Patriotic Berry Trifle Summer Dessert Recipe

Fresh berries, thick whipped cream, and pound cake make a patriotic and delicious trifle.


2 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 1/2 loaf pound cake
3 cups heavy whipping cream


This doesn't have to be a blender recipe, but it's too delicious not to share! You can pureé the individual fruits into spreadable layers, but we like the chunky texture.

Cut the pound cake into small cubes, about an inch and a half per side. Wash the berries. Hull and halve the strawberries. Pureé the berries individually, as desired.

Add a single layer of cubes at the bottom of a trifle dish (or large glass bowl). Cover with a thick layer of whipped cream, then a layer of berries. Repeat until dish is full.

Refrigerate an hour. (This allows the berry juice and whipped cream to soak into the pound cake, making it even more delicious.) Serve chilled.
