Easy Mandarin Orange Trifle with Vanilla Pudding

This mouthwatering trifle blends light, fluffy angel food cake with juicy mandarin segments, creamy vanilla pudding, and Cool Whip, to make a dessert, which is refreshing on a hot summer day and equally able to brighten up a cool winter evening. Trifle recipes vary but this one is super easy, thanks to the cake mix, gelatin and pudding used to make it. To save even more time, use a readymade angel food cake.

You can use fanned strawberries, blueberries or more mandarin orange segments to decorate the finished trifle if you like and maybe you want to add some chopped berries to the gelatin when it is partially set (adding it too early means it will float or sink rather than be suspended). Sprinkles are also nice for a colorful topping. You can either spread the Cool Whip over the top or pipe it on to make points. If you are going to garnish the trifle with fruit or sprinkles, it is better to spread it with a palette knife or spatula, so the sprinkles or fruit can be distributed evenly over the top.

The angel food cake is topped with the mandarins and the gelatin when it is not quite set, so some of the gelatin soaks into the cake. On top of that you have a creamy layer of instant vanilla pudding. Some trifle recipes use vanilla custard but instant pudding is quicker to make and tastes just as good. The topping is Cool Whip although you could use fresh whipped cream if you prefer. Another thing you could do, if you know how many people you are going to feed, is to make the trifle in individual serving glasses, if you have enough matching ones, rather than using a trifle bowl. Use glass or plastic, so you can see the layers of the trifle. If you are looking for an easy recipe for trifle, this one is really good. Continue reading

Fresh Strawberry Trifle Recipe with Red Wine

A trifle is a dessert, which is normally made with fruit, custard, fruit juice or gelatin, whipped cream and some kind of sponge cake or ladyfingers. The ingredients are normally layered with the cake and fruit on the bottom and the cream on top. The first trifle recipes comprised a thick, sweetened cream, which contained rosewater, ginger, and sugar. This recipe appeared in the 1596 book, “The Good Housewife’s Jewel” by Thomas Dawson. The custard and milk was added, as well as the alcohol and cake, sixty years after.

The following is a very special fresh strawberry trifle recipe because the strawberries are cooked in wine, vanilla, and sugar, giving them a really sophisticated flavor. For a stronger flavor, add a little port wine to the red wine. Zinfandel would be a good red wine to use or something quite dry but fruity too. The vanilla cookies are unusual in this recipe. Trifle recipes usually contain cubes of cake or ladyfingers but the vanilla cookies work well. Leaving the trifle to chill for a few hours or overnight before serving it means the cookies absorb a lot of the juice from the marinated strawberries, giving them a soft texture and a wonderful taste.

This is a very easy fresh strawberry trifle recipe and the red wine and cookies makes it elegant enough for a dinner party dessert. If you are using quite small serving glasses, you might get ten servings. If you have bigger ones, you will get about eight. Continue reading
