Angel Food Cake Berry Trifle

Run right now and go make this Angel Food Cake Berry Trifle! Layers of light and airy angel food cake, sweet cream cheese vanilla pudding mix and fresh summer berries, served chilled for the most delicious summer dessert. Perfect for your next dinner party, picnic, backyard barbecue or any summer gathering. Use strawberries and blueberries for a fun red, white and blue theme great for Memorial Day or 4th of a July.

This Angel Food Cake Berry Trifle is easy to make and comes together in under 10 minutes. Let's take a look at each layer of deliciousness.

  • Cake- I used a pre-made store bought angel food cake to save time. You could always make your own, just be sure to allow it to cool completely before assembling. Pound cake or short cake would also be delicious in this recipe.

  • Pudding- For the yummy creamy pudding layer you will prepare a 3 oz box of vanilla pudding according to package directions. Make this first and place in the refrigerator so it has time to set up a bit. While your pudding is chilling use an electric mixer to beat 8 oz of softened cream cheese until smooth. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla extract and continue to mix. You will then add in your pudding and beat for 2 minutes until smooth and creamy. Use a spoon or spatula to fold in half of the whipped topping.

  • Berries- For my recipe I used a combination of strawberries and blueberries. You can use only one or add in blackberries, raspberries or banana slices

*Watch the full video above to see how I layered this yummy dessert and topped with extra berries and firework toothpicks for a fun Red, White and Blue theme.
