Hawaiian Dream Trifle
By Susan Bickta souxie
I love the combined flavors of pineapple, toasted coconut and macadamia nuts. I combined these flavors with angel food cake and coconut cream pudding for a light "tropical" dessert.
WOW, what a fabulously different and easy dessert! We were in a pinch and needed to use cook & serve pudding in place of instant, but it still worked like a dream! Just be sure to chill the pudding before incorporating it into the recipe.

If you don't like angel food cake, can you use yellow cake? Everything else sounds wonderful

Hi Kathy!! I think if you use a pound cake it would turn out fine. Not sure about a regular yellow cake....might not hold up as well as a pound cake or angel food cake......these cakes have a texture that would hold up better and not break down......let me know if you try it. I know traditional trifles are usually made with a dense cake, like a pound cake....hope it works out!!! The flavor combinations are awesome!
