can use cool whip but I prefer to make fresh and I’ll show you how!)

2 cups milk

10 tsp powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

Let’s start with the poundcake. Preheat your oven to 325.

Melt the butter

Put them in a bowl together and mix. Once mixed, put in a loaf pan.

And into the oven it goes for 50 minutes (325) and this is what you get…

This is VERY important!!! The poundcake must be completely cooled before you cube it up or it will crumble. Usually, I make the poundcake the day before and throw it in the fridge the night before and it’s got a great consistency before cubing. This day, however, it cooled for an hour or so. Once cooled, cube it up.

This trifle will have 4 layers repeated twice: poundcake, pudding, whipped topping, fruit, then repeat. If you have extra whipped topping like I did, top it off with that.

Pudding prep is easy peasy. Pudding mix and 3 cups of milk whipped and put in the fridge.

Next, is the whipped topping assembly. Again, easy peasy.

Start with beating 2 cups of heavy whipping cream and slowly add 10 tsp of powdered sugar in along with a tsp of vanilla.

Whip till you have stiff peaks (no pic, sorry). This will take about 3 – 4 minutes.

Now for the layers…

1/2 of the poundcake, 1/2 of the prepared pudding, 1/2 of the prepared whipped topping and 1/2 of the fruit fruit

Then repeat.

And top with remaining whipped topping.
