Just made a delicious, simple and inviting trifle for our family for Memorial Day   and thought I would share it with you.  It is so easy and fast, quickly drawing a crowd of ohs and ahs.  I call it Raspberry Cream Trifle but you can add any fruit that works for your family such as strawberries, peaches and blueberries.

Here’s my recipe:

1 14oz sweetened condensed milk, chilled

1 cup cold water

2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped

1 0r 2 tins of The Master’s Baker vanilla or choc cake tops cut in cubes

2 tbls raspberry jam

2 cups fresh raspberries, strawberries or any fruit

Decorate with fresh mint, if possible

Beat milk, water and extract.  Add pudding mix, whisk for 2 minutes until soft set.  Fold in whipped cream. Place half of cake cubes in glass dish, top with cream.  Carefully spread with jam, Sprinkle with 1 cup raspberries, Layer again as above.  Garnish with mint.  Serves 14-16
