Spelt Angel Food Fruit Trifle
From Cindy Widder, GM Berlin Natural Bakery
If you are looking for something that looks so impressive and will make your friends and family think you went to a lot of work to make a delicious dessert for them…this is the recipe for you! I have gotten more rave reviews on this dessert I think, than I have on almost anything else I’ve made. And the BIG secret??? It is absolutely simple to make. Shhhh…don’t tell anyone…let’s just keep it between you and me!
This is a very versatile dessert because you can use any type of fresh fruit that is currently available, or you could even use pie filling instead of the fruit if you wanted. Just experiment to your heart’s content.
I am really excited to share this recipe with you because we recently just launched this brand new product in the bakery and it has been received extremely well by our loyal customers!
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream – I know it sounds strange, but it’s great!
½ cup cold milk
1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed*
2 loaves of Berlin Natural Bakery Spelt Angel Food
cut into bite sized cubes
Fresh fruit (strawberries, raspberries, peaches, blueberries, whatever you prefer)
- In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the sour cream; mix well.
- In a small bowl, beat milk and pudding mix on low speed (or by hand) for 2 minutes. Stir into cream cheese mixture. Fold in whipped topping.
- In a 2 – ½ qt. trifle bowl (or use whatever container you want…..you could even use a new plastic bucket in summer and use the plastic shovel for a scoop), layer half of the cream cheese mixture, angel food cubes and fruit. Repeat layers. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 12-16 servings.
*Since I do not like frozen whipped topping, I always make homemade whipped cream. For this recipe, take 2 small cartons of whipping cream, and whip on high until thick. Add ½ cup sugar and ½ tsp vanilla and you are good to go.
I doubled this recipe and instead of just two layers, I layered it three times. On the first layer, I used sliced strawberries and blueberries. On the second layer I used sliced peaches and on the third layer I did another layer of the sliced strawberries and blueberries. It took about 1 ½ quarts of fresh strawberries, 1 pint of blueberries and 6 large peaches.
Hope you enjoy this dessert as much as I do. Until next time….Happy Baking!!
