My blog is a food and lifestyle blog centered around the musings of a 27 year old millennial going through her quarter-life crisis…… think, Carrie Bradshaw and Martha Stewart’s secret love child.

Everybody has their story, but I must say that mine is my favorite. I'm a bit of a clusterfuck.... And when life gets to be too much I hit the treadmill, catch a plane, or bake my stress away. My recipe for success? I've embraced the madness! I'm a quarter cup of sugar, and just a pinch of crazy.

XO,

Simple Berry Trifle

August 14, 2017

My first time eating a Trifle, was about 5 years ago. A few of my friends and I were in college and rather than going home for Christmas break, we stuck around and celebrated together. Since we opted for a “potluck style” dinner, a friend of mine from Manchester, England said he would make a dessert his mother made every year….. Queue yummy Trifle! Although it is not an “authentic” trifle recipe, it is very simple and JUST as delicious!

 

 

 

Yield: 8-10 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes

 

Ingredients

1 pre-made sour cream cake/pound cake

1 package instant vanilla pudding

2 cups cold milk

1 8 ounce package of cool whip

1 cup halved strawberries

1 cup blackberries

 

 

Preparation

In a large mixing bowl, cut up the sour cream cake into cubes. I prefer to use either the sour cream cake or pound cake not only for the flavor, but because of how dense the cakes are. The contrast goes perfectly with this light dessert!

 

After you have the cake cubed, set that bowl to the side and start on your pudding.

 

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the pudding mix and cold milk.

 

In a large dessert bowl, add a layer of cake, berries, vanilla pudding, and whipped cream. Repeat with another layer of cake, berries, vanilla pudding, and whipped cream. Finish off with whipped cream and place a few whole berries on the top.

 

Serve immediately or store in the fridge until ready to serve.
