Patriotic Berry Trifle #Recipe

Patriotic Berry Trifle #Recipe


I just found out I would need to come up with a few "treats" for an impromptu Memorial Day BBQ. If you’re short on time, yet looking for some creativity this Patriotic Berry Trifle is perfect.
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1cup heavy cream
  • 1 store-bought pound cake, cut into slices
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed and dried
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries

In a medium-sized bowl, beat together, cream cheese and sugar on high speed until fluffy. Slowly add in heavy cream, mixing on a medium speed until the mixture has a light, whipped texture.

Covering the bottom of a medium sized serving bowl; add a layer of pound cake. Spoon the cream cheese mixture over the top, using a spoon to spread the mixture into a smooth layer; top with blueberries and raspberries.  Repeat layers.

Cover, and let set in refrigerator. Serve chilled.

I love that this is a shortcut to a totally "homemade" recipe! We love to use Sara Lee's frozen pound cake! Looks and sounds delicious and so glad that I finally have a trifle bowl.!

Another easy-peasy one from you - thanks! I did get a trifle bowl for Christmas (combo cake stand) so I can make a huge batch of this for our Memorial Day BBQ.

This is a great recipe for the 4th of July! I like the fruit in this recipe with the cream cheese! Everything goes well together!

@MD KennedyIt really is super easy. The perfect "filling" for that trifle bowl this weekend.

Raspberries ARE so expensive here this year. I'm going to do this, but substitute strawberries! Another substitute could be the dessert shells (instead of pound cake) often found in the bakery. This week they're onsale for a SONG and I may cut those up. Don't hate me for subbing and adjusting so many things!! :D

This is such a mouth-watering recipe. Though raspberry is quite hard to find here in our place.

This was so good and well received on Memorial Day - I'm going to make it again for the 4th of July - assuming the price of the berries isn't astronomical (they were patriotically affordable last week!)

One quick comment though :

I was in a hurry and when I didn't see any pound cake - I cheated and used those little Twinkie-like dessert shells that Lori B suggested above... And, maybe because I assembled them the night before (or the raspberries were TOO ripe & juicy) they tended to become pretty mushy :- (

Next time I'll go with the pound cake (Sara Lee is good and convenient) - but I'm also thinking a tempting "substitute" would be LEMON Pound Cake - I know it's great with blueberries!

This is another great recipe for the 4th of July and summer. I wonder if I could substitute black berries when they get here which will be soon. Thanks again. Buying the pound cake makes it easier too!! Rita Spratlen
