Patriotic Berry Trifle

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!

How to Make Patriotic Berry Trifle


  • 1Heat 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.
  • 2Brush both sides of each slice of cake with the syrup. Cut the slices into 1-inch cubes.
  • 3Beat 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.
  • 4Note: 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.
