How to make Pineapple Upside Down Cake Trifle
- For this recipe, you will need a yellow cake mix, a 3.5 oz. box of pudding mix, a pint of heavy whipping cream, a can of pineapple chunks, and some maraschino cherries. Of course you can use your favorite homemade cake recipe too.
Pineapple Upside-Down Trifle (Pineapple Cream Trifle)
- 4 cups of vanilla pudding (instant is fine)
- 1 can of pineapple in juice
- 2-3 cups of cake cubes (a 9x13 yellow cake is best, any recipe.)
- 3-4 cups of whipped cream (fresh is best)
- About 2 cups of sugar
- Maraschino cherries
- Drain the juice from the can of pineapple into a cup. Cut your cake into cubes, whip your cream, and make your pudding. Add about 3 tbsp. of pineapple juice from the can to the pudding for added flavor. Then start layering in a medium size bowl or trifle dish. Or you can layer individually into mason jars. Continue layering until all the ingredients are gone, finishing with whip cream on top. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Enjoy!
