Strawberry Banana Cream Mudslide Trifle

A fluffy cream filling over light sponge cake saturated with Kahlua Mudslide Liqueur

Looks really fancy but a quick throw together when you have unexpected company or a pot luck to go to.

1 fresh pound of sliced strawberries
2 sliced bananas
1 pint blueberries washed
sponge cake recipe  click here (you can also use store bought lady fingers or sponge cake rounds found in the produce fruit section of your grocery store)
Kahlua Mudslide Liqueur around 1/4 cup more if you like (for non liqueur cake use strong coffee mixed with favorite flavored creamer, like Irish Cream found in your local grocery dairy sections)
1 small package instant banana cream pie filling
1 8oz container of whipped topping thawed
strawberry jam heated in the microwave till it turns to liquid around 12 seconds (or use some strawberry ice cream topping found in the ice cream section of your grocery store.)

In a medium size bowl make banana cream instant pudding using only 1-3/4 cups of whole milk. Beat till thick.  Gently fold in thawed whipped topping and set aside.

In a trifle bowl or any other deep dish bowl, line bottom with small pieces of sponge cake. Drizzle mudslide liqueur on each piece. Next layer evenly with sliced strawberries, blueberries and sliced bananas, drizzle with some strawberry syrup (just a few teaspoons on the fruits.) Spoon half of the banana cream topping over all of this. Begin again starting with the sponge cake layer, as above repeated ending with cream mixture. Garnish with strawberries, drizzle some syrup. A great dessert!

Your trifle sounds scrumptious Claudia! I haven't had one in so long I have a craving now.

Drick said...

oh Claudia, I so need this treat, if only to make me feel good and to think of you - I feel like I am so behind, not too much of a good friend these days...so busy and I apologize for not being a good foodie buddy... this trifle is just what the Dr ordered... and too, tell me the pattern of that glassware, it looks like depression-ware era glass and beautiful... I used to deal in antiques and 50's glass...
