Fruit Compote

  1. Add all ingredients, except for cornstarch slurry, and bring up to a simmer.
  2. Once at a simmer, add in the slurry, stir, and let thicken. Cool before assembling trifle.

Pound Cake

  1. Cream together cream cheese and butter until combined and light. Add in sugar and cream until fluffy.
  2. Add in the egg and mix to combine. Add in flour and vanilla powder and mix for about 2 minutes. Make sure to scrape down the sides often.
  3. Bake in a prepared 9x13 pan in a 325F oven for about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Let cool and cut into cubes.

Whipped Cream

  1. Whip cream, sugar, and vanilla together until stiff peaks.

Custard Sauce

  1. Heat instant milk powder, water, and cream together until it just comes to a simmer.
  2. Mix scrambled egg mix, water, sugar, vanilla and salt together.
  3. Temper the egg mixture by adding the hot cream slowly, while whisking constantly.
  4. Once the eggs and cream are combined, place back on stove, heat on low heat and stir constantly.
  5. The sauce should heat up and thicken. Be cautious not to over cook or to heat too quickly (you may risk scrambling the eggs).
  6. Strain sauce through a fine strainer quickly after custard starts to thicken.
  7. Cool sauce in refrigerator or ice bath.
  8. Sauce should thicken more when cooled and have a smooth consistency.

Simple Syrup

  1. Heat all ingredients together and simmer for 1 minute. Remove, strain, and cool.
  2. Break up cake into pieces and coat with the orange flavored simple syrup.


  1. Layer half the fruit, half the cake, half the custard, and then half of the cream. Repeat. Garnish with some toasted coconut and THRIVE strawberry powder.
