Luscious lemon cream, ribbon-striped pound cake and a tart berry sauce are layered
in this no-bake summer classic.
1 (12 ounce) bag frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
1 (18 ounce) jar seedless
blackberry jam or preserves (divided)
1 (10.75 ounce) frozen pound cake, thawed
2 tablespoons cream sherry
1 (10 to 12 ounce) jar prepared lemon curd, or homemade
2 cups heavy whipping cream
Fresh raspberries and mint springs for garnish
In medium bowl, combine thawed berries with 1 cup of the jam. Strain seeds through
fine sieve; discard seeds. Chill.
Cut pound cake in 1/2-inch thick slices. Split each piece into -inch thick slices;
spread remaining jam over half the slices. Sandwich pieces together and cut into
1/2-inch cubes. Drizzle sherry over cubes; set aside.
In medium bowl, combine lemon curd and whipping cream. Blend at low speed until
evenly mixed. Increase speed to high and beat until medium peaks form; chill.
To assemble: Spoon 2 tablespoons berry sauce into bottom of each large wineglass.
Top with 1/4 cup of cake cubes. Add 1/4 cup lemon cream mixture. Repeat layers.
Chill until ready to serve.
Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint sprigs.
