{RECIPE} Banana Butterscotch Trifle

Ooh my, this trifle was absolutely delicious.  It was hard to get a good photograph, because when served and spooned into a bowl it’s just a big blog, but wow blob or not the custard, butterscotch and cream all mixed together with the banana and cake tastes so good. My brother popped around when I made this and he was disappointed he wasn’t invited for dinner.  LOL, mean sister, no I didn’t ask him to stay.  This will absolutely be a dessert I will make over and over again.
