A quick and easy dessert for two. Creamy lemon filling topped with summer ripe berries.


Berry Layer

  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced thick
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Lemon Cream Layer

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup lemon curd

Cake Layer

  • 2 slices of pound cake, about ½ of an inch thick


  1. Reserve a few fresh berries to place on top of the final cream layer. In a medium bowl combine the berries, lemon juice, and sugar. Lightly stir to coat and let sit while preparing the cream layer. This gives the fresh berries time to release their juices.
  2. In a medium bowl add the whipped cream, sugar, and vanilla. Using an immersion blender or hand mixer beat on medium speed until soft peaks form.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, add the lemon curd and slowly fold in the whipped cream mixture.
  4. Add a layer of pound cake to each small dessert bowl.
  5. Add a layer of lemon cream and a layer of berries with juice.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled.
