Easy berry trifle is not only a delicious dessert it is also a stunning dessert. It’s one that is sure to impress your family and friends. The one nice thing about this trifle dessert is there are no set rules. You can add your favorite berries, cake, and pudding.
I decided to make individual trifles, but if you prefer you can make one trifle and put in a trifle bowl. I wanted to show off the new “dessert dishes” that I just purchased.
Mike and I have been going to some estate sales this summer. We have gone to a few interesting sales some good and some not so good. The last one that we went to I spied these dessert glasses. I really fell in love with them and knew that I had to buy them even though I really didn’t need them.
I love the simplicity of the glasses. They are made for great desserts and I thought the trifle was a fitting dessert for their first use. And let me tell you they were super cheap, that is a good thing.
As for this trifle, I made a pound cake, but feel free to purchase a pound cake, angel food cake, or whatever you would like to use. I used blueberries and strawberries because they were in my refrigerator and they needed to be used up before I had to toss them. But also they make a lovely combination.
I used boxed pudding and added whipped cream to lighten up. For the top, I used sweetened whipped cream. As you can see I used blueberries and strawberries, but if you prefer other fruits go for it.
Easy berry trifle can be made the day before and can be made with store boughten cake, which makes this a winner dessert all the way around.
For other easy desserts take a look at these:
- 1 Pound cake
- 1 3.4 ounce box vanilla pudding
- 1 3/4 cup milk
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup blueberries
- 2 cups strawberries
Wash and dry the fruit. Slice the strawberries.
Cut the pound cake into small bites size squares. You will want about 4 cups
In a medium bowl mix the pudding and milk according to the directions on the box.
In a large bowl add the 2 cups of whipping cream. Beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Remove 1/2 of the whipping cream and mix in with the pudding.
Add the 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar and vanilla to the remaining whipping cream and beat until stiff peaks form.
To assemble: Add about 1/2 of the cake to the dessert cups. Top with the pudding whipped cream mixture (using only half). Top the pudding with the berries using 1/3 of the berries. Repeat the procedure. When the second layer is completed topped with sweetened whipped cream and remaining berries
