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
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.
