I was looking for something that would incorporate fresh fruit with the red, white and blue of Memorial Day or the Fourth of July, and this one from Sunny Anderson is a winner!

Ingredients

1/4 + 2/3 c
sugar
1/4 c
fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp
almond extract
1
premade angel food cake, cut into 1-inch slices
1 lb
cream cheese, at room temperature
2 c
heavy cream, at room temperature
2 pt
blueberries, fresh
2 pt
strawberries, hulled and sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat 1/4 cup sugar, the lemon juice and 1/4 cup water in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and stir in the almond extract.
2
Brush both sides of each slice of cake with the syrup. Cut the slices into 1-inch cubes.
3
Beat the remaining 2/3 cup sugar and the cream cheese with a mixer on medium speed until smooth and light. Add the cream and beat on medium-high speed until smooth and the consistency of whipped cream.

Note: I used frozen blueberries for the inside of the trifle, as they are not as tart as the 'fresh' ones I can get in Oklahoma. I did use 'fresh' ones for the top, though.
