{Easy} Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

I was looking for an easy dessert to bring to my Aunt Myrtle's Easter dinner. Everything I was planning on making was either chocolate (which I am not a fan of) or elaborate and time consuming. While I was at the farmer's market on Saturday I saw fresh, local strawberries and knew what I was going to make, a strawberry shortcake trifle.

This trifle is easy to make and is perfect for a dinner party, Memorial Day BBQ, bridal shower and anywhere in between.

{Easy} Strawberry Shortcake Trifle



Ingredients

One container angel food cake or pound cake
3 containers fresh strawberries, cut
1 container blueberries (if you want)
1 box instant vanilla pudding
Fresh whipped cream

All the ingredients for a delicious dessert! 

Instructions:

  1. Prepare angel food cake according to package directions. To speed up the process, just buy a store made angel food cake.
  2. Mix vanilla instant pudding according to package directions. Once the pudding has firmed up, add fresh strawberries and blueberries. Don't add all the strawberries, you'll need some for garnish. Tip: The pudding should be a little runny -- it's fine!
  3. Make fresh whipped cream. Simply combine 2 tablespoons of sugar and one cup heavy whipping cream in a mixer and combine until stiff peaks form. 
  4. Assemble your trifle (directions below).
  5. Enjoy!
Assembly:
To create your first layer, put pieces of angel food cake in the bottom of your dish and squish it down to create a flat surface. Spread half the pudding mixture onto the layer of angel food cake and top with whipped cream. Repeat the layers in the same order; cake, pudding and whipped cream.


That's it! You're done! Simple, right? Garnish with additional strawberries on top for an instantly elegant dessert. Your friends will think you spent hours preparing your trifle. I recommend making this a few hours before you plan on eating it and be sure to refrigerate it.
