Breakfast for...Dessert?!

Well, now this was unexpected. How could we not try it? A breakfast themed dessert! It had to be done!

We had tried another breakfast-themed trifle years ago, but hadn't liked it quite as much as this one. However, if you would like to try that one out, it is Betty Crocker's recipe for Strawberry Cream Cheese Trifle, and you can find it here. That trifle was made with pancakes. It was good, but I would suggest making your favorite "from scratch" pancake recipe rather than making Bisquick pancakes, and I would have cut the pancakes into smaller pieces for the trifle (though this wouldn't have looked as pretty, it would have tasted better, made it easier to eat, and melded the flavors better).

Donut Trifle


2 pkg. (3.4 oz each) Jell-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
3 cups cold milk
1 cup sour cream
8 glazed donuts with sprinkles, each cut into 8 pieces (see notes)
1 tub (8 oz) Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed
1 tablespoon multi-colored sprinkles


Beat pudding mixes and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 minutes. Stir in sour cream.

Layer half of the donut pieces followed by half of the pudding and then half of the Cool Whip in a large bowl; repeat layers.

Top with sprinkles.

Notes: I have no idea what store Kraft goes shopping at, but I have never seen glazed donuts with sprinkles on least, not regularly. I have seen cake donuts with frosting and sprinkles on top. So, here's my suggestion: if you want it a little lighter, get simple glazed donuts (no sprinkles necessary), or if you want it richer, get cake donuts with or without frosting and sprinkles. My mom got an assortment of cake donuts (different flavored cake donuts...blueberry, strawberry, regular, etc.) with frosting and sprinkles. It was good, but heads up, it was also super sweet and rich.
