Chocolate Strawberry Trifle | Leftover recipes

There are days at home when the cake that I bake becomes an overdose and it is left on its own to go stale. On those days I have to resort to other ways to feed the family that final piece and nothing can jazz up a humble piece of cake like a good trifle. I love a good trifle and I love surprising my huss with a good one too. That awed look he gives when he digs into the dessert exploring each layer as he goes deep into the trifle is precious to me. The huss loved the look of it and grabbed his share before I could take decent photographs and the one you see is my share standing alone with no company. :(

I generally make him some yogurt parfaits with granola for snack and add in chopped fruit to make it healthy. But at times I like giving him a treat too and that is when I make some easy leftover desserts like this. I had some frozen strawberries and it was time to take them out to give the dessert a tang. Strawberries add color and the needed tanginess to cut off the sweetness from the chocolate cake and pudding. The below mentioned quantity serves just two but it can be easily doubled or tripled for a larger quantity.

~*What U Need*~
Chocolate cake crumbs - 1 cup

Strawberries - 1 cup
Sugar - 2-3 tbsp
Water - 2 tbsp

Milk - 1 cup
Cocoa powder - 1 tbsp
Egg yolk - 1
Sugar - 3 tbsp
Vanilla extract - 1/4 tsp

How I Made it:
Wash and hull the strawberries. Chop them up and take them in a pan. Add sugar and water and boil them till you get a chunky sauce of chutney consistency. Set this aside. Heat milk in a pan, add the sugar and whisk till hot and combined well.

Pour this slowly into the egg yolk and whisk well tempering the egg. Return this to the pan and heat till thick and coating a spatula, whisking the whole time. Cool completely.

Layer your serving bowl with cake crumbs, then the strawberry sauce and finally the chocolate pudding. Repeat till the dish is full ending with the pudding.

Serve chilled with a dollop of whipped cream!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
