  • 16 ounces fresh strawberries hulled and quartered
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 2 (6-ounce) containers fresh raspberries
  • 1 (6-ounce) container fresh blackberries
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup Grade B
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 2 shallot
  • 2 1/2 heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • Lemon Pound Cake


  1. Topping
  2. Combine the strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries with the sugar in a large bowl and let stand 30 minutes.
  3. Stir the jam and lemon juice together in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Combine the heavy cream and confectioners’ sugar in a cold bowl and beat with an electric mixer to stiff peaks.
  5. To assemble the trifle, form a layer of the pound cake on the bottom of the trifle bowl. (Cut slices of cake into strips to make them fit in a single even layer). Brush the cake lightly with some of the jam mixture. Spoon one-third of the berries on the cake; top with about a third of the whipped cream. Repeat the layers two more times with the remaining pound cake and fruit. For the final whipped cream layer, spoon a decorative mound in 4-inch diameter in the center.
