  • 1 pre-made butter pound cake or angel food cake
  • 2 packages vanilla pudding mix, prepared for custard filling
  • 6 Tablespoons light rum
Chocolate Ganache
  • 9 ounces premium quality dark chocolate (at least 65% cocoa)
  • 1 Cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon dark rum
  1. Prepare the custard and allow to cool.
  2. In individual goblets or wide-mouth glasses, evenly portion chunks of cake, alternating them with scoops of custard.
  3. Spoon in 2 to 3 teaspoons of rum per trifle
  4. Top with ganache.
Chocolate Ganache
  1. Place the chocolate into a medium bowl. Heat the cream in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil, watching very carefully because if it boils for a few seconds, it will boil out of the pot. When the cream has just come to a boil, pour over the chopped chocolate, and whisk until smooth. Stir in the rum if desired.
  2. Allow the ganache to cool slightly before pouring over the trifles.
