Strawberry Shortcake Trifles

Chocolate is heavenly, strawberry shortcake – angelic. Light, fluffy, and moist – angel food cake is just guilt-free enough to eat two servings for dessert :)

Light, fast, and cheap – strawberry shortcake is one of the easiest desserts to whip up in the world.

Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Nothing beats a trifle of fresh strawberries layered with angel food cake and whipped cream.


  • 1 angel food cake
  • 1 pound strawberries, washed, hulled and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • Heavy cream


  1. Add sugar to the strawberries, toss, and set aside for 15-20 minutes (longer if you can).
  2. Whip the cold cream until soft peaks form, set aside. Run half of the strawberries through the food processor until smooth and mix with the remaining chopped berries.
  3. Tear cake into 2 inch pieces and layer in a red wine glass (or mini trifle bowls). Spoon strawberry sauce over cake and top with whipped cream. Repeat twice more to build the trifle. Yields 2 trifles.


Yields: ~12-16 servings

Following the title of your previous post, you need to take your own advice: put a label on these things :D

Georgeous pic! Delicious dessert! After my rice pudding and strawberry sauce last week, I don’t know how I am going to handle this…

I will gladly take one of those off your hands. I can not wait to bit into some strawberry shortcake this year.
