Make The Easiest Strawberry Trifle For The Summer

Summer desserts, here we come. A Strawberry Trifle, perhaps? This may not be the authentic recipe for a trifle but it’s certainly the easiest one you’d make. I made this for our Memorial Day family dinner but you can make this anytime during the summer and let’s say upcoming 4th of July celebrations by adding fresh blueberries for the blue component.

How easy? Well, by using a cake box mix. You can either make chiffon cake, angel food, cake, or just plain ‘ol white cake which is what I’ve used in this trifle. Depending on which kind of boxed cake you’re making, just follow the instructions from the box itself. The ingredients list will show what was needed according to the box.

The Easiest Strawberry Trifle


  • 1 box White Cake Mix
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • Oil spray + dust of flour (for the cake pan)
  • 1 tub Cool Whip
  • 1 pack fresh strawberries (wash thoroughly)
  • 3 tbsp granulate sugar
  • trifle bowl


  • Lightly coat the cake pan with oil spray the sprinkle dust of flour all around. Set aside.
  • Slice the strawberries. Place in a bowl. Sprinkle sugar and stir everything. This will take the tartness away from strawberries. Cover and chill in the fridge until ready to assemble.
  • Make the cake according to the box. For the white cake, mix together the dry contents, eggs, oil, and water. Preheat the ovento 350°
  • Pour the cake batter into the pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Let it cool in a baking rack.
  • Once completely cool, slice the white cake in cubes.
  • Here's the whip cream.
  • Get ready to assemble. Do this about 30-35 minutes before serving dessert.
  • First layer is the cake cubes, then some of the whip cream and then some of the strawberries. Repeat one more time for the remaining cake, whip cream, and strawberries.

VOILA! The easiest Strawberry Trifle you could make. If we’re going with a little bit of authenticity, you can make the custard base from the Banana Pudding recipe which by the way is another delicious summer dessert.
