I’m a big fan of strawberries! I’m happy to take them any way I can get them, but LOVE strawberries in trifle! This Strawberry n’ Cream Cakes Trifle with Vanilla Vodka is a grown up spin on a classic dessert!
Strawberry n’ Cream Cakes Trifle with Vanilla Vodka Ingredients:
1 Vanilla Cake, prepared
2 C. Strawberries, sliced
2 tsp. White Sugar
2oz Vanilla Vodka, divided
1 C. Heavy Whipping Cream
3 Tbs. Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
This recipe makes 4 servings.
Strawberry n’ Cream Cakes Trifle with Vanilla Vodka Directions:
In a small mixing bowl, combine your strawberries, white sugar, and 1oz of vanilla vodka. Mix until all strawberries are coated, and place in the refrigerator to soak.
In a mixing bowl, pour in 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, 3 Tbs. powdered sugar, and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Watch closely, and be careful not to over mix!
Using a mason jar lid or a cup, cut your cake into circles and place one layer in each of your trifle cups.
Add 1oz of vanilla vodka into a small bowl, and brush a thin layer over each cake. Add a scoop of strawberries, and finish with whipped cream.
Repeat the layers above until you run out of cake or room in your trifle cup. Finish with strawberries and whipped cream, and serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours*.
*If keeping in the refrigerator for later, hold off on the last layer of whipped cream until you are about to serve.
Let me tell you, these Strawberry n’ Cream Cakes Trifle with Vanilla Vodka are a crowd pleaser! One of my favorite things about this dessert is that you can easily adapt the recipe for 2 people or for 12! You’ll just need a few more strawberries 😉
