Wannabee Trifle with Lemon Curd & Raspberry Coulis

Easy Wannabee Trifle
I call this Wannabee or Lazy Woman's Trifle. 

It's made with homemade pound cake, lemon curd, raspberry coulis, sherry, and whip cream all put in layers with fresh raspberries and grated chocolate on top. 

It's much faster and easier to make than standard Trifle. 

Just make a poundcake (okay if you really have to you can buy one but I've got a fantastic recipe for one that I'll post at some point) and cut it into cubes. Set it aside

Now get some raspberries and sugar to make raspberry coulis Save a few whole raspberries for garnish

Set that aside. Now get lemons to make lemon curd. Set it aside. 

Whip your cream until soft peaks form. Don't forget to put some confectioner's sugar or fine castor sugar in the whipping cream.

When everything has cooled, find the prettiest glass bowl you have. It needs to be deep to hold all the layers. First layer is poundcake which you are going to sprinkle some good sherry over. Don't be stingy with the sherry. Next layer is the raspberry coulis followed by the lemon curd. Top with whipped cream and then start layering again with poundcake, raspberry coulis, lemon curd, whip cream. 

You can make as many layers as you want. I usually do two. Top with lots of whipped cream and a few raspberries then sprinkle on grated chocolate. There you have it - an easy Trifle Wannabee! Note that my son finds the lemon curd a bit too tart. If you do too, you can always gently fold sweetened whipping cream into the lemon curd before assembling your layers.
