Every other dessert recipe on earth has vanilla in it, one way or another. So I used sugar-free banana pudding (not the "instant" variety), and dumped some rum onto the sponge cake. Not too bad at all.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the pound cake in half lengthwise, and then crosswise into 12 pieces, resulting in 24 chunks of pound cake.
  2. Heat the jam in the microwave until runny.
  3. This is best done by first putting in into a microwave-safe bowl, if you heat in in the jar you are REALLY asking for trouble.
  4. Whip the cream together with the pudding mix.
  5. Grate the chocolate coarsely, either by hand or in the food processor using the steel knife.
  6. Put the trifle together in a large clear bowl in the follwing order--------.

  10. Sprinkle half the chocolate on top of the cream.
  11. Repeat.
  12. Chill for about two hours before serving.
  13. Prepare yourself for ooohs and aaaahs and a few dumb jokes about it being a"trifle" much or a"trifle" sweet.
