Individual Black Forest Trifle

September, 2019

Trifle is one of those desserts that looks like a masterpiece—until you start spooning it out. The solution: individual trifles. Perfectly layered, perfectly portioned, perfectly delicious.

2 cups whipping cream

3 tbsp icing sugar

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 pan of your favourite chocolate cake (or brownies)

1 can of cherry pie filling

2 cups of vanilla pudding

Chocolate, for shaving

Blackberries or cherries, for garnish

Set up an assembly line of 6 to 8 serving glasses (few glasses = more trifle per serving). Next, ready the ingredients: whip the cream with the icing sugar and vanilla, cut up the cake into cubes, open the cherry pie filling and the vanilla pudding. Starting and ending with whipped cream, create layers of cream, cake, cherry pie filling and pudding until the glasses are full. Sprinkle the tops with chocolate shavings, and garnish with fresh blackberries or cherries. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
