Easy English Trifle

I know, I am so bad about posting to my blog. I wanted to share the recipe with you of a dessert I made last night to take to Gerry's bike club Christmas potluck.

Here's the recipe:
1 pkg (8 oz) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
2 cups cold milk, divided
1 pkg (4 oz) Jello-O Vanilla flavored instant pudding
2 1/2 cups cubed prepared pound cake
1/2 cup strawberry preserves
1 can (15 1/4 oz) peach slices, drained, chopped

Beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup milk in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add dry pudding mix and remaining 1 1/2 cups of milk, beat on low speed for 1 minute.

Layer half each of the cake, preserves, peaches and pudding mixture in 1 1/2 quart serving bowl, repeat layers.

Cover surface with waxed paper or plastic wrap.

Refrigerate several hours or until chilled.

This is a Kraft Foods recipe. I love their recipes, they are quick and easy. Here are some changes I make to the recipe.

The grocery store that I shop at sells the pound cake already sliced. I purchase 2 containers and use 1 whole container and 3 or 4 slices from the second one. I use 1 large can and 1 small can of peach slices that I drain really good and cut up in pieces. I like lots of fruit. I use about 1/2 to 3/4 of a jar of strawberry preserves. The last layer is the last of the pudding mixture. I smooth it over the top so the cake and fruit is completely covered.



  1. oooh Betty that looks yummy! :P

  2. Hey, Jalna and Les! This really is ONO and so easy to make. The fruit and preserves could be changed to something else.
