Fuss-free quick & easy Christmas Black Forest Brownie Trifle
Christmas is one of my favourite days of the year, as it means I get to cook a lot of food for my family. We always split up the courses between my aunts, uncles, cousins and this year we’ll be doing the appetisers and one dessert, my favourite courses! I haven’t fully decided on what dessert I’ll be making yet, but last year I made an amazing Black Forest Trifle – my first trifle ever, which I made completely gluten-free as well. It’s such an easy recipe to make, as you can have it ready in less than 30 minutes and everybody – both young and old – will simply love it!
I didn’t make it in the traditional Black Forest Gateau style, but made it into my own version, starting with a layer of homemade brownies at the bottom, then a layer of chocolate pudding, fresh red fruit (cherries, cranberries, raspberries, strawberries are all great options), finished with a thick layer of whipped cream. To make things easier on myself (considering how many people I had to make it for), I used store-bought chocolate pudding and Avonmore caramel whipped cream, so I only had to make the brownies myself.
