I've got a couple of recipes to share with you today.
Two weeks ago I made a Strawberry Angel Food Trifle with a recipe I found on Facebook. It was also on Pinterest so I knew it must be delicious. I was so busy during our family gathering I forgot to take a picture. So, here's the picture from the original source.
Strawberry Angel Food Trifle
(1) store-bought angel food cake (used 1 1/2 cakes)
24 oz. container frozen strawberries, sliced with sugar added, thawed
24 oz. or 3 cups vanilla pudding (I used 3 individual store bought cups.)
16 oz. container of whipped cream
Fresh strawberries for garnish
Tear angel food cake into medium pieces.
Begin layering cake, strawberries, pudding and whip cream in a large clear glass bowl.
Continue irregular layers, filling the bowl.
Top entire dessert with a solid layer of whip cream.
Slice a few fresh strawberries for garnish.
Refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours before serving.
(I think mine was refrigerated for only about an hour.)
It was a delicious hit. I'm adding it to my list of easy dessert recipes.
Yesterday, I baked Banana Blueberry Bread with another Facebook recipe.
Blueberry Banana Bread
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup fresh blueberries
(I also added 1/4 cup flaux & 1/4 cup oatmeal.)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2 medium size loaf pans.
Mix together flour, baking soda and salt.
In mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add 1 egg in at a time, then add vanilla.
Add in bananas and then flour mixture until thoroughly combined.
Carefully fold blueberries into batter, pour into loaf pans.
Bake in preheated oven 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in comes out clean.
Cool pans on wire rack for 10 minutes, then take bread out of pans, cool thoroughly on wire racks.
Moist & delicious!
I wonder how long this will last!
This is another recipe I will make again when I have over ripe bananas.
