Gluten Free Peach Trifle

Pin It

                                                 Peach Trifle

      Peaches are one of the greatest fruits on this Earth, I absolutely love everything about peaches and if you follow my blog, this isn't the first peach dessert; but I think it might be the BEST, (I could have licked the bowl clean) I've blogged this summer; it took major self control to not make more!!   My bowl is not pretty to hold the trifle, so now I am on a search to find a beautiful, glass trifle bowl, who would have thought anyone would ever need such a bowl(not me!!) but honestly, everything tastes so much better if it in is a GORGEOUS  container!! 
      Presentation, presentation, presentation, that is the name of the game when you are taking Gluten Free food anywhere, it must look equally as appealing as the "regular food" if not better, or no one will even try it.  So, my suggestion for the day is, anywhere you go, yard sales, flea markets, auctions, hand-me-downs, thrift shops, new stores, wherever you go, always look for bowls, platters, plates, cake stands and anything else you can find to display your fantastic food on!  Have fun shopping and Happy Baking!

 Recipe adapted from Shiksa in the Kitchen
-1 box GF yellow cake mix of your choice
-1 (8oz)cream cheese room temp
-1 pint whipping cream (1.6fluid oz.)
-1 (3.9 oz) vanilla pudding (GF)I also use sugar free so I have use 2 small boxes, I don't need anymore sugar!
-2 tsp pure vanilla extract
-1 1/2 cups powdered sugar ( you will use 1/2 cup with the cream cheese and the 1 cup with the whipped cream)
 -5 cups fresh peaches
**Let it chill in the fridge for at least 4 hrs, once assembled.**

To assemble-
-make your cake, let it cool, then cut it into chunks.
*When your cake is cooking and cooling, do the below things*
-In a mixer or with a hand-mixer, mix the cream cheese, vanilla, dash of salt, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar together until it is light and fluffy.
-Mix together your pudding, then set in the fridge
-Whip up your whipping cream, add 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 cup powdered sugar, whip until thick .
- Peal and cut up your peaches

1-First layer cake

3-Cream cheese
5-repeat until you run out of everything  
6-Lastly- add your whipped cream very last on the top, and decorate with a few peaches if you choose. 


This actually made this bowl and a small bowl too, it will make a big trifle bowl and serve a lot of people.  You can make it a day ahead it you like, and just put cool whip on instead of whipping your own cream if your in a hurry. * Make sure and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours once it is assembled, it helps the flavors to melt together!*   Seriously, this is so fantastic, I could have taken a spoon to the bowl and just eaten until it was gone!
