We call it a trifle because it's in a trifle dish, but it doesn't have rum in it, so I am not sure this is the true name. Nevertheless, it is wonderful and we'll probably make one this Thankgiving.
Here are 2 recipes:
Black Forest Trifle
1 package gluten free devil’s food cake mix, prepared as per package directions.
1 package Philadelphia Cream Cheese, ready made cheesecake filling.
1 can cherry pie filling.
Layer the prepared cake, the cheesecake filling and the cherries in a pretty bowl. This will make you popular at pot lucks even among the people who can eat gluten some of whom have actually thanked me for bringing this dessert.
Strawberry Shortcake Trifle
1 package Pamela's vanilla cake, baked as per package directions and cooled.
1 package whipped cream
1 pint strawberries.
Just layer them up, Easy Peasy.
