Layered Berry Trifle

Quick! There's still time to make this with those end-of-summer, disappearing berries!

This Layered Berry Trifle is an easy-to-throw-together dessert. You don't have to own a trifle bowl, but if you can find some sort of pretty, tall glass bowl- that works too. The recipe layers store-bought pound cake (or homemade if you're so inclined) that has been brushed with lemon-syrup, a sugared cream cheese-whipped cream, and any berries that you're diggin' at the moment.

It's fresh. It's simple. It's sooo good. Make it a little less evil by using lowfat cream cheese and fat-free pound cake.

This recipe can be found HERE.

  3. That is one gorgeous looking trifle! My mouth is watering! I wish our berries here looked as good as those. The ones we're getting lately look (and taste) pretty anemic.

  33. It's funny, because I own 2 trifle bowls (they work great to take salads in to pot lucks!) but I haven't made a trifle in ages. This is gorgeous!

  34. That is one good lookin' trifle! I love the layered colors, and I bet it tasted terrific! I like the use of lemon syrup, I bet it added just the right amount of tang! I'd go for the full evil version with regular cr cheese!
