The Best Easter & Spring Dessert: Strawberry Trifle Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 1 Loaf Pound Cake, thawed and cut into 1" squares
  • 1½ Cups Sugar (divided)
  • 2 Packages Cream Cheese (8 oz.)
  • 3 Tbls Orange Juice
  • 2 or 3 Pints Fresh Strawberries, sliced
  • 4 Cups Whipped Cream
  • 2 Squares Semi-Sweet Chocolate, curls for garnish (optional)
  1. In a bowl, toss strawberries with ½ Cup of Sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, orange juice, and remaining sugar until smooth. Add 3 Cups Whipped Cream. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, add 1 Cup of the strawberries you tossed with sugar. I like to smash these to drizzle over the pound cake. Set these aside for now.
  4. In a trifle dish, place half of the Pound Cake in the bottom. Drizzle half of the smashed strawberries over the pound cake. Cover with half of the Cream Cheese mixture and half of the strawberries. Repeat layers.
I like to end my layers with strawberries, so sometimes I will buy an extra pint to add fresh strawberries to the top and I end with a cup of whipped cream on top in the middle with a few strawberries neatly arranged on top. You can also garnish with chocolate curls!

I usually taste test as I go. I have never really measured everything, so it may not need this much sugar! I think this looks best in a trifle dish so you can see all of the beautiful layers! You can get a Trifle Dish very cheap for less than $20! Please let me know if you make this and what everyone thought of it! What is your favorite Spring time recipe? I especially love ones that are no bake!

  • Ok… so I didn’t even know this dessert existed until about 10 months ago when a friend had it for her birthday. After that I was hooked. I need to try this recipe for myself. YUM! – Katy

  • Ooh, that looks yummy! The strawberry on top of the whipped cream totally makes the dish, I think. 😀 Would love to try this, but as you suggested, I’ll need to pick up a Trifle Dish first, lol. 🙂

  • This looks like a great End of the Week Dessert

  • OMG. I think I just died and went to heaven. 🙂

  • Kathy

    How far in advance can you make this dish? Wouldn’t want it to be too soggy….just trying to plan ahead! Thanks!

    • Bandit’s Mom

      Kathy, I usually make it the night before so the juices can soak in to the pound cake. I would think a few days ahead would be ok. I have never made it more than the night before though. It is delicious!

  • Kaitlyn

    Do you use the can of whipped cream or do you use cool whip? Thanks! 🙂

    • Bandit’s Mom

      I always buy the cool whip, but I would think you could use either one. Thanks 🙂

  • Andrea

    Do you make the whipped cream from scratch? Can you use Cool Whip?

    • Bandit’s Mom

      I actually use cool whip. I think I’ll change that in the ingredients. Thanks and let me know if you make it! It is yuummmy!

  • kimbuckjr

    This may be a real stupid question, but do you think I could use any other fruit than strawberries? I’m not one for strawberries, so anything other than strawberries would be ‘FABU!’
    Thank you!

    • Giveaway Bandit

      I wouldn’t see why not! I think it would be just as delicious with other berries.
