Yesterday began my month of Christmas baking and cooking! This is the most wonderful time of the year 🙂 We are all so busy, sometimes it feels good to just stay home and have a day of fun. And fun for me is spending time in my kitchen.
These little trifles are adorable and portable! Usually a trifle is in a big glass bowl, a formidable and elegant offering. These individual trifles are perfect for giving or for a party.
I will give you the recipe that I used for my chocolate cake. It’s easy, it’s moist…but if you wanna, you can certainly use a devil’s food cake mix. Entirely your preference!
Here’s the recipe I used: One Bowl Chocolate Cake Mix. It’s very moist and tastes good with nearly any frosting you want to top it with 🙂
One-Bowl Chocolate Cake
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup baking cocoa
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
- 1 cup canola oil
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup hot water
- Frosting of your choice
- Colored sprinkles, optional
- Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 13×9-in. baking pan. In a large bowl, whisk the first 6 ingredients. Stir in eggs, oil and buttermilk. Add water; stir until combined.
- Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Frost cake. If desired, decorate with sprinkles.
For the trifle itself, I used the recipe I found at Blooming Homestead: Chocolate Trifle
