Easy Trifle

From: swampbear

swampy reports: "I had this at brunch on Sunday. 'Tis tres nummy! I am sharing the recipe exactly as I got it in email. The person I got this from is known far and wide (ok, around church!) for her nummy, nummy cooking."

1 box Devil’s Food Cake Mix
3 boxes Devil’s Food Pudding
2 cans Dark Cherry Pie Filling
3 – 4 oz. Cherry Vodka or Liqueur
1 Container Cool Whip

Make Devil’s Food Cake mix according to directions and a 13” pan. (I add 1 Tbsp. Espresso Powder, 2 tsp. good quality vanilla and a couple dashes of good quality cinnamon powder to mine). Cool, and slice into 1” squares.

Mix the 3 packages of Devil’s Food Pudding with 5 cups of milk.

To assemble:

Put 1/3 cake in bottom of trifle bowl and pour 1/3 liquor (whatever type) over the cake. Put 1/3 pudding on top. Put 1/3 cherries on top of that. Continue layering. Top with Cool Whip.

A Few Substitution Ideas:

Lemon Cake, Lemon Pudding, Blueberries (Limoncello)
Spice Cake, Vanilla Pudding, Apples (Calvados)
Angel Food Cake, Vanilla Pudding, Strawberries and Bananas (Chambord)

You don’t have to add the liquor, but it kicks up the taste a little.
