Raspberry Trifle

Beautiful and luscious, this trifle is an impressive way to use your fresh raspberries. Plus, people will never know how nice and easy it is to prepare if you use purchased pound cake or lady fingers. —Marcy Cella L'Anse, Michigan

    Trifles are easy desserts that look fabulous. Try using a layer of the raspberry jam inside thetrifle instead of just on the top. Can also substitute white or yellow cake pieces for pound cake.

    Toasted the pound cake and sandwiched two thin slices together with raspberry jam. Also used mixed berries to give it a bit more color. Frozen berries work well too in the winter time.

    I have made this recipe on several occasions and we all love it. Once I couldn't find raspberries and substituted strawberries. Once I put blueberries in it with the raspberries for the fourth.
