I’m finally sharing my favorite fruit trifle AKA one of the easiest and most delicious desserts. This trifle holds a special place in my heart because my mom always made it for us growing up – and I’m still obsessed with it to this day. You can serve the trifle in a large glass bowl instead of individual mason jars, but the jars are very Covid-friendly. :-)
Ever since I tried Magnolia Bakery‘s banana pudding 10-plus years ago, I’ve been hooked. If you’ve tasted this dessert, you can understand the obsession. Although there’s a Magnolia Bakery just a few blocks away from where I live, the frequent banana pudding trips were becoming an expensive habit, so that’s where this homemade, copycat version comes in. For roughly $10 (if you shop generic brands), you can make this massive banana pudding trifle and share with friends and family – or just keep the whole thing for yourself. The dessert couldn’t be easier to prepare and aside from the chilling times, comes together super quickly!
It’s finally Friday!! Even though work has been super busy, this week went by painfully slow. I’m looking forward to the long weekend and plan on indulging in this banana trifle tonight. :-)
This trifle is as decadent as it looks. One large spoonful will surely fill you up, complete with apples and pears roasted in browned butter, creamy cinnamon pastry cream, silky pumpkin-caramel sauce and soft ladyfingers soaked in Sherry. Told you it was rich.
If you’re looking to impress guests on Thanksgiving, I think this dessert would do the trick. :)
