Luscious Lemon Pudding Trifle: A Sprightly Surprise


Hey, home bakers! Fancy a tangy twist to your regular desserts? You've gotta try this—"Luscious Lemon Pudding Trifle." This dessert features the zesty kick of lemons, the sweet cuddle of creamy pudding, and the ever-charmful vanilla wafers. Intrigued? Grab your apron and let’s get started!

Here's What You'll Need:

  • A couple of instant lemon pudding boxes (3.4 oz each)
  • 2 cups of fresh whole milk
  • 1 delightful can (14 oz) of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1½ cups of heavy whipping cream
  • An inviting 1/3rd cup of Imperial Sugar Confectioners Powdered Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of untamed vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces of zesty lemon curd
  • 1 box (11 oz) of crisp vanilla wafers

Now, for the super-fun part—whipping up our decadent trifle. Let's roll!

Let's Get Into the Process:

  1. Start off by taking a sizable mixing bowl. Combine your powdered pudding mix, whole milk, and that sinfully sweet condensed milk. Stir them together until you have a smooth mix. Pause and let your mix contemplate life for about 3 minutes. It needs to thicken a bit.

  2. Now, we’re onto the whipped cream. Combine whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Whip until your cream looks lavish with stiff peaks. Gradually mix this into your pudding, ensuring a creamy and luscious texture.

  3. Time for the real fun—layering. Start layering your pudding in a glamorous trifle bowl or into eight cute mason jars (individual servings anyone?). First goes a layer of vanilla wafers, topped with 1/3 of your tangy lemon curd, spreading for even coverage. This delicious duo is then covered with 1/3 of your smooth pudding mixture. Go with this rhythm until you complete your layers, always enticing the next one! Make sure to hold back a little lemon curd for your showstopper garnish.

  4. Bless your pudding with some alone time. Protect it with a lid and let it chill in the refrigerator for a cool 4 hours before you dive in. Got time? You can prep this dessert up to a day ahead.

There you go, folks! An alluring dessert that will awaken all your senses. Enjoy the layers of decadence and remember, life is too short not to have this zesty 'Luscious Lemon Pudding Trifle'! Cheers, and happy baking!
