Berry Trifle
April 07, 2008

First off, this is the ONLY dessert I have ever made where my husband asked for seconds...and he doesn't even like dessert! This was one of the best and most delicious recipes I have ever gotten from! I did, however, make the following changes: 1) In place of the cool whip, I used a pint sized container of heavy cream, whipped, and flavored w/ vanilla extract. I added approx 1 1/2 cups of the whipped cream to the custard mixture, and "frosted" the top of the trifle with the rest. 2) Instead of the blackberries, I used a 16 oz carton of frozen sliced sweetened strawberries in syrup. I thawed it in the microwave and spooned the syrup on the cake layers to moisten instead of the praline liqueur. 3) I made multiple layers of cake, berries and custard, instead of just one layer of cake on the bottom. 4) I used a 13 oz Entemann's All Butter Loaf Cake and it worked perfectly. This was SO delicious I can't even believe it! I definitely plan on making it for family and friends in the summer, when fresh berries are in season. Thanks for an AMAZING recipe!
