Ingredients

  • 1 (13 oz) store-bought or homemade angel food cake
  • Fresh mint leaves , for garnish (optional)

Blueberry sauce

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water

Cheesecake topping

  • 1 1/2 cups (355ml) heavy cream
  • 12 oz . cream cheese , softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (90g) powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. For the Blueberry Sauce: In a medium saucepan whisk together granulated sugar and cornstarch. Mix in water and lemon juice. Add in frozen blueberries. 

  2. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking frequently. Allow mixture to boil for about 2 minutes until thickened. 
  3. Let cool then chill completely (to speed chill I put it in a bowl in the freezer and stirred about every 5 minutes to until cold).
  4. For the cheesecake topping: In a medium chilled mixing bowl* whip heavy cream using an electric hand mixer until stiff peaks form. 
  5. In a separate large mixing bowl whip cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar using hand mixer until smooth and slightly fluffy. Fold whipped cream mixture into cream cheese mixture.
  6. To assemble trifles: Gently cut angel food cake into small cubes using a serrated knife. Divide half of the angel food cake cubes among cups. 

  7. Place cheesecake topping in a piping bag fitted with a large round tip and pipe half of the cheesecake filling over angel food cake layer.
  8.  Top with 1 - 2 spoonfuls of blueberry sauce then repeat layering once more. Garnish with mint if desired and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • *To chill bowl pop it in the freezer for 5 minutes.
  • You should be able to get about 7 - 8 cups filled but it will vary depending on the size of the cups. You can get more if you only do one set of layers in smaller cups.
