  • To make the lemon curd: Bring a pot of water to a simmer over medium-low heat. Combine the egg yolks, sugar, lemon juice, and zest in a metal or glass heat-resistant bowl and whisk until smooth. Set the bowl over the simmering water, without letting the bottom touch, and continue to whisk. Keep working-out that arm and whisk it vigorously for a good 10 minutes, until the curd has doubled in volume and is very thick and yellow. Don't let it boil. Remove the bowl from heat and whisk in the butter, a couple of chunks at a time, until melted. Refrigerate until the custard is cold and firm.
  • To build the trifle: put the berries in a mixing bowl and toss them together so they are evenly distributed. Fold the whipped cream into the chilled lemon curd to lighten it up into a mousse. Line a glass trifle bowl with pieces of pound cake to fit. Drizzle or brush the cake with the Lemoncello, spoon a layer of the lemon curd over the cake, and then a layer of mixed berries. Repeat the layers until the ingredients are used up, the last layer looks best if it's the berries.

    NOTE:<br/>I have made "6 egg yolk" lemon curd recipes before and the yield is about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of lemon curd. I thought I would add this note for anyone that would prefer to use store bought lemon curd. :)

    The lemon curd never set up, so I had to make some lemon pudding in a pinch. Everyone enjoyed this.

    a wonderful twist on trifle. I tend to stick with English custard trifles, but this is such a refreshing change. Had to use Grand Marnier because I have never heard of lemoncello, but we like orange liqueurs so this is fine. Thanks for a super trifle and it will be served a lot for company (one has to impress) and, no doubt, the recipe will be requested.
