Your photos are amazing Jeanine..what kind of a camera do you have? I am not the greatest fan of chocolate but you present it so well that I think I would love a dish of that trifle!! And no problems around here..lots of chocolate lovers in my family!

It was VERY delicious. 🙂
Katy, you don't want to be making this every weekend. But, it is great to serve a crowd!
Betty, thank you so much for the compliments. 🙂 I actually use a simple point & shoot, a Canon PowerShot A560 (few years old already). I've been playing around with my manual settings & light boxes lately, seems to make a difference (always use your Macro setting, it works great!).

Yes I always use my Macro setting and I know lighting is very important..I have a Samsung NV10 and it has 10.1 pixels.

I'm going to completely cheat on this one, I think … use Pamela's Chocolate Cake Mix, Instant Pudding & Cool Whip 🙂
I like taking the easy way out sometimes!

Divine! Yes, I wouldn't guess it was gluten free, I'm loving the texture of that chocolatey cake!

Betty, lighting seems to be the key thing too. PLus, I set my camera to take a number of pics when I push the button, so I'm sure to get something nice & clear. Oh, and no zooming either, just get in real close!
Karen, those sound like WONDERFUL shortcuts! 🙂
Sophie, I was hoping you would be able to see the texture of that cake. It was FANTASTIC! 🙂 Moist, not crumbly, and beautifully chocolaty. 🙂

It's always wonderful to find a GF chocolate cake recipe. Another one to put in my recipe box. 🙂 Maybe birthday cake. Hmmmm…..

You can never go wrong with chocolate + more chocolate! I miss eating a triffle!

Jen, this cake is so easy to do, it's WAY better than any box mix you can buy. And PERFECT for a birthday cake! 🙂
Trifle is GOOD! I agree. 🙂

This looks so delicious. If I opt to leave out the coffee, do I need to sub any extra liquid?
Also, would it change the consistency of the pudding drastically if I used 1 or 2% milk rather than skim, do you think?

It IS delicious! :)If you omit the coffee, I'd replace it with either more buttermilk or water. The coffee just adds a little flavour. And in place of the skim milk, any other milk would work great. I always use 1%, because that's what we have in the house. Let me know how it turns out!

Great! Thanks, Jeanine. I'm excited to try it in the next couple days. I'll let ya know how it goes.

Cake=wonderful and came out perfectly (though I ended up having a lot leftover, but hey-extra cake! yum!)Whipped cream=wonderful (hard to screw that up and it's strangely therapeutic to make at home rather than buy in a can haha)Pudding=delicious (though it got a skin on it which is most likely from me failing at following directions.)
I haven't tried the finished product yet as I just made up 6 little 8oz glasses of the stuff and put it in the fridge (easier to not be tempted to eat the whole bowl…and we didn't have a bowl that wasn't already in use-that's college for you) but I gotta imagine with all the delicious factors it can't be bad!
Thanks for posting the recipe!

Sarar, you won't be disappointed! If all the separate components are good, the combination will be GREAT!! 🙂
