Berry Trifle Cups-Fathers Day Special

What is Trifle?  It is an English dessert made with sponge cake, fruits, custard and vanilla pudding layered in a glass trifle bowl which is deep so all the layers are clearly visible.  There are different types of cakes can be used such sponge cake, pound cake, or lady fingers.  You can your choice of fruit and originally they used alcohol too.

IMG_2321This Father’s Day, I bring you an individual Berry Trifle Cups which came out super delicious and loved by all.  It was so good to hear the praises from everyone.   I learned this from my Mom and all the credit goes to her.   I was actually impressed to see how the individual came out.


Without further delay I would like to share how I made it.  This recipe is not completely from scratch but can be made either way.  You can serve this at any occasion, specially it has the colors of the US flag, so it make a perfect July 4th’s dessert with red, white and blur colors.

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf of pound cake (used store bought)
  • fresh strawberries (washed and sliced)
  • blueberries, washed
  • 1 cup pastry cream
  • 2 quarts heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar or to taste
  • cool whip cream

Directions:

First of all cut the cake you are using into cubes or you can’t cut into small roundels and place in in the individual disposable wine glasses.

In an electric mixer start whipping the heavy cream with the pastry cream powder and whip it until it is blended well.  Add powdered sugar to it and blend a few times more.  The consistency shouldn’t be too thick.  It should be a little runny so it seep through the cake.

Cut the fresh strawberry slices and set aside.

Now we are going to assemble it all together.  You have already placed the cake in the cups and now we will be pouring the pastry cream, say about 2-3 tablespoons or more.  Then place 2-3 slices of strawberries along with a few pieces of cake.

Then pour more cream on top it.  Now using a piping bag and the tip of your choice, make a rosette with whip cream on top.  Place blueberries however you want it to get the desired look.

Place it in the refrigerator for a few hours so that the cream seeps through and everything is set.  Serve cold.
