Also, Mom says she doubles this recipe for Christmas festivities. All parenthetical notes are from her.
|A mini version of the real thing. From Google. Don't chya know?|
1 angel food cake (I prefer pound cake, found in the bakery or frozen section of grocery store)
1 large package vanilla pudding (COOK & SERVE), prepared and slightly cooled
1 large package berry-flavored Jell-o (I usually use raspberry)
1 - 10 oz. package frozen berries to go with Jell-0 (raspberries)
Whipped cream (or Cool Whip)
Sliced almonds (optional)
Prepare pudding and set aside. Prepare Jello-o half-way by just adding boiling water, dissolving by stirring for a couple of minutes, then adding FROZEN berries. (Don't add cold water) (It will start to thicken up immediately) Layer three times in trifle dish: bite-sized pieces of cake, partially-set Jell-o with berries, partially-cooled pudding. Top with whipped cream and sliced bananas (right before serving).
