I made this for dessert on Easter and it was the perfect choice! A wonderful dessert for special occasions. I made a scratch angel food cake but I did not include that in the cooking time. The recipe comes from America's Best Recipes -- A 2003 Hometown Collection.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 3 ingredients; fold in whipped topping. Toss cake pieces with lemon juice. Layer 1/3 of cake pieces and 1/3 of whipped topping mixture in 6 quart trifle bowl. Top with sliced strawberries.
  2. Layer half each of remaining cake, whipped topping mixture, blueberries, and raspberries. Repeat layers once. Sprinkle with coconut. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.

I have made this several times, and it is absolutely delicious. I have taken it to potlucks on a few occasions and have assembled the layers into single serving clear plastic cups. They still look gorgeous and are very easy to serve that way. I generally skip the coconut and decorate the top with berries. I love, love, love this recipe!

A nice, easy dessert. The hardest part is waiting 8 hours to eat it. I made two changes: I used 2 Sarah Lee poundcakes in place of the angel food cake (personal preference); increased the lemon yogurt to 12 ounces to make the cream mixture more lemony. Thank you for the recipe. Made for Summer Comfort Cafe 2009.

I made this for dessert and almost ate it all up in one setting. I had to use a gorgeous glass pitcher because I didn't have a glass bowl, and I don't know if it was more beautiful than it was delicious! I can't wait to make it again!
