A Very Berry Trifle

filed under: White Cakes on March 21, 2012

Today I share with you a little secret.  Prior to this recipe, I had never added the 7th ingredient in a trifle before. I was shocked at what it did to this recipe! Next time you make a trifle, be sure to try this!

Berry Trifle

A trifle is simple. Layer cake with whipped topping and fruit. But it’s how you make it that really makes the difference!

I chose strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries for this trifle as they just happen to be the most popular fruits in our house. Feel free to stick to one specific fruit or add whatever you fancy!

As I mentioned above, the 7th ingredient in this recipe is what really put it over the top for me.

I decided to make my own homemade whipped cream and added Orange Extract to it. WOW, did it ever make a huge impact!

Angel Food Cake

My recipe for Angel Food Cake is perfection, but in the off chance you want to save time, feel free to buy store-bought or even make from a box mix. No matter what you do, this tall and flavorful trifle is sure to impress anyone who tries it!

What is the best thing about this Very Berry Trifle?  That orange-infused whipped topping.  Seriously, I would never have thought of using  Orange Extract, but it is nothing short of scrumptious.  I am now trying to incorporate that whipped delight into everything I make!!

    Can the sour cream be substituted with plain Greek yogurt possibly?

      I’m sure

    I don’t see why not. Yogurt Has been used instead of sour cream for many receipes.

  • Jill says:
