Elegant, rich, and BEYOND description--don't let the long list of ingredients or directions put you off--this is WELL worth the effort!!!--my family looks forward to our annual FIRST raspberry picking of the year--because THIS is the first thing I make, and we gobble it up! The authentic old-time kind of pound cake--makes three loaf-pans. Use one for this recipe, freeze the other two for future use (you'll want to make this more than once!). Trifle makes enough for ONE large serving bowl. Cooking time is "chilling time"
