Red, White & Blue Mini-Trifle

My Dad-in-Law loves simple, fresh desserts & since it was just us (my hubby, our toddler) & Pop for Father's Day, I went with this easy fruit trifle. Fresh blueberries, strawberries, pound cake pieces & real whipped cream. Happy dad's day indeed! <3 Lishie

Red, White & Blue Mini Trifle
  • butter pound cake
  • strawberries
  • 1-2 tsp sugar
  • 1 TBSp lemon juice
  • blueberries
  • heavy whipping cream
Prep the layers:
Cut up cake into tiny square pieces; set aside.
Clean & core the strawberries. Slice into pieces & sprinkle the sugar & lemon juice on them; set aside.
Clean/destem the blueberries; set aside.
Whipped cream: 1 c heavy cream, 1 tsp Vanilla & 2 TBSp sugar
Beat the cream on high, slowly adding the vanilla, then sugar & continue to beat until thick & fluffy; set aside.
Layer the pound cake/strawberries/whipped cream/pound cake/whipped cream/blueberries. 

For a yummy variation, try balsamic, macerated strawberries!
