Easy Banana Trifle

I didn't take a picture of this trifle because it was so easy, it felt like I was cheating - but I'm sharing the recipe because it was so easy!

Easy Trifle
1 box devil's food cake mix (plus water, oil and eggs to make the cake)
1 box instant vanilla pudding mix (plus milk to make the pudding)
5 bananas
1 tub frozen whipped topping, thawed

1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions and bake in a 13x9 inch pan until done. Cool completely and cut into 1-inch thick slices.

2. Prepare the pudding according to package directions and chill until the cake is ready.

3. Cut the bananas length-wise into 1/4-inch slices.

4. Assemble the trifle layers in a clear bowl or tupperware for maximum effect in the following order: cake, pudding, banana, whipped topping. Repeat layers until you have 3 layers, ending with the whipped topping. To garnish, you can top with some fresh berries, chocolate shavings, or cocoa powder.

Note: I'm sure this would work with other flavor combinations, like pound cake, chocolate pudding and strawberries. Use whatever's at hand - this is a great emergency dessert!
