Easy trifle pudding

This has been in my draft for almost a year now. It is a trifle pudding recipe. I made this when my cousins came over for a meal. Actually, I had made a plain vanilla cake at home then.( Click here for plain cake recipe) But, I did not want to serve the same boring thing. So, I thought a trifle pudding would be more fun for a change.

The layers in the pudding were vanilla cake topped with a banana custard. Then came a layer of cranberry jelly. Then some slightly sweetened whipped vanilla cream and then some chocolate-cream-cookie crumbs. These layers were repeated.



  • Bourbon cookies - 6-8 (optional)
  • Plain vanilla cake - 1/2 kg ( click here for recipe )
  • Cranberry jelly - 4 cups ( recipe below)
  • Custard - 4 cups ( made according to box directions)
  • Chiquita banana -1
  • Heavy whipping cream-  1/2 cup 
  • Powdered sugar - 3 tspns

 Method for making cranberry jelly:

  • In a pan heat 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup cranberry juice.
  • Add 3-1/2 tspns of gelatin. When the gelatin has dissolved completely, turn off the heat. Add the remaining cranberry juice and stir. 
  • Cool and let set in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
Making banana custard and whipping cream:
  • Make custard according to package directions
  • When it is cool, add slices of Chiquita banana to the custard stir gently. 
  • Refrigerate.
  • In a clean bowl, whip cream to stiff peaks with powdered sugar. Let cook in the refrigerator.
  • In the serving dish layer some slices of cake.
  • Pour 2 cups of banana custard on the cake layer.
  • Then spoon some jelly as the next layer.
  • Then add dollops of the sweetened whipped cream.
  • Crush some bourbon cookies and make this the next layer.
  • Repeat these layers again.
  • Serve cool
