Banana Macaroon Trifle Recipe

Banana Macaroon Trifle Recipe

A chewy homemade macaroon mixture takes the place traditionally held by cake in this trifle from Barbara Keith. "sometimes I serve the sweet treat in individual cups," shares the Faucett, Missouri reader. No time to bake? Use store-bought macaroons instead.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 3 to 4 small firm bananas, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon DOLE® Canned 100% Pineapple Juice
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, oats and baking powder; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition (mixture will appear curdled). Stir in coconut.
  • 2. Spread in a well-greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 325° for 25-30 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely; crumble. Set aside 1/4 cup for topping.
  • 3. Just before serving, toss bananas with pineapple juice. In a 2-1/2-qt. serving bowl, layer a third of the macaroon crumbs, whipped topping and bananas. Repeat layers twice. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"This was a good recipe but I modified it slightly. I made a package of banana pudding and added it to the layers. I think next time I will use two packages. Was very good, it tasted like a mixture of a banana and coconut cream pie."

"I have made this recipe over and over - in fact, I often "get in trouble" if I don't bring it to family dinners! It is easy and delicious and I very seldom have leftovers. However, I don't recommend using store bought macaroons. This homemade mix is great!"
