Every year, for my roomie’s birthday I make her some sort of strawberries and cream flavored dessert. Most of the time it’s shortcake, but this year it’s trifle! I was all inspired by this recipe from the wonderful Taste of Home!
Soooooooooo yummy. Lemon pudding, angel food cake, macerated strawberries and whipped cream! God Bless the wedding registry, I love my trifle dish!
Celebrations are for indulgence, not saving money. I used all the good stuff here, whipping cream, fresh berries, homemade angel food cake! I trust that you, wonderful reader, can figure out how to assemble a trifle. Here’s a little recipe for lemon pudding if you, like me, are adverse to the box stuff.
Makes 3-4 cups – cost approx $2.09 per batch
- 1 cup whole milk ($.22)
- 2 cups half and half ($.95)
- a scant 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 2 eggs ($.28)
- 1/2 cup sugar ($.14)
- zest of one lemon ($.25)
- yellow food coloring, optional
Mix everything together in a sauce pot and put over low heat. Bring to a gentle simmer, stirring constantly. When all thick and bubbly, pass everything through a fine mesh strainer. Chill and enjoy!
