This Strawberries and Cream Cake is divine yet if you are looking for more berry recipes may I suggest Blueberry Shortcake or Berry Salsa?

Trifle isn’t usually on my must-make radar, and I don’t even know why?! When I do make it, I always think that I need to make it more often than I do. Actually, this thought is with each and every enjoyed bite.

Really, it’s the prime example of an easy summer dessert!

Yet, we have been enjoying trifle more and more lately, as my oldest started taking reins in the kitchen. Slowly and surely she’s building her own recipe box, and looking at her track record already, she might be taking over the recipe box here very soon.

She’s a natural in the kitchen, and doesn’t hold back when trying any recipe or meal.

In the summertime, I can’t get enough of our city market, I’m there each week loading up on fresh foods and right now I’m all about the berries!

Berry Trifle was first made when I scored a huge box of blueberries, more than I knew what to do with.

The recipe speaks for itself, there’s no further explanation required except to say that I’m all over this as I am to summer. It combines all of my favourite dessert items into one beautifully layered masterpiece.

I love the look of individual mason jar servings of berry trifle, yet you could make one big batch as well. 

Raise your spoon and give a toast to summer. Also try our Blackberry Cobbler. It’s a delicious summer berry recipe.

  3. Making layers in a cup or tall bowl, with the first layer being a few pieces of the scake, then add berries, then the whipped cream.... and so on.
  4. Once you have reached the top of the cup pour some of the berry sauce over it and decorate with a berry. You can also add a spoon of the sauce in the middle of the trifle too.

  1. This is one of the easiest trifle recipes I’ve seen. My family loves it, so I’ll be sure to try this variation.

  2. Yummmm, these look really good, easy enough to make too, I love the presentation in the mason jar!!

  3. I love a good trifle but I never make it either. I don’t know why since it’s so easy!

  4. Yum! I have never made trifle and I don’t think I have ever tried it! It looks delicious, though, and reminds me of an episode of Friends.

  5. I have to say that I don’t make trifle that often, not sure why since I do like it. I am thinking it might be good for dessert this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. We make it a few times a year, always in the summer when the fresh berries are out, yours looks delicious!
