Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

A light and delicious trifle layered with strawberry sauce, angel food cake and whipped cream! This will be a hit wherever it is served!

Today is technically the first day of SPRING! I am ecstatic! I love spring and it is always so relieving, at least for me, to say goodbye to winter. Although, the weather doesn’t always know that the calendar has declared it springtime haha!
This Strawberry Shortcake Trifle is PERFECT for the upcoming warmer weather! It is very light and fresh. We served this at a family get together and people couldn’t keep there hands off it!
  • 1 angel food cake, cut into 1" cubes
  • 2 Tablespoons corn starch
  • 1½ Tablespoons cold water
  • 2½ cups quartered strawberries
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ water
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  1. In a small bowl, combine corn starch and cold water. Stir and set aside.
  2. In a medium sauce pan over medium high heat, combine strawberries, sugar, water and lemon juice. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and stir in corn starch water. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, beat heavy cream. Slowly add in ¾ cup sugar. Beat in vanilla and continue beating until soft-medium peaks are formed.
  6. Place ⅓ of the angel food cake on the bottom of a trifle dish.
  7. Spread ⅓ of the whip cream over the cake.
  8. Spread ⅓ of the strawberry sauce over the whip cream.
  9. Repeat the process 2 more times.
  10. Chill in fridge until ready to serve.
