Patriotic Berry Trifle is a quick and easy dessert
to celebrate the Red, White and Blueberry!
Trifle is my go-to dessert, I usually make one or two, a couple of couple times a year to send to my hubby’s office for birthdays. It’s an ideal dessert for me to send since it’s make-ahead, easy to assemble, and a crowd-pleaser! Best of all, no baking is required when you pick up a ready-made pound cake or angel food cake in the grocery. You can assemble it as far ahead as the night before it’s being served or just a few hours in advance.
With Memorial Day on the horizon, I used a medley of strawberries in season, blueberries and blackberries.
No recipe is required and it’s easy to customize your trifle with fruit, cake flavor, and vary the layers with your choice of custard, pudding, lemon curd, whipped cream or a combination!
Start with an angel food or pound cake
from your grocery store bakery.
Cut your cake in cubes, layer with berries. . .
I used alternating layers of whipped cream and a mixture of lemon curd and light cream cheese.
For two cups of lemon curd, I mix (2) 8 ounce packages of light cream cheese. Use room temperature cream cheese for easier mixing. Adjust the ratio of cream cheese to lemon curd to your taste, whether you want it more cream-cheesy or more lemony.
