Just like I had promised in my previous post, here is the recipe for the strawberry trifle. Although I've never had an authentic English strawberry trifle, I bet this one comes pretty dang close! Jacob, when he lived in England, absolutely loved this dessert and I guess there's a good reason why! Layers of vanilla pudding, whipped cream, strawberries and cake drenched in strawberry jam make up this luscious treat. Although this dessert is fairly simple to make, it is so delicious and never fails to impress!
Strawberry trifle is the perfect dessert to serve after a hearty English roast, but I'll warn you it is pretty rich so take it easy on the portions (my stomach is still mad at me for eating too much!). Trifle is also commonly made with chocolate pudding (or custard) and a variety of fruits including raspberries, blueberries and bananas. Don't be afraid to experiment and change this recipe up a bit!
