Strawberry Trifle

I made Sonshine’s Chicken and Rice Casserole for dinner tonight, and the Strawberry Trifle below. Both were really good and I suggest you try them soon!

 

Strawberry Trifle

2 pint baskets California strawberries, washed and hulled

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 cups water – divided use
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (3.5-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups whipping or heavy cream, whipped
1 (12-ounce) ready-made pound cake, cubed
Mint leaves (optional)

1.      Slice berries, reserving 6 for garnish. Place 1 cup of the sliced berries in saucepan with sugar and 1/4 cup water. Bring to boil. Cook 3 minutes; remove from heat. Mix cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water. Stir into strawberry mixture. Cook and stir until thick (about 2 minutes). Add lemon juice. Cool to room temperature.

2.      Combine sweetened condensed milk and remaining 1 1/2 cups cold water in a bowl. Add instant vanilla pudding mix and beat well. Chill for 5 minutes.

3.      Cut pound cake into bite-size cubes.

4.      Meanwhile, beat cream until stiff. Fold into the pudding mixture.

5.      Layer pudding, pound cake, sliced strawberries, and strawberry mixture. Repeat the layers; garnish with reserved strawberries and mint leaves.

Makes 12 servings.

Cooking Tip: Can also be prepared using stemmed glasses or individual glass serving dishes.
