COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ingredients:

  • 1 whole angel food cake (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 5.1 oz. box of instant vanilla pudding (or banana, if preferred)
  • 2 ½ cups milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 10 oz. can pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 21 oz. can cherry pie filling
  • 1 8 oz. container creamy whipped topping
  • Pecans for garnish, if desired


Chop up the cake into roughly 1-inch cubes.

Prepare pudding according to package directions.

In a trifle dish or large bowl, arrange a layer of cake chunks. Top with pudding, making sure to spread to the edges. Top with pineapple and then cherries, also spreading to the edges. Repeat all layers.
