For The Love of Blueberry Cheesecake Trifle
I just can't help myself, if a dessert can be transformed into a trifle, I'm going to make it happen. The very first trifle I ever enjoyed was a traditional English trifle made with sponge cake layered with vanilla custard and fresh fruit. Needless to say, I was hooked from my very first bite. As soon as I was able to navigate the kitchen myself, trifles became a part of my baking reality and I must say, they're here to stay. Some of my most popular trifles you can find here in the MSSK Recipe Index begins with my Outrageous Lemon Lovers Trifle, Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle and Boston Cream Doughnut Trifle just to name a few. They make such an attractive addition to the dessert table and are perfectly suited to be the star ending to any meal. Trifles can hold their own.
Tips for Making Blueberry Cheesecake Trifle
- When making this or any trifle, keep in mind each recipe varies in amount and size. My rule of thumb when choosing a trifle bowl, is to go big. There's nothing worse than having more ingredients than you can fit into the bowl. So, start with a 4 quart bowl or larger, to be safe.
- For a timesaver, a bakery angel food cake works perfectly in this recipe if, you don't want to make your own.
- Use a premium fruit filled pie filling for the best end result.
- Assemble the trifle in advance then cover and chill without finishing the top. Decorate the top just before serving so it looks the very best when you present it.
- The flavor of pie filling in this particular trifle can easily be changed without any further adaptations.
- Be creative and have fun. No two trifles look alike so, make your masterpiece the way you like.
