Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Trifle is a classic English dessert typically made in a tall glass bowl to show off its beautiful layers of liqueur-infused cake, jam, fruit, pudding and whipped cream. Our trifle is made with quick bread and layered in a pan so the dessert is easily cut into squares.
For extra-rich flavor, prepare the pudding with eggnog instead of milk. No time for baking? Try frozen pound cake in place of the Pineapple-Cherry Quick Bread. Use one nine-inch loaf; thaw the cake before cutting it into 12 slices.
