Berry Trifle

I am a berry-a-holic! I guess that is better than other types of addictions, right? I have posted other recipes using berries and they are, by far, my favorite types of fruit because they are easy to eat and bake with! This is a nice dessert because you can make it kid friendly or kick it up for adult servings. It is very pretty in a trifle bowl. This can also be a great dessert at Christmas because of the red and white colors. Also, if you want, you can use both red raspberries and blackberries. So, to make this a nice weekday dessert, use cranberry juice cocktail to sprinkle over the pound cake. Or for an adult dinner party, sprinkle your poundcake with Chambord. This is a lovely, smooth raspberry liqueur. You can garnish the top with some fresh raspberries or even red sanding sugar. Either way, this will go fast.

  1. Because of your earlier post I bought some big ole blackberries yesterday. I used them in a Jello parfait and it is sooo good! ;o)

    I have raspberries and blueerries in my freezer still and need to use them efore the new season is here! This trifle looks like a good way to use some!
