(Good Things Utah) Moist banana cake, luscious coconut cream, juicy blueberries, and toasted coconut are layered together to make the yummiest trifle. Perfect for spring!


For the Cake

  • 1 yellow box cake mix (plus eggs, oil, and water to make)
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

For the Cream:

  • 1 quart heavy whipping cream
  • 2 boxes (3.4 oz. each) Coconut Cream Jello pudding mix

Remaining Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes


  • Prepare cake according to box directions. Add baking soda and mix. Fold in mashed bananas. Pour into a greased 9×13 greased baking dish and bake as directed. Let cool completely and cut into cubes.
  • To toast coconut, add to a baking sheet, spread evenly, and bake at 325 for 8-10 minutes. Stir halfway through to ensure even toasting. Careful not to burn! Set aside to cool.
  • Using a stand or handheld electric mixer, whip heavy cream with pudding mixes until stiff peaks form. Add more cream or milk if it gets too stiff. Set aside.


  • Place 1/3 of the cake in a glass bowl or trifle dish.
  • Top with 1/3 of the blueberries.
  • Add 1/3 of the cream and spread evenly.
  • Repeat layers two more times ending with cream.
  • Top with toasted coconut.
  • Refrigerate for 3 hours before serving.
