I love anything with lemon in it.

One day when we had unexpected company for dinner I came up with this recipe.

Luckly I had all the ingredients on hand.

How to Make My Lemon English Trifle


  1. When I don't have unexpected company and can plan ahead I make my Isegi Kook-Even Cake to make the Trifle with.

    Make a good lemon curd and set aside to cool.

    Tear the cake into bite size pieces and place on tray. Place on oven on lowest light, so as to lightly dry out.
  2. Make the Birds Eye custard and set it aside to cool.

    Whip the heavy cream with a little powder sugar, Lemon zest and tad of Pure Lemon or vanilla extract.
  3. In a lovely glass serving dish, place a layer cake pieces. Add on top of the cake pieces the custard to cover on top of the custard add some of the fresh berries. Add another layer of cake pieces, on top of those cake pieces add the lemon curd. Add another layer of cake and then add the perserves. Top with whipped cream and fresh berries.

    If you don't have children...add some Limoncello cooked down on a low light with little sugar to make a syrup and drizzle the syrup on the first and second layer of cake.
