Re: Fruit Salad/Tofu Cake/"Trifle"

Hi Mike,

In your post about fruit salad you mentioned a "tofu cake":

>Fruit compote
>is very tasty when served over a cake made with whole wheat
>flour, tofu and applesauce. Make this cake intentionally
>rather dry (although tofu always makes cakes moist). The
>sauce will soak into the cake. 

I recently made a low fat "trifle" with a store bought fat free angel food
cake thickly sliced and lined in a large glass bowl.  Topped this with
several cups of berries (I used thawed sliced frozen strawberries and
raspberries without sugar -- after thawing they created a nice syrup that
soaked into the cake), added a little sherry (or try suitable flavored
liqueur) and then topped this with vanilla pudding made from a small package
and skim milk (or try soy milk).

I placed small dollops of a mixture of blackberry and strawberry jam on top
and swirled it through the pudding for a nice design. Refrigerated for
several hours. 

Would love to try your tofu cake recipe as the base for my trifle.  Could
you share it with us?

We love fruit salad/compote and one of our favorite combinations is fresh
bananas and fresh mangoes. A variety of melons balls mixed together is also

I freeze grapes as a warm weather snack -- don't thaw -- just pop the frozen
grapes in your mouth.  Teething babies and kids love these.

Any one have any cold fruit soup recipes?

Here's to summer!
