Lemon Berry Trifle Recipe

Today I wanted to share this super easy to make and delicious berry trifle that I’ve made several times and everyone loves it, plus it’s pretty and who doesn’t love a pretty dessert? It’s also light but still flavorful with the lemon in the berries it makes them taste so much fresher and adds another flavor element to the dish.  The best thing about this dessert is you can make it ahead of time so it’s ready to go when you need it. 

Lemon Berry Trifle Recipe

What you need:

1 angel food cake
2 lbs of strawberries
11 oz of blueberries
1 Lemon
1/2 a cup of sugar
2 containers of whipped cream

Lemon Berry Trifle Recipe

The first thing you’ll want to do is wash and hull the strawberries and cut into fourths, and put in a container . Then wash the blueberries and put with the strawberries. Put the sugar, zest the lemon and all of the juice in the berries too. then mix and let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours (or overnight like I did).  

Cut the angel food cake into thirds.

To assemble the trifle put a layer of the cake in the bottom of a trifle bowl (or a regular big bowl) then get some of the berry juice and put in the cake so it can absorb the juice, then put berries on, then add the whipped cream. Repeat with the next two layers, and viola!

You can add more berries to the top or leave it as is, we put some on top to make it extra pretty. I would recommend making this ahead of time so the cake can absorb the juices and get more flavorful, but you can always have it right away.  This is the perfect dessert for a gathering, brunch, or even a Easter dinner. πŸ˜‰
