Why I Love This Recipe

This trifle is a showstopper, it looks so good and the taste is wonderful. I love the combination of strawberries and rhubarb, it just screams summer.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 cups milk
5 egg yolks, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


4 cups fresh or frozen rhubarb, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 prepared angel food cake (8 inches), cubed
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries


In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Gently stir in vanilla. Transfer to a large bowl. Cool to room temperature without stirring.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring the rhubarb, sugar and water to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir 5-8 minutes or until rhubarb is tender and mixture is thickened. Cool completely. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold a fourth of the whipped cream into the custard. Fold in remaining whipped cream.

Place half of the cake cubes in a 2-1/2 quart trifle bowl. Spread with half of the rhubarb mixture; top with 1 cup of strawberries and half of the custard. Repeat layers. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour before serving. Yield: 12-14 servings.
