Clayton woman’s Strawberry Trifle takes top prize in State Farmers Market Strawberry Dessert contest

RALEIGH -- Margaret Hicks of Clayton won $100 and bragging rights in the State Farmers Market Strawberry Dessert Contest for her Strawberry Trifle recipe.

Second-place honors and $75 went to Lisa Raschke of Raleigh for her Strawberry Tiramisu recipe. Third place and $50 went to Kristina G. Harris of Raleigh for her Strawberry-Lemon Shortcake recipe. Judges recognized a Strawberry-Berry Cobbler by Cheri Szcodronski of Pittsboro with an honorable mention.

Following is the winning recipe:

Strawberry Trifle

1 cup cold milk
8 ounces of sour cream
1 3.4-ounce package instant Vanilla pudding mix
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
8 cups cubed Angel Food cake
4 cups sliced strawberries

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

Desserts were judged on flavor, appearance, texture, tenderness and quality, ease of preparation and creativity. Each recipe had to include at least two cups of North Carolina strawberries.    
The contest was sponsored by the N.C. Strawberry Association, the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the State Farmers Market.
