Fruity Angel Food Cake Trifle

"From Quick Cooking 2003 Measure the trifle bowl to the cake and if the diameter of the cake is larger than the bowl, trim it to fit or you can cut the cake into cubes. Very pretty presentation. Allow 3 hours to chill before serving."

Questions & Replies

  1. Can I make this the night before?


  1. This was beautiful as well as tasty. I skipped the canned pears because they did not seem to add much, as far as color or flavor. My company loved it and ate it all. I will definitely make again.
  2. I made this for Christmas! The only changes I made were: I made a corn flour spongecake for the cake base, and I made my own whipped cream (and no blueberries). I made 2 of these trifles - one exact to recipe, and the other with the cake soaked in Creamy Sherry. They were both spectacular! They were also spooned into before I could take a photo!!! haha, but they were enjoyed by all. Thank you for the recipe :)
  3. This is a keeper!!! Since I am dieting, I used fat free milk, fat free pudding mix, and fat free whipped topping. I only used strawberries and blueberries, and it was delicious! My guests had THREE helpings!
  4. this came out wonderful although I wish I would have had the kiwi fruits my store did not have any, I used my recipe#79506 instead of the frozen whipped topping, I have to state to make certain that the pineapple tidbits are very well drained, or the cake will end up slightly soggy, thanks for sharing Mel!
  5. Light, fruity, creamy, and 5 stars for how beautiful it looks in a clear bowl. Try any combination of fruits and you won't go wrong. Made this for a family Mothers Day gathering and also for A Taste of Yellow-May's forum in honor of cancer survivors.
