Angel Food Cake and Mixed Berry Trifle

Updated on October 6, 2015

Recipe Courtesy of Patrick and Gina Neely

As in the title, this recipe is one of Patrick and Gina Neely, from the Food Network channel. I changed just a few minor things.

Trifles are something anyone can make, even if you swear you can't bake. There is no baking involved, just putting together different ingredients. This is just one recipe, there are a thousand different ways you can do this.

The only thing is I wouldn't take it on a picnic unless you have a really great cooler that will keep it cold. It's good for your family or friends or even to take to someone's house where you have been invited for dinner or potluck at your church. There isn't anything in here that someone wouldn't like. And, this particular recipe is a healthy one, which you will see in the recipe.

So you young gals, if you want to impress your sweetheart or his family and you think you can't bake, try this and you will be a hit. I promise.

5 stars from 4 ratings of Angel food Cake and Mixed Berry Trifle

Options

This recipe is mostly fat free but you can add 2% Greek yogurt if you like and you can change the fruit, but these seem to work out the best and look so pretty.

If your family absolutely does not like Angel Food cake then you can opt for pound cake.

Prep time: 20 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 8 to 10 servngs
  • 5 cups fresh strawberries, hulled, and sliced
  • 6 oz. container fresh blueberries
  • 6 oz. container fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 4 cups Vanilla Greek Yogurt, fat free
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar (10X)
  • 1 (17oz.) store-bought angel food cake

Directions

  1. Add the berries to a bowl with the sugar and orange juice and lit it set at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes, until juices start to flow.
  2. Meanwhile, add the yogurt and honey to a bowl. Stir with a spoon to mix in the honey and 10X sugar so the mixture will be more spreadable.
  3. Cut or break apart the angel food cake into large chunks and add about 1/3 of the cake to the bottom of a medium trifle dish. (I don't have one so I just used a clear glass bowl). Add a layer of the berries, then a layer of the yogurt mixture and repeat the layers reserving some of the yogurt for the top.
  4. Finish the top with a few spoonfuls of yogurt in the center and decorate as you like.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour or up to overnight. Enjoy!

      Hi Rachel,

      Wow...what a beautiful dessert and as desserts go...a healthy one as well. Very often we start off our mornings with some Greek yogurt and fresh berries. Your photos are enticing and will probably have many people making this dessert. Thanks for sharing this with us. I will also share and pin to my cakes and sweet breads board.

      This looks delicious! It is perfect for us now, in the summer when I really don't want to turn the oven on even for five minutes. Another great desert I will need to make. I'm sure my kids will be impressed and think of it's yummy. Thank you for sharing this recipe. (Also, I had no idea what a trifle was until now, I learned a new word, too).

      Thank you sooo much for educating me. Now I know what confections sugar is. Your very kind to answer all my questions. Again, can't wait to try this delicious dessert-my friends will think I'm a Goddess. LOL

      Hi Linda, I'm very appreciative for your visits. It means a lot to me. Confections sugar is the same thing as 10X sugar. It's in the sugar aisle of your grocery store and it has more of a powder form. It's used in frostings mostly but I use it when I want to sweeten the whip cream because it dissolves easily. Greek yogurt is a little thicker then most yogurts and holds up better in the recipes. I also appreciate your votes.

      Blessings to you.

      I am so excited to try this scrumptious recipe. What is confectioners sugar and what do mean by 10x-I've been noticing lately that Greek yogurt is in a ton of recipe's-must be tasty and make recipe's moist. Hit all buttons except funny and voted up and pinned. Thanks so much!
