      Bobby Flay's trifle is labor intensive, but it's worth it! I made this years ago and it was so fantastic that I've never forgotten the recipe. The gingerbread is incredibly moist and the addition of the candied ginger makes it exceptional...pretty much the best gingerbread I've ever had. I made the lemon curd from scratch, but only because my son needs all natural food and no preservatives; I imagine that would help cut down on the work considerably to use jarred. But the use of whipped cream to cut the tartness is important, especially next to the intense blackberry sauce. As an earlier person mentioned, it's important to strain the seeds from the sauce through a seive. All in all, this is the holiday dessert I make when I want to impress coworkers, friends, and family...using a large glass trifle bowl makes the dessert look as good as it tastes!

      I made this recipe last Christmas and haven't reviewed until now. Oops! My family thought it was great, and I thought it was very good, but it was very rich and I could only eat a small portion of it (maybe that's not a bad thing!). I used Alton Brown's recipe for the lemon curd and that worked very well for me. Make sure you use a coarse strainer for the raspberry sauce, I didn't have one and it made the process pretty laborious. I ended up just using the raspberry sauce about half strained, and I could tell that it would have been better if the seeds weren't in the mix--they were distracting. I definitely liked the trifle better a day or two after I made it--the flavors melded together better the longer they sat! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
