Scrumptious Trifle Loaf

Well, incase you haven't noticed, I've not been making many many bentos lately. None pretty much. I've just been so busy. There's something about having a one year old toddling about on newly walking feet that doesn't allow you much time! That, and I've been busy with other activities whenever there is any time. I do plan on getting back on the ball soon though! I just can't bare all the plain sandwiches! No, just kiddin'.

Here's a recipe for a dessert I 'threw' together recently that went over really well with the family so I wanted to share it here with you guys! Please excuse the poor quality of pics though - the lighting wasn't so great.

It's real simple. 

Buy or make a pound cake and slice into 1-inch thick slices (you only need about 6 slices in total so the pound cake doesn't have to be real big and you'll probably have some leftover)
Whip up some pudding (I loooove white choc flavor with this) with some heavy whipping cream until soft peaks.
Mix sliced fresh strawberries with fresh raspberries (or blueberries etc) and mix with some raspberry sauce. Make your own or do like me and buy a can of the pie filling.

Now to assemble.

Lay three slices of the pound cake on the bottom of a glass loaf dish and spread with half the fruit mixture.
Spoon over half of the pudding mixture.
Again layer three slices of pound cake plus fruit mixture. 
Then add 1/2-1 cup of cool whip to the remaining pudding mixture and spread on top.

To make it pretty you could pipe something with chocolate on top or decorate with some fruit.

It is so absolutely delicious. I have never seen a dessert disappear so fast.
