Strawberry Lemon Trifle

Somethings were made for each other.  Lemon seems to be one of those things that has many friends.  It pairs well with so many other ingredients: mint, pepper, garlic, white wine, basil, blueberries, and my favorite strawberries.  This trifle belongs on your table!

Super easy to prepare and is even better when made a few hours ahead of time.  Summer entertaining at it's finest!

Strawberry Lemon Trifle

2 cups of strawberries, diced
3 TBS of Limoncello
1/2 cup of seedless strawberry jam
1 large pound cake, cubed
2 cups of sweetened whipped cream (or non-dairy topping)
1 small jar of lemon curd

In a medium bowl, stir together the strawberries, jam, and Limoncello.  In another bowl, gently fold the lemon curb and whipped cream (or non-dairy topping) together.

In the bottom of a trifle dish, place 1/3 of the cubed pound cake.  Then layer 1/3 of the strawberry mixture over the pound cake.  Lastly, carefully spoon 1/3 of the lemon cream mixture over the strawberries.  Repeat twice more.  

Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.  Garnish with a lemon slice.  Enjoy!


  1. Liz... I think that my summer menu might only consist of strawberry trifles!!! So, please tell, is this a recipe you created on your own? I can't wait to try it!!!

  2. Spectacular! I love fruit trifles and I'm a devoted lover of lemon curd! Now I just need some company for an excuse to make this yummy dessert, otherwise I'll eat it all my self.

  3. This recipe was inspired by the trifle you made, my love for Limoncello, and the amazing strawberries at my local farmer's market. Hope you like it!
