Cherry Angel Food Cake Trifle

Cherry Angel Food Cake Trifle

I thought I would share my first attempt at a trifle dessert today.  My Mom has been making the most amazing Trifle for quite a few years.  I normally get this yummy dessert for my Birthday "Cake".   This year my Birthday was on Easter so I had to settle for a "Bunny" Cake...:)  But my Mom is great and she knew I wanted a Trifle so she got me a bowl instead... so I could make my own.

Cherry Angel Food Trifle

Angel Food Cake
Homemade "Sauce" (Pudding)
Cherry Pie Filling
Heavy Whipping Cream

First prepare the Whipping Cream according to the instructions on the carton...put in refrigerator until ready to use.

The next step is to make the Homemade "Sauce" Recipe...

Homemade "Sauce"

3/4 Cup Sugar
2 TBSP Flour
2 Egg Yolks
2 1/2 cups Milk

In a small bowl separate your egg yolks and beat slightly with a fork...set aside.  Then in a thick bottom sauce pan combine sugar and flour.  Stir together well...I usually use a fork for this step to incorporating the flour into the you don't get lumps.  Now you can turn on your stove to medium heat.  Add the milk slowly to the sugar/flour mixture so you have a smooth and not lumpy consistency...Once the mixture starts heating up....add some of the warn mixture to the bowl with the egg yolks... stir together to warm up the eggs...We don't want scrambled eggs in our pudding.  Bring to a boil...stirring constantly...cook for 5 minutes.

After you have the Whipping Cream and the Homemade "Sauce" prepared then you need to layer the ingredients in the Trifle bowl.  Start with the Angel Food Cake (tear into small pieces) then pour over the Homemade "Sauce", Cherry Pie filling and the whipping cream.  Make sure you finish it off with the Whipping Cream.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Not as pretty as my Mom's but it tastes just as good....sooooooo yummy. I just had to share.... :)
