English Trifle

This is a recipe from my mom - she put this in the recipe book she gave me when I got married of all our favorite recipes growing up.  I love all the fresh berries and how light the dessert is for the summer. Perfect for a hot summers eve and looks fancier than it is to make!

English Triffle

Fruit - strawberries, bananas, blueberries, or raspberries

1. Cook vanilla pudding as directed.  let sit in pan and cool

2. Slice fruit and cube angel food cake

3.  Layer half of the angel food cake on the bottom of a trifle or class bowl.
