How to Make It
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

3 In a blender, add the water and raisins and blend until smooth.
4 Pour the raisin-water mix into a separate bowl and combine with the vinegar, vanilla, and applesauce.
5 Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and stir with a whisk until well mixed.
6 Pour into a round baking dish lined with parchment paper.
7 Bake for 30 minutes.

9 To assemble the trifle, begin by spreading a layer of chocolate mousse in the bottom of a trifle cake bowl, round bowl or personal size parfait cup.
10 Top the mousse with a layer of strawberries.
11 Next add a layer of cake. If using a personal parfait cup, you can use a round cookie cutter to cut the cake.
12 Repeat steps 9-11 until you fill the bowl or cup.
13 The last layer should be chocolate mousse and strawberries.
