I usually make this recipe in the summer time, but the food theme for last nights book club was-English Foods. It is really simple and is great to make for a crowd.
- 1/4 cup rum
- 1 cup sliced almonds
- 2 angel food loaves or round cakes; cubed
- 3 small boxes of instant French Vanilla pudding mix
- 6 cups half & half
- Whatever kind of fruit you want to use
- 1 small container of Cool Whip
Combine rum and almonds. Pour almond mixture over angel food cake cubes and marinate while slicing fruit and preparing pudding. Slice fruit if needed. Prepare pudding as directed on package using half and half instead of milk. Layer in trifle or punch bowl in a couple of layers..I usually do 2. Marinated cake, fruit mixture, pudding. Top the last layer with cool whip. Sprinkle with extra almonds and fruit if desired.
