I love desserts that can be portioned individually and I love them even more when they can be portable, like in this recipe for these delish trifles. They take a little bit of time to make, but they truly aren't too bad. The cake is made from a box mix and is light and fluffy. The pudding is homemade which was a first, if I'm remembering correctly, for me. It was super simple and quick. Then it's just a matter of building your trifles into mason jars and you've got a great dessert for a cookout in the summertime. The fresh fruit was simply perfect in this - absolutely reminiscent of a banana split sundae.

What you need:
For the cake:
  • 1 box vanilla cake mix, cooked in 9x13" pan, cooled, and cubed
For the pudding:
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
For assembly:
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 4 cups fresh pineapple, chopped
  • 4 bananas, sliced [toss with lemon or pineapple juice to prevent browning]
  • 2 to 3 cups whipped topping
  • 8 to 10 maraschino cherries
  1. Prepare cake according to box instructions for 9x13" pan, cool, and cube.
  2. For the pudding: in a large pot, bring milk to a simmer, stirring often, over medium-high heat. Do not scorch.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together sugar, cornstarch, salt, and vanilla.
  4. Once milk is near boiling, reduce heat to medium and whisk in sugar mixture.
  5. Stir constantly until it has thickened. Then stir in butter and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  6. In pint size mason jars, layer ingredients in the following order: cake, bananas, cooled pudding, pineapple, strawberries. Repeat.
  7. Top with whipped cream and cherries and chill until ready to serve.
