Angel Food Trifle

Since it's Valentine's week, I think I'll share a couple other sweet treat recipes!
This one is for Angel Food Trifle.
Back in the summer, I had a angel food cake & needed to come up with a quick dessert for family night.
Slicing up the cake & eating it plain would have been simply delicious, but I knew I could use it
as a base for something cold & fruity, which is what I was in the mood for.


I made a box of vanilla pudding first.
I love that as a dessert ingredient!
It comes together right before your eyes, so quick & simple.
Next, I began layering all the ingredients with the angel food cake that I tore into large pieces:
cake, pudding, banana, pineapple, cherries, & blueberries.
At the end, I topped it off with a layer of whipped topping.

Now, what's kind of comical about this dessert & it's title, I don't own a trifle dish!
Otherwise, I might have taken a more blog-worthy photo
(or maybe not because I general forget to take photos until after the fact).
So, my angel food trifle was actually made in a large bowl, but calling it an 'angel food bowl'
just isn't any fun at all!

The evening I served this dessert, we ate dinner with all our family out on the patio.
(It's a great summertime dessert cause it's cold & refreshing!)
After Abigail (our DIL) finished up, she said she thinks this was her favorite dessert that I have made!
It checked all the right boxes for her ... & I'm pretty sure I need to make it for her again soon.

I know it's not warm outside, at least in my neck of the woods,
but this would make a fun Valentine dessert to make this week!
You could even serve it in individual clear punch cups & stick a cherry right on top.

Thanks for visiting & lots of love to all of you!
