Red Velvet Trifle

Hands-on time 25 mins
Total time 3 hrs
Yield Makes 10 servings
This trifle has a unique mixture of flavors and textures from the creamy yogurt and cream cheese and the moist red velvet cake. Top this dessert with raspberries for a light and satisfying treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 (18.25-oz.) package DUNCAN HINES Moist Deluxe Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 2 (8-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 pt. fresh raspberries
  • Garnish: fresh mint sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare cake batter as directed. Pour batter into a greased and floured 13- x 9-inch pan.

  2. Bake at 350° for 28 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

  3. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer 1 minute or until creamy. Add yogurt, powdered sugar, and lemon zest. Beat 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed. Cover and chill.

  4. Remove cake from oven. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour).

  5. Invert cake onto a cutting board. Cut rounded top off of cake. Trim and discard edges of cake. Cut cake into 32 pieces.

  6. Arrange about one-third of cake pieces in a 3-qt. trifle dish. Carefully spread one-third of chilled cream cheese mixture over cake. Repeat layers 2 times, smoothing top layer of cream cheese mixture over cake pieces. Top with raspberries. Cover and chill 1 hour before serving. Garnish, if desired.
