Because the only thing that could possibly enhance the taste of a strawberry would be freshly whipped cream....
"Pile it on high!" Mom said to me. :)
Strawberry Shortcake Trifle
Sour Cream Pound Cake, cubed
Fresh Strawberries, choppedSugar/Stevia
For the whipped cream:
Heavy Whipping Cream, very cold
Real Vanilla Extract
Spoons for Licking (important!!)
This can't get any easier!
Assemble in layers like you would any shortcake, but in a large trifle dish. I started mine with the strawberries that sat with sugar for at least half an hour to get juicy. Next add cubes of cake, more strawberries and then whipped cream. Start over again with the strawberries. I ended the trifle with strawberries, but made a huge mound of the whipped cream in the center for a grand finale! Delicious!
As a yummy variation, I have toasted sliced almonds and layered that with the whipped cream. If you do that, also add a dash of almond extract to the cream. This variation is unreal!
Serve on a hot day to a relaxed crowd. This is a classic summertime dessert that will be sure to please all!
Don't you love when you serve something so easy, yet beautiful?
I don't have time to chat, unfortunately, but I had to share this with y'all today! We're going back home to visit for a couple of nights. Pa (Mr. Cozy's grandad) is going to look at our antique table. Unfortunately it was hurt in the move. He's a carpenter by trade, and he's the best! Back to the country we go for a bit.
Have a blessed day!
