Vanilla Pudding & Strawberry Trifle

So the other day when I made Golden Pound Cake, I got a little carried away and decided to use the leftover cake to make a few mini Strawberry Trifles. Oh they were soooo yummy! Kinda wish I would've just made one large trifle to begin with it was that good. Kinda wishing I had one right now... Kinda thinking to myself that I may have myself a problem... and kinda thinking that the only way to fix that problem would be to go make another trifle...  

For the Cake:
Find recipe here
For the Vanilla Pudding:
3 Tbsp. Cornstarch
1/2 cup Sugar
1/8 tsp. Salt
3 cups Milk (whole is best)
3 egg Yolks
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 Tbsp. Butter

For the Cream:
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2-3/4 cup sugar

1 pound of strawberries (washed and sliced)

Combine the first 5 ingredients together in a large saucepan and whisk over medium heat.  Whisk consistently bringing the pudding to a boil and boiling for 2 minutes (the pudding will begin to thicken at this point)  Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and butter.  

Cool the pudding in the fridge for a couple of hours.  Meanwhile, slice the strawberries, whip up the cream till stiff peaks form, and cut the cake into bite sized cubes.  When the pudding is cool enough; either in 1 large trifle bowl or 4 glasses; layer the pudding, then cake, then strawberries, and then repeat. When you have reached about 3/4 way to the top, top off the trifle with whipped cream and a couple of whole strawberries.

  1. Oh, this looks delicious, especially with the homemade cream! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love that they are in individual cups. Great idea. You should look at my own strawberry trifle:

  3. I make something similar throughout the summer months! I don't do my pudding from scratch! Amazing! I wish I had one of those sitting in front of me right now!
