Tyler's Berry Trifle

I've made this recipe twice in the past weeks from
Tyler Florence's cookbook : Tyler's Ultimate.
I put in whatever berries I have fresh
or in the summer. Now I'm starting to look
for pound cake marked down and put in the
freezer to bring summer back in the winter
with this dessert. EASY!

Berry Trifle

1 pint blueberries
1 pint strawberries, cut into slices
1 pint raspberries ( I used peaches)
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
juice of 1 lemon

1 cup heavy cream
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup store bought lemon curd

1 store bought pound cake , sliced 1/2 inch thick

Combine berries, sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice
in a saucepan over med. heat. Bring to a simmer and
cook until berries begin to break down and give their
juices, about 3 mins. Takje off heat and cool, Sauce
will thicken.

In a bowl, whip cream ( I used the whole pint) with
sugar and vanilla to soft peaks. Put lemon curd in
another bown and stir a little whipped cream to
loosen it. Then fold in 1 cup.
Save the rest for the top of the trifle.

ASSEMBLE: Spoon a bit of lemon cream in bottom.
Add a layer of cake. Break it to fit. Then soak the cake
with a layer of berries , then a layer of cream. Make
3 or 4 more layers. Top with whipped cream .
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Fresh, sweet fruit and whipped cream is always a winner, in my book anyway. This recipe sounds delightful; I like that it has a touch of lemon too.
