4th of July Recipe Ideas – Strawberry and Blueberry Trifle

This strawberry and blueberry trifle dessert was hands down the easiest dessert recipe I’ve made in a long, long time.  With all the fresh berries available in the stores, roadside stands and our gardens this time of year, it’s the perfect dish to bring along to a potluck or to a friends house.

Umm did I mention it was super easy to make?


1 vanilla cake mix + needed ingredients
1 pound strawberries
1 pound blueberries
1 tub cool whip {I used fresh whipping cream}


Bake {2} 9-inch cake layers according to the direction on the box.
Wash and pat dry fruit.
Hull and slice all but 6 strawberries and set aside in a bowl.
When the cake has cooled, trim the layers so they will fit into your trifle dish.
Then stack {from bottom to top} in this order:
Cake, whipping cream, sliced strawberries, cake, whipping cream.
Next add a ring of blueberries around the edge of the trifle dish about 1 inch wide.
Place 6 strawberries in the center of the trifle.

Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Are you doing anything exciting this year?

You can typically find heavy duty trifle dishes at Target {and other stores} for around $12- $15.  If you’d rather pay a little more to avoid the stores, Amazon currently has the Anchor Hocking Presence Trifle Bowl on sale for $20.47 and ships for free with Amazon Prime.
