Strawberry & Vanilla Cake Trifle… A fun dessert I came up with over Labor Day weekend!
How pretty is that?!
I wanted a very moist vanilla cake texture. So I used coconut flour, with cream cheese and greek yogurt to get that moist cake I wanted.
Because I used coconut flour this is completely gluten free, not to mention nut free and sugar free.
I cooked the cake in a regular 9X13 baking dish that I greased well. Allowed that to cool a bit and then cut in chunks.
I layered the cake into a trifle dish. Added sweetened sliced strawberries. Then added the sweetened heavy whip I turned into whipped cream.
Once finished, allow this to cool in the fridge for a while… it was extra yummy the next day!
For you Trim Healthy Mama, I sweetened this with THM Gentle Sweet. Wow oh wow, I cannot tell you how much I love that sweetener. If you have not tried it you can purchase it through my affiliate link here. This dessert would be an S.
Hope you enjoy!
