Orange trifle

An easy to make dessert if u have all the ingredients in hand. I had wanted to prepare trifle for a long time and when I googled for it I found interesting recipes.I did not have a trifle bowl with me,but it came out well, tasted great and was a big hit with us.This is my entry for this month's AFAM hosted by Sharmi of Neivedyam.

Ingredients

Vanilla/orange cake mix or store bought pound/angel cake
Instant vanilla pudding mix- 1 medium pack
Frozen whipped topping-1 tub
oranges-5 peeled and segmented
condensed milk- 1 small can
milk- 1/2 cup

method

Bake the cake and prepare the pudding according to the package instructions.
Cut the cake into small rectangular pieces(2"x1").
Now everything is ready to set the trifle.
In a trifle bowl or any glass bowl arrage the cake pieces. pour some milk to soften the cake.
Arrange the orange pieces on top of it. spoon in some condensed milk on top of the fruit.
Pour in the prepared custard into a thin layer(thin or thick layer depends upon the size of the bowl.If u have a small bowl then it is better to have thin layers). Then add the whipped cream.
Repeat these layers once again.
Refrigerate and serve chilled.

Check out this interesting trifle from which I made mine.

i always assocaited trifle with bright colored fruits.. strawberries,mangoes..rasberries.. never thot of trying with orange. why don't u add orange juice instead of milk over the cake? does it make it too sour?what kind of oranges?

Prema Sundar said...

Yes Shaheen u can use orange juice too(thats a good one). I used navel oranges.. U can use clementines too.
