Strawberry Angel Trifle Recipe

I always get compliments when I bring this attractive and tasty trifle out of the refrigerator. Not only does it serve a big group nicely, I can make it ahead of time, too. —Lucille Belsham, Fort Fraser, British Columbia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 35 min. YIELD:12-16 servings

  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 5 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries, thawed and drained

"This is good, but not too sure why you would need all that sugar that is called for. I only used 3 tbsps, and that was just in the whipping cream."

"I make this quite often for family functions, but instead of sugar I use splenda , and I use lowfat diabetic friendly pound cake instead of angel food cake. It seems like there is never enough! But, I have to have to have my heavy cream for it."

"I would suggest draining the strawberry juice in the container for measuring the water. Then add water to the 2-cup line. This will add flavor and color to the gelatin and not waste the juice. Can't wait to try this recipe."

"If you want sugar free you can use Stevia, which is a plant that contains 0 calories. You can get it in most grocery stores and I would suggest a bottle of the powder form if you bake a lot. For example 1 cup of sugar has 770 calories and the same amount of Stevia has NO CALORIES. Also has no additives, preservatives or what I call chemicals. Fantastic for people with diabetes!!"

"Thank you Ruebenswife, for a great idea to do sugar free. My question is did you add any sugar or sugar subistute to the whip cream?????"

"This recipe is basically the same recipe I have been making for years in a 9 x 13 cake pan as a dessert that can be cut serving size. I do not add my extra berries to the jello and mushed berries but divide them between two layers. The trifle bowl just gives a more elegant looking service."
