  • Beat the heavy cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in the sugar until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate cream until needed.

  • Cut pound cake into slices 1/3 inch wide, discarding cake ends.

  • Assemble the trifle by placing a layer of cake slices in the bottom of a glass serving bowl. Spoon half the berry mixture with juice over the cake slices. Cover with half of the whipped cream, and sprinkle with half the coconut. Repeat layering with the remaining cake slices, berries and juice, whipped cream, and coconut. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

This is so yummy! I made a few changes though...I didn't have cream sherry so I omitted it and I added some roughly chopped walnuts in the layers on top of the toasted coconut...it was so good I have made it a couple of times...it is easy quick looks (and tastes) good. Read More

Super simple recipe to make. I buy fresh berries when they are in season and this is my go to recipe for them. I hardly ever remember to add the sherry though. Chill the mixing bowl before whipping the cream and it will go much faster! Read More

I scaled this down to 4 servings and made them into "mini" trifles. They turned out so cute and they are delicious! I have never heard of cream sherry before so I used a bit of regular sherry. I also had a small bit of strawberry sauce left in my fridge that I just tossed in with the berries to use it up. Nice summer dessert! Read More
