"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Personal Notes:
Grandma Carolyn's brother, Delos Ellsworth, brought this recipe to Arizona from his mission in South Africa. It has been a family favorite since the early 1950's!

Marlane likes to make this in a glass trifle bowl and serve a special family dinners. Everyone loves it!
The kids especially love the jello mixed with the cake and pudding. You can get creative with this recipe and add other fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, bananas, etc. One fun variation is a red, white & blue trifle for the 4th of July.
