Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

Summer is a great time for strawberries, when they are in season, and fresh! This is a great Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle recipe that you can enjoy in the summer and throughout the year if you have some on hand frozen or preserved somehow. This recipe would be a great summer or spring dessert, with it's nice, light and fluffy white cake and whipped cream, mixed with the awesome flavour of strawberries. Plus, it has a great cheesecake flavour, which almost everyone loves, and this is a great alternative to the rich chocolate flavour that can be really heavy for the summer months, but great in fall and winter.

All you have to do is choose the perfect bowl, there are even specific trifle bowls that are made just for trifles, they are usually taller, cylinder shaped bowls on a pillar so the trifle can be on perfect display! Trifle is a wonderful dessert that was first made in 1587 and it originally consisted of sugar, ginger and rosewater. The recipe first appeared in a book called 'The good housewife's Jewell' by Thomas Dawson. Then a while later, there was a new version made with eggs, and then added to bread soaked in alcohol.

Then also, jelly was used in trifles as well as another variation. There are other variations, like this cheesecake one, and sometimes alcohol like port, madeira wine or sweet sherry. Mostly known as a British dessert, there are however different variations in different countries. This particular recipe doesn't seem to have any liquid in it like the original ones used to have. I quite like this version better than the alcohol soaked versions, just something about cake soaked in liquid seems like something that wouldn't be my favourite thing. But I would always try something once! Try out this delicious recipe! Head over to 'Melissa's Southern Kitchen Style' by following the link in the section below for more!
