I won first prize in a dairy recipe contest with this tasty strawberry trifle. You can double the recipe and make two for large groups. —Norma Steiner, Monroe, Wisconsin


  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 8 cups cubed angel food cake
  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries


  1. In a large bowl, beat the milk, sour cream, pudding mix and orange zest on low speed until thickened. Fold in whipped cream.
  2. Place half the cake cubes in a 3-qt. glass bowl. Arrange a third of the strawberries around sides of bowl and over cake; top with half the pudding mixture. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining berries. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • To avoid squishing light-as-air angel food cake, freeze it overnight, then cut it with a serrated knife, using a back-and-forth motion.
  • One tablespoon orange liqueur in the sour cream mixture adds a special touch.
