This is the perfect summer dessert.

This is the perfect dessert for me.
angel berry trifle

My favorite cake is angel food cake and I have a small obsession with berries.

So when I combine the two…. I fall in love.

I just wanted to recommend a couple recipes to all of you out there.

First is this homemade angel food cake recipe from Martha.
You can buy one in a hurry and make this dessert really easily.
You can also make it from a box mix for just a couple of dollars.
Or you can go all out and make it like my Martha. It is heaven. Period. End of story.
Once I made it this way, I haven’t gone back.

Okay, let me get back to the main idea here.
You need to “cube” your heavenly cake.
layer 1

Now layer your pudding-ish goodness.
I made the pudding layer according to a this recipe.
(I cut the amount of sour cream in half and I like it a little better).
layer 2

Then the berries. Oh… the berry goodness. {Sigh}
These were from the grocery store and were great, but the fruit stand’s berries are even better.
layer 3

Layer it on up, until your trifle bowl is full to the brim.
Top it off with some good old cool whip, more berries and some mint leaves.

I also had some that didn’t fit in the bowl, so I made a little personal one.
Even though my husband calls this a “chick dessert,” he didn’t complain when he ate this:
individual size

How fab would these babies be at a shower or get-together?

I love to pass on the yumminess I’ve discovered! Enjoy!

p.s. Did I mention this is low fat! You now have official permission to make this. ­čÖé

p.p.s. If you’re a berry lover like me, also try Pioneer Woman’s blackberry cobbler. Yum!
