Carrot cake trifle


Carrot cake: see our easy carrot cake recipe or follow their instructions in the video. Allow it to cool completely. Cutting it into cubes looks fantastic but takes longer.

Pineapple layer: 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, undrained + 1/4 c brown sugar + 2 Tbsp corn starch heated in saucepan and cooled.

Whipped cream layer: combine 8 oz pkg cream cheese, 1 c sugar, 1/8 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla. Fold into 1 1/2 c whipping cream, whipped – or cool whip to make it easier.

Garnish: crushed vanilla cookies and/or walnut pieces, caramel sauce or Dulce de Leche sweetened condensed milk.


Put layer of cake cubes on bottom of trifle bowl. Spoon 1/2 of the pineapple mixture on top. Cover with 1/3 of the whip cream/cream cheese mixture.

Put another layer of each and end with the remaining 1/3 of whipped cream on the top. (Don’t worry if there’s enough to cover all of the top – it looks better mounded in the center with the pineapple underneath showing.)

Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Just before serving, sprinkle with crushed cookies and/or walnut pieces, and drizzle with caramel sauce or Dulce de Leche sweetened condensed milk.
