I love making desserts, so when I received a new batch of recipes from one of my favorite baking companies, Lucky Leaf, I was eager to start baking. I’ve been using Lucky Leaf Premium pie fillings for a variety of baking adventures, including pies, tarts, and cakes. For this baking adventure I decided to make their Layers of Love Cherry-Choco Trifle. As an extra twist, I swapped out their amazing strawberries instead of cheery. I would be making a Layers of Love Strawberry-Choco Trifle.
After a quick trip to the grocery store, I was ready to begin cooking. First up, the chocolate cake which would be the first layer of my trifle. I should have known from the beginning that something wasn’t right – the chocolate didn’t smell like chocolate, the house didn’t smell like baking cake, the whole thing just smelled off. I don’t even know what happened, but the finished product tasted horrible and went right into the trash. The trifle recipe soon became Layers of Love Strawberry-Choco Trifle with Butter Cake instead of Chocolate Cake. Happily the butter cake came out perfectly. After letting it cool, I sliced the cake up into cake squares.
While the cake was baking, I made the pudding that was now the “choco” of this trifle. I was able to get the pudding made and into the fridge for cooling.
About an hour later, I had all of my ingredients ready in a row to assemble in the Layers of Love Strawberry-Choco Trifle with Butter Cake instead of Chocolate Cake. I tried to find a trifle bowl at the store and wasn’t able to hunt one down. Instead I found these really cute individual bowls that I could use to make mini trifles!
A layer of cake, a layer of Lucky Leaf strawberry pie filling, a layer of pudding, a layer of Cool Whip. Repeat and in a jiffy you have these:
I added a little twist to some of them, by just having the cake, strawberry pie filling and cool whip, making strawberry shortcake-like trifles.
They were delicious. Like seriously delicious. I won’t even tell you how many of these I ate. No I won’t. But with cake, fruit, whipped cream and chocolate, can you really go wrong?
