Who can resist fresh strawberries? Especially at this time of the year, when they’re in season and bursting with that unique flavor that only fresh strawberries have! Soooo delicious! Heavenly Fresh Strawberry Trifle satisfies your craving not one but two ways! Layered with fresh strawberries and a delicious from scratch strawberry sauce! Drizzled between layers of light, spongy Angel Food cake and whipped cream cheese, who can resist? Can you say YUM????
Heavenly Fresh Strawberry Trifle starts with two pints of yummy, flavorful strawberries. One pint is sliced and layered with the other ingredients and the other is used for the deliciously fresh and sweet strawberry sauce.
When the first pint is sliced, set it aside. When the second pint is sliced, place the sliced strawberries in a medium sauce pan along with granulated sugar and lemon juice.
In a pinch, you can use frozen strawberries for the sauce. Just make sure that the strawberries are unsweetened. Once the sauce has cooked down and thickened, set it aside to cool. You may even want to transfer it to a heat resistance bowl and refrigerate the sauce for a little while. It needs to be cool when you layer it with the other yummy ingredients for Heavenly Fresh Strawberry Trifle.
In a medium to large mixing bowl, whip the softened cream cheese with a hand mixer until light and fluffy (about two to three minutes).
Next, add the powdered sugar and mix until well incorporated. Then add the whipped topping, the vanilla and mix well; set aside.
Cube the Angel Food cake into approximately 1″ squares.
Then begin to layer the ingredients for Heavenly Fresh Strawberry Trifle…
If you want to make a pretty and distinctive layer for the strawberries, you can add them with the sliced side up against the side of the bowl in a pattern. Or just let them go where they may, as shown below.
