A recipe for a strawberry and blueberry pudding trifle with pound cake. Strawberry and blueberry pudding trifle with pound cake recipe. A strawberry and blueberry pudding trifle with pound cake. Luna Lovegood is by far my favorite Harry Potter character. Those weird glasses she wears that lets her see things, her cravings for pudding, just her all around weirdness I enjoy. She is by far the best Harry Potter character. I don’t care what you say. Also, yes, I watch Harry Potter. No, I’m not ashamed. They are good movies, reeeeaaaaally good movies.

Its a bit of a love affair situation I have going on. I got hooked on these movies and watch them over and over. I think its because they are so visually intense and inspiring. Each time I watch them I find something new, something I didn’t see before that sparks excitement and a creative mojo that can only be described as epic. Sometimes its color combinations, sometimes its compositions. It doesn’t matter really, what matters is that I (and probably many others) are creatively inspired.

Ok, maybe the story line in the movies isn’t the most amazing, and there are other things I could point out as well. But all that doesn’t matter to me. Its the costumes, the fracking ah-mazing set design, the hair and make up, that is what I love, that is why I keep coming back for more. ANYWAY. Luna loves pudding and so do I. So here is a Luna Lovegood inspired recipe for you.

Luna Lovegood’s Pudding
Makes 1  8inch trifle

Ingredients:
pudding base:
10 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons cornstarch
½ teaspoon salt
5 cups low fat milk
4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons butter
1 ½ tablespoons vanilla extract
whipped cream:
1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
¼ cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups strawberries, diced
2 cups blueberries, diced
1 store bought pound cake, cubed into ½ inch pieces
professional grade pink food coloring
optional:
edible glitter

Directions:
1. Place sugar, cornstarch, salt and milk into a small saucepan, whisk and bring to a simmer.
2. Stir until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
3. Whisk a small amount of the milk mixture into the beaten yolks and whisk the mixture back into the hot milk mixture.
4. Whisk until the pudding is just thick enough to sit onto top of itself.
5. Stir in the butter and vanilla until fully combined.
6. Push the pudding through a fine sieve strainer and set aside to cool.
7. While the pudding cools, place the heavy cream, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.
8. Pour the pudding into a bowl and stir the strawberries and a few drops of pink food coloring.
9. Stir together until fully combined.
10. Pour the strawberry pudding mixture into the bottom of the trifle dish and level off until smooth.
11. Next, layer ½ the cubed pound cake over the pudding and top with ½ of whipped cream.
12. Pour more of the pudding over the whipped cream and top with remaining pound cake and whipped cream.
13. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
14. Finish with edible glitter, if desired and serve.

    I love this! I love HP…and I love Luna too! Her earrings and accessories are always the best.

    The glitter is just the perfect, magical touch.

    The first time I saw Harry Potter, years ago, I was just mesmerized and have been smitten since.

    I totally get the love, and I am so not ashamed!

    This looks amazing!! My favorite character is Neville and my boyfriend’s is Luna so we plan on dressing up for a halloween party as each other’s favorite characters! They are the best part of the movies and this dessert is perfect for Luna!

    Luna is ridiculously awesome! & I love your pudding. It looks amazing. The star sprinkles definitely make it pure Luna!

  5. Lauren Estep Not Specified Not Specified

    Luna Lovegood is MY favorite Harry Potter character too! In fact I named my cat “Luna” because she too is a bit spacey but equally adorable :)

  6. Megan Not Specified Not Specified

    So cute! I love this whole idea. Luna Lovegood really is the best character! I love how she got all stern with Harry in the last movie.

    You’re so weird. Despite this Harry Potter reference going completely over my head, it looks delicious. And pretty. And delicious. Who doesn’t want to eat gold stars?! No one, that’s who.

    That’s a dollop of whipped cream that even magic couldn’t make look so good.

    I just found my way over here; this blog is so beautiful! It takes a lot for me to be inspired to cook, but all of these gorgeous pictures just might do the trick! I LOVE HP and Luna, and this is too pretty to not try!

  10. Bonnie Not Specified Not Specified

    Luna is most definitely the best HP character, books = just as good as the movies!

  11. Miss Quick Not Specified Not Specified

    I have to admit that I first thought this pudding looked like a big bowl of Campbell’s Tomato Soup…but after reading the ingredients it sounds delicious!! I’m also not afraid to admit I love all things Harry Potter! Thanks for the unique post!

    I love trifles and I can’t wait to make this! It also gives me an excuse to buy some edible gold stars.

    This look DELICIOUS! I love Luna. I’m seriously considering naming a child after her. My boyfriend’s oddly on board with the idea! ;)

    Your blog is adorable, we’re now happily following! :)

    This looks magical! and so pretty. and so delicious! I think I missed the part where you add the blueberries though…?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Jordan! No, you didn’t. I forgot to put it in the directions! Good eye! I actually didn’t use blueberries for the photo above, but I did when testing and it really added great flavor to the pudding. When I made this I mad it with two layers of fresh blueberries between the layers of pudding and pound cake (1 cup per layer). Enjoy!

    Oh. my. goodness – just discovered your blog via Oh Joy! and I am in love. Even more in love that you create Harry Potter-inspired desserts.

  20. Beasel Not Specified Not Specified

    That does look fabulous, and I had no idea edible glitter even exists!
    In British English ‘pudding’ actually means a heavy (usually steamed) cake, like Christmas pudding or treacle pudding; very gooey sticky things. – Or it can also just be the (slightly posh) word for ‘dessert’, or any dish that comes after the main meals.

  21. Miki Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh, my! This looks magically delicious! I’ll have to save this recipe. And I think I’ll totally start following this adorable blog! ;D

    Have a colorful weekend!

    Have you read the books? Because Luna’s pudding obsession is actually kind of demeaning in the films — it’s meant to make her quirkiness more quirky and less a result of childhood PTSD, which it is in the books — and also, the storyline in the movies sucks because it leaves out literally 3/4 of the Harry Potter story. The costumes are okay. The sets are great. This particular pudding is adorable.

  23. athena Not Specified Not Specified

    you had me at luna lovegood and pudding….

  24. Sumaiyyah Not Specified Not Specified

    If you were to really make this for Luna or Evanna Lynch, I think you’d be her/their best friend for life :)

    Your photos are awesome!

  25. DuctTapeSpaz Not Specified Not Specified

    This looks… magical! I think I’ll have to try the recipe! I am super happy for you that you enjoy the movies so much. I enjoy them too. I really encourage you to read the Harry Potter books as well. There is so much more depth to the characters, places, and history in the books. Luna and Neville have always been my favorite characters… even before I saw any of the movies. You will fall in love with the both of them over again if you read the books. And then watch the movies again, and be amazed at how much more you notice, and how much more you understand. :) It gets even more magical. :)

    I LOVE this! The Harry Potter series is one of my favorites, and this definitely seems quirky enough for someone like Luna! I’m especially digging how colorful it is.

    You should give the books a chance, they are brilliantly plotted and a lot of their depth and nuance is utterly lost in the movies!
    The pudding looks really delicious! Love the colour.
