Seven Fruit Trifle
These are great for summer parties with all the great fruits in season now. Feel free to experiment with different fruit combinations.
1 (9 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained
2 firm bananas, sliced
2 peaches, peeled and sliced
2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup raspberries
1/2 cup blueberries
2 kiwi, peeled and sliced
2 cups cold milk
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon sugar
Prepare and bake yellow cake mix according to the package directions using a 9 inch round pan. Cool and then cut into one inch cubes.
In a bowl, mix together the pineapple, bananas, peaches, and half of the strawberries.
In another bowl, whisk milk and the pudding mix for two minutes. Then let stand for about 2 minutes or until it begins to set.
In a mixing bowl, beat the whipping cream until soft peaks begin to form. Add sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
In a large trifle bowl, layer half of the cake cubes, then the fruit mixtures and pudding and whipped cream. Repeat the layers to fill the bowl. Garnish with the blueberries, kiwi and remaining strawberries. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours and then serve.
