From the Kitchen!

The awesome weather yesterday had us thinking about and craving some yummy summer desserts! We decided to share one of our favorites!

Triple-Berry Trifle!

Prep Time- 15 minutes
Total Time- 3 Hours
Servings- 12

1 box of white cake mix (water, vegtable oil, & eggs whites called for in mix)
1 pint blueberries
1 pint raspberries
1 pint strawberries, halved
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup raspberry-flavored liqueur or use cranberry-raspberry juice
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Make cake as directed on box for 13x9 pan. Run knife around sides to loosen cake. Cool completely about 1 hour.

2. While cake cools in medium bowl gently mix berries, sugar, and raspberry liqueur.

3. In chilled large bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.

4. Cut cake into 1 inch pieces. In glass trifle arrange half the pieces, Spoon half of the berry mixture over the cake, top with half of the whipped cream. Repeat layers. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

This is a great dessert to share with a crowd and very refreshing on hot days! Enjoy!

Until next time...
