Fruit Trifle


Fruit Trifle

10 Min

Use angel food cake, pound cake, iced cake, or a combination! Make trifle whenever you have leftover cake (or even doughnuts or danish!). You can change it every time you make it, by changing the fruit, pudding and, of course, the leftover cake!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 (4-serving size) package instant vanilla pudding and pie filling
  • 5 cups cake cubes
  • 1 (16-ounce) can sliced or diced peaches, drained and juice reserved
  • 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple chunks or tidbits, drained and juice reserved
  • 1 1/2 cup whipped cream or whipped topping

What to Do

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine milk and pudding mix. Mix with a wire whisk 1 to 2 minutes, until thickened; set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized serving bowl, layer cake cubes, half peaches and half pineapple, then half pudding. Repeat layers, finishing with remaining pudding. Top with whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.


This is a fancy dessert that's easy to make - and it looks even fancier if you layer it in a trifle dish or other glass bowl, showing off the layers of different colors and ingredients! If you'd like, go ahead and garnish the top with fresh or canned fruit, cookie crumbs, or toasted nuts.

The recipe does not say what to do with the "reserved juices" from the peaches and pineapple.
