Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3 cups milk
  • 5 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • FILLING:
  • 4 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 prepared angel food cake (8 inches), cubed
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

Directions

In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Gently stir in vanilla. Transfer to a large bowl. Cool to room temperature without stirring.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring the rhubarb, sugar and water to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 5-8 minutes or until rhubarb is tender and mixture is thickened. Cool completely. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold a fourth of the whipped cream into the custard. Fold in remaining whipped cream.
Place half of the cake cubes in a 2-1/2-qt. trifle bowl. Spread with half of the rhubarb mixture; top with 1 cup of strawberries and half of the custard. Repeat layers. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour before serving. Yield: 12-14 servings.

"Took to a Canada Day picnic and this was loved by all. The rhubarb flavour was quite subtle. I think that I might use 6 cups of rhubarb, adding extra sugar accordingly next time I make this. I also had extra whipping cream so whipped it up and put it on the top to use it up. Delicious recipe. A must try to all who see this recipe here."
