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
- Add sugar to the strawberries, toss, and set aside for 15-20 minutes (longer if you can).
- 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.
- 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
