Strawberry Cream Trifle

Strawberry Cream Trifle

Whether you’re looking for an easy dessert for summer or something red and delicious to make for Valentine’s Day, my Strawberry Cream Trifle wins.

My family was a huge fan of this little dessert.  Just look…

…they couldn’t wait for me to photograph so that they could dig in!

In honor of the first day of February, I thought we all needed a little something sweet and red to begin our month.

Happy February, friends!  And happy Friday too! xo

This recipe makes one big trifle. 

Shopping List
1 pound cake (either store bought or homemade), torn into big chunks
1 (5 oz) box of instant vanilla pudding
2 cups of milk (I used 2%)
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1 (8 oz) container of Cool Whip or another whipped topping
1 (8 oz) jar of strawberry jam (I used homemade)
1 pint of strawberries, sliced

First, tear your pound cake into big chunks, set aside.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together your pudding and milk for about two minutes.  After it starts to thicken up, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

After that, beat your cream cheese into your pudding.

Next, it’s time to layer!  We layered pudding, Cool Whip, jam, crumbled cake, sliced strawberries (and repeat).  You really can layer any way you like, but I wanted to end with crumbled cake and sliced berries across the top.

Cover and refrigerate at least two hours up to 24.

That’s it!  Serve and enjoy with all of your sweeties. xo

    Do you think I could use chocolate cake? Would it still taste as good? Would you change anything? I was think of using what I had at home.

      Jaime – Was just reading your comment and thought if you are using chocolate cake, it could be yummy to swap the vanilla pudding for chocolate pudding and the strawberries and strawberry jam to raspberries and raspberry jam. Mmmm! I’m sure strawberries would be delicious, too.

    Seriously, you have the best recipes! (your corn and bacon pasta is on constant rotation in my house as it is a favorite!) Thank you for sharing your amazing talent!
