Full Answer

To make Food Network’s berry trifle, lightly toss 1 pint each of blueberries and hulled, sliced strawberries, and 2 pints of raspberries, with the juice of 1/2 of a lemon. Combine the berries, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons of cornstarch and the remaining lemon juice in a saucepan, allowing the mixture to simmer and cook until the berries break down, about three minutes. Make the lemon cream by whipping 1 quart of whipping cream, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, until soft peaks form. In another bowl, add some of the whipped cream to 11 ounces of jarred lemon curd to loosen it, then fold the remaining cream into it. Assemble the trifle by adding a layer of lemon cream on the bottom, then a layer of broken slices of pound cake, and then the berry mixture, and repeat these layers, and finish with a layer of the lemon cream.

Kraft’s easy trifle recipe begins by preparing a package of chocolate cake mix according to the directions on the package, in a 13-by-9-inch pan. Next mix 2 packages of chocolate Jell-O pudding mix with 4 cups of cold milk. Assemble the trifle by layering 1/2-inch cubes of chocolate cake, pudding, whipped topping and chopped chocolate-covered toffee bars. Repeat these layers to the top of the container.
