Trifle Celebration || 4th july

Happy Birthday America. Here is a dessert that is easy to make and is perfect for hauling to that cross town BBQ with some ‘Trifle in a Jar’. Make it with blueberries and raspberries and you have a red, white and blue dessert.

It is semi-homemade, with vanilla pound cake that was purchased from Wholefoods, berries from the farmers market and custard & cream

that was made from goose eggs and wonderful organic dairy products also from the farmers market. For an extra kick you can spritz the vanilla pound cake with some Madeira.

Here is the link to my favorite pouring custard recipe [click here]. The recipe states that the whisking on the stove takes about 15 minutes, I find it is more like 7-10 minutes. Oh and the goose eggs are so rich they make the custard a beautiful yellow color, if you do use goose eggs you will only need 2 for this recipe.

Assembly is really easy. Cut rounds in the vanilla pound cake and the rest is easy with layering of ingredients into the canning jars: cake, blueberries, custard, cake, raspberries, custard, cake, custard, cream. Put the lid on and then store them in the fridge for at least 3-4 hrs before serving, this way all the flavors meld together – delicious.

    These look great! I have some left over mason jars from a party I threw this summer, this is a great way to re-use them. Even though it’s not fourth of July… Glad I found this!
