Tutorial Tuesday- A Very Delicious Dessert!

Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

The ironic thing here is that I actually took a really great picture of this recipe (for once) BUT I accidentally deleted it I guess so this picture is from Kera's Cookin'

Anyways, this delectable creation is from my oh-so-talented mom.  She's made this a lot and EVERYONE loves it!  So here's how to make it. . .

- 1 1/2 cups cold water
- 1 package (5.1 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 12 oz pound cake, cut into cubes
- 1/2 cup strawberry jam (homemade freezer jam is BY FAR superior than store bought)
- 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries (Just a little tip- an egg slicer works great for this- and actually for mushrooms too)
- Additional strawberries

In a large bowl, blend water, pudding mix, and condensed milk.  Chill for 15 minutes.  Fold in whipped topping. 

Mix berries with jam.

In a 3- qt. Serving bowl, layer 1/3 of the cake, strawberries and pudding mixture.  Repeat layers twice.  Top with additional strawberries.  Refrigerate until serving. 

Yield: 12-14 servings. 

Additional tip: Use local berries (Spooners is what we have here, not sure about everywhere else) for both the jam and the dessert itself.  Store bought berries can be crisp and tasteless, bluh!
