What’s not to love about this quick and easy dessert—chocolate, pudding, cake and whipped cream. Doesn’t that cover all the dessert food groups?!
Home cook Colleen Gilbert turned a regular tiramisu into something delectable with her Tiramisu Trifle. If you have an issue finding ladyfingers, Gilbert suggests substituting angel food or pound cake. I think either would be delish!
