Strawberry Amaretto Trifle

March 21, 2024 - Country Cooking

Strawberry Amaretto Trifle- pieces of Angel Food Cake, an amaretto cream cheese mixture and macerated strawberries are layered in a trifle bowl and topped with toasted almonds. Makes a delicious spring and summer dessert and the presentation is absolutely gorgeous.

What Is A Trifle?

A trifle is an English dessert that consists of layers of fruit, cake and cream presented in a glass bowl. Traditional trifles are made with sponge cakes soaked with sherry. Angel food cake is very similar to sponge cake but it is lacking egg yolks. Using store-bought angel food cake (you can usually find them in the deli section) makes this dessert easy and stress-free.

Substitutions

If you don’t have Amaretto, you can use 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract instead.

Pound Cake can be used instead of Angel Food Cake.

Peaches can be used instead of strawberries.

You can use frozen strawberries instead of fresh.

Make-Ahead Dessert

This trifle is a great make-ahead dessert. For best results, make 4 to 12 hours in advance.

Use A Trifle Bowl

I love my trifle bowl and use it all the time. It is great for layered salads too. Mine is about 8 inches in diameter and 6 inches deep. It is the perfect size for this trifle.

How To Store Strawberry Amaretto Trifle

Will keep for about 3 days in the refrigerator but the cream and strawberries start to break down over time.
