Raspberry- Lemon Trifle

I am definitely on a trifle kick lately. It is fun to create different flavor combinations and make a delicious dessert that is a crowd pleaser. This one looks really pretty and the flavors of lemon curd and whipped cream remind me of lemon meringue pie (one of my favorite desserts). Trifles are great to make for a party since it serves a lot of people and does not require any actually baking. If you want you can certainly bake your own cake and make lemon curd from scratch but they make perfectly good pre-made ingredients that you can find in your local market. This particular trifle was made in a small trifle bowl. If you have a large bowl you will need to double your ingredients.


1 Entemann's lemon pound cake, cubed
1- 1 1/2 cups of strawberry or raspberry preserves
1- 1 1/2 cups of lemon curd or lemon pie filling
2 pints of raspberries
1 tub of cool whip


Place a layer of cake cubes at the bottom of a trifle bowl. Spread strawberry jam over cake layer. Then a layer of raspberries. Next a layer of cool whip. Then more cake, lemon curd, raspberries and cool whip!!
