This is one of those recipes that is so easy to throw together – it literally takes just a few minutes! That reason alone makes it the perfect dessert for taking to potlucks, picnics – or just when you want a fresh dessert on a weeknight!
And how can you go wrong with strawberries and angel food cake?
Often I will slice an angel food cake, spoon some strawberries over the top and garnish with a generous dollop of whipped cream or Cool Whip. That’s so quick and easy! BUT, if you take a couple more minutes you can make this pretty trifle dessert with the exact same ingredients and you’re family and friends will love you for it.
This recipe is for a potluck size large bowl trifle, but you can very easily half this recipe to make for your family at home.
