i tried this for a quick way to make a dessert, wouldnt call this an english triffle since we use fresh friuts and no pre made cream lol, i would call it the american lazy way of making a trifle , tastes good but isnt really a trifle:) my kids loved it :)
This recipe is awesome. Yes, it is the lazy American version...hence, easy and quick to make with lots of flavour. Who wants to spend all day in the kitchen anyway? I couldn't stop with just one serving. In addition, the mold holds up well, while at the same time melting in your mouth. I found using canned fruit cocktail made it easier to eat, as the pieces of fruit were not too large for eating. It was a hit with the crowd as well. A nice sweet dessert but not so rich, like cheesecake.
Great Recipe!! I used fresh fruit instead of canned, but the basics were EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thanks so much!!
A dessert made with gelatin, and then being called a Trifle. The recipe should be re-named to American Trifle. It is not bad to taste, but to call it an English Trifle is just such an insult to a proper English Trifle.
