Mike Adamick’s Mini Trifle is an Easy Hit With the Kids
Today we share another great recipe from Mike Adamick’s Dad’s Book of Awesome Recipes. As you enjoy the weekend with your kids, don’t forget that gathering time around food is a great way to bond and get to know your kids better than ever. Times like these won’t be forgotten and most certainly outweigh the novelty of material gifts.
Do It Yourself Mini Trifle
Makes: 1 serving
I love DIY trifles not just because they’re easy and delicious, but because you can add so much fruit that they become a colorful bonanza of goodness. Kids like to make these all by themselves because it’s as easy as slicing and dicing and then stacking everything together. So sit back after dinner and let your little chef whip up something fabulous for dessert. This is a wonderful starter dessert since it’s no-bake.
Here’s what you need:
Parfait glass (a tall drinking glass will do fine), spoon, knife, cutting board, measuring cups
1 slice pound cake
1/2 cup whipped cream
1/2 cup blueberries
Granola (for an optional crunchy top)
Here’s what you do:
- Slice the pound cake into cubes. That’s seriously the hard part.
- Now start to fill your glass with alternating ingredients. Add a layer of some cake, and then some fruit, and then some whipped cream, and then repeat the whole layering process all the way up the glass.
- Keep a little whipped cream for the top. Sprinkle on some granola for crunch to finish it off, or not. Up to your chef.
