There are times when you need to make an impressive dessert and don’t have a ton of time. But what you do have working in your favor are a few pints of perfectly ripe, beautiful berries sitting on the counter. Pair it with some angel food cake, a jar of lemon curd, and whipped cream and you have a drool-worthy dessert in literally minutes. It tastes fresh and light and is a sweet way to end a meal. (Admittedly, I have eaten it for breakfast too, it tastes good any time of day.)
This is one of my go-to desserts in the spring and summer because not only is it gorgeous to look at, it is no bake. I love not having to heat up my oven if I don’t have to. It uses just a few ingredients that I always have stocked in my pantry and fridge. Before you know it, you’ve knocked out dessert that people will beg to have the recipe for.
The beauty of a trifle is that you can use whatever ingredients you have and make it your own. If peaches look good, use them. Make it to suit your taste. You can make them a few hours ahead and keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve them. They actually taste better the longer they chill. Sometimes I make one big trifle and sometimes I make individual sized ones. I love to serve these in small mason jars. Perfect picnic food. A cute way to serve them is in a tub filled with ice. They chill out and your guests can grab and go. The lemon cream is also a great little recipe to have in your back pocket. It is amazing on a warm scone.
