Strawberry Angel-Food Triffle

If you have tasted a strawberry lately, chances are when you bit into it the fruit exploded in your mouth. Strawberries are in their prime so why not take advantage of them by featuring them in an easy dessert that can feed a large group? Store bought Cool Whip and angel food cake make this recipe a snap.

Strawberry Angel-Food Triffle
  • 1 pound frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 store-bought angel-food cake
  • 16-ounce container Cool Whip
  • Mint for garnish

Place the strawberries and sugar in a saucepan. Heat gently until the strawberries are soft and the sugar has dissolved. Allow the juices to reduce slightly, until they have the consistency of a thin syrup. Let cool.

Tear fist-sized pieces from the angel-food cake and use them to line the bottom of a large, clear bowl or trifle dish. Cover with a layer of Cool Whip and a layer of strawberries in syrup, filling in any holes in the previous layer. Add another layer of cake and continue building until all the ingredients have been used, ending with a few spoonfuls of Cool Whip and strawberries and a sprig of mint as a garnish.
