Red White and Blue Trifle Recipe – Easy Patriotic Dessert

  • Author: Kathy
  • Prep Time: 25
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 8-12 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 pound cake
  • 2 quarts Strawberries
  • 2 pints blueberries
  • 2 tubs cool whip



  1. If you baked your cake from scratch, make sure it’s completely cool.
  2. Wash and pad dry fruit with a paper towel. Slice the strawberries. Set some aside for the topping and divide the rest into two portions.
  3. Cut the cake into slices and then in cubes, about 1″ x 1″ cubes.
  4. In the trifle dish put a layer of pound cake pieces using half of the cake.
  5. Add a layer of 1/3 of the cool whip topping over the pieces of pound cake.
  6. Place layer of about half strawberries and blueberries over the whipped topping.
  7. Repeat the layers.
  8. Finish with the remaining cool whip and berries on top.
  9. Chill until you’re ready to serve.



You can make your own pound cake or just buy one from the deli to make it easy. Angel food cake is a delicious option, too.

If you prefer, you could use homemade whipped cream instead of Cool Whip.

If you’re being careful about calories, use a low-fat whipped cream. You could even switch out the cake for a low-sugar version and replace the whipped cream with yogurt.
