Easy Strawberry Trifle
So what makes this strawberry trifle so easy and great? It’s creamy, fruity and delicious! Let’s start with the strawberry component – a homemade strawberry sauce. It’s made with loads of strawberries, just a touch of sugar and some sherry wine to mellow out the sweetness. This strawberry sauce is then used to soak store-bought Angel food cake or Italian lady fingers. Want to make your own? I have a great recipe for Angel Food Cake.
For the creamy cheesecake-y filling, I used instant vanilla pudding, cool whip and cream cheese. I LOVE the flavor of the filling! It’s so easy to make yet incredibly delicious! It’s fluffy, creamy and goes so well with the Angel food cake and strawberry sauce! You can enjoy this no-bake dessert recipe right away or let it stand in the refrigerator overnight!
Make Your Own Pudding!
Want to make your own pudding instead of using instant pudding? Check out my recipe for ‘Vanilla Pastry Cream’! This easy pastry cream is a perfect replacement of pudding. You can also make this ahead of time. Just let the cream cool completely, then use it in this recipe!
