Ingredients for Pound Cake
1 c. Crisco
3 c. Sugar
1 c. Whipping Cream
1 tsp Vanilla
3 c. cake flour ( I used regular)
1/2 tsp Salt
Mix Crisco and sugar together, add eggs and whipping cream. Add last three ingredients. Pour into 2 "prepared" bread pans (grease pans with crisco and SUGAR not flour).
Place pans into a COLD oven, turn oven onto 325 and bake for 1 hour and 25 minutes. Let cool in pan.
Ingredients for Trifle
1 loaf of pound cake
1 large tub Cool Whip, I use low fat
2 (six serving) boxes of Jell-O vanilla pudding (using instructions on box for pie) I use fat free, sugar free pudding and skim milk
Fruit of your choice, I like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries
Cut pound cake into squares, prepare your pudding and chill and cut fruit.
To Assemble Trifle
Place a small amount of pudding in bottom of trifle bowl, add crumbled pound cake cubes and spread to all sides of bowl. Next add a layer of pudding, cool whip and then top with fruit layer. Repeat two more times. Chill in fridge for a few hours before serving.
Making the pound cake
I had a commercial pan that made one large cake instead
of two smaller ones. I love how this cake has a sugary crust.
I apologize for not taking pictures of the trifle building process,
my mind was too busy :)
