What Is A Trifle?

The definition of a trifle is a cold dessert of sponge cake and fruit covered with layers of custard, jelly, and cream.

Ingredients You’ll Need For This Trifle

How To Make Strawberry Trifle

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray two 8-inch cake pans generously with cooking spray.
  2. Wash and dry strawberries, raspberries and blueberries then place into separate bowls. Place whipped cream into a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Place cake mix, eggs, milk, oil, sour cream and vanilla pudding mix into a large mixing bowl. Stir slowly to combine, then vigorously until batter is well combined. Transfer evenly to prepared cake pans and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until baked through. Remove and let cool completely.
  4. Flip cakes over onto parchment paper and cut into 1-1 1/2 inch cubes. Place a layer of cake cubes into a trifle bowl then top with a thick layer of whipped cream. Arrange a layer of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries over cream. Repeat another layer of cake, whipped cream and berries filling to the top of your trifle bowl. Place Trifle into refrigerator to chill until ready to serve.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Remove from oven and let cool. As a time saving tip, bake your cakes up to 2 days in advance. Cover tightly and store in refrigerator until ready to bake.

Always Wash Your Fruit

Make sure your strawberries are washed and dry. Remove stems and slice.

How to Assemble Your Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

Once your cakes are cool, cut into cubes and layer the first layer into the bottom of your trifle bowl.

Layer some berries over your whipped cream then another layer of cake.

Top with more whipped cream and berries for the top layer. Get creative and decorate the berries however you’d like. Such a beautiful dessert!
