Anyway, all we're really doing here is layering cake, fruit, and whipped cream. To make it special, I added a sprinkle of Cointreau (an orange flavored liquer) to the cake layers. And to add a little more interest, I whipped in a couple of tablespoons of lemon curd into the cream.
So easy. So good. And it was beautiful!
Strawberry Lemon Trifle
1 Cream Cheese Pound Cake
4 cups fresh berries (I used strawberries)
2 pints whipping cream
2 tablespoons prepared lemon curd
Contreau or other fruit flavored liquer (optional)
Prepare the layers:
2) Slice the strawberries. Place sliced strawberries in a bowl with a tablespoon of sugar. You just want them to macerate for a few minutes.
3) Slice the pound cake into 1 inch thick cubes or slices. You can cut this however you'd like, you just want to be able to layer it.
Place one layer of cake on the bottom. If desired, sprinkle with a small amount of Cointreau.
Then, add a layer of the strawberries, using about half. After the strawberries, add a generous layer of whipped cream. Repeat, so that the top layer is whipped cream.
Grab a big spoon and enjoy!!
