Strawberry Shortcake Trifle Recipe

 
Strawberry Shortcake Trifle
 

I spent the week searching for the perfect Strawberry Shortcake Trifle recipe for our Easter celebration. I didn’t find just one recipe that I loved but I found quite a few that had parts that I loved. So I combined all those parts into one recipe. Risky when you have 25+ people showing up at your house expecting the yumminess. I’m thankful to say this recipe ended up being amazing! We had no leftovers, not even a crumb! I even caught someone, not naming any names of course, licking the bowl!

 

 
Ingredients:
 

1 large Angel Food Cake
8 oz cream cheese, softened
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
12 oz container Cool Whip, thawed
1 cup sugar
3 T cornstarch
3 T powdered strawberry Jell-o
1 cup water
2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered

 

 

Mix together cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk and Cool Whip until blended and smooth.

 

 

Combine sugar, cornstarch, jello powder and water together in medium saucepan.

 

 

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.

 

 

Cut angel food cake into 1 inch pieces.

 

 

Cut strawberries into quarters. If berries are on smaller side, you can half them instead.

 

 

Layer 1/3 of cake pieces in bottom of Trifle bowl.

 

 

Add quartered strawberries to the glaze.

 

 

Add 1/3 of strawberry glaze over top of cake layer.

 

 

Smooth 1/3 of cream cheese custard over top of glaze.

 

 

Repeat layers twice with remaining cake pieces, glaze and custard.

 

 

Garnish with halved strawberries.

 

 

 

Chill for several hours.

 

 

Look at those yummy layers! Not one crumb leftover, I tell you.
