Equipment

Ingredients

Pound cake

  • 1 keto lemon pound cake

Raspberry Jam

  • 12 oz raspberries
  • 1/4 cup powdered sweetener, such as Swerve Confectioners
  • 2 tsp gelatin

Custard

  • 8 eggs yolks
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup powdered sweetener, such as Swerve Confectioners
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum

Whipped Cream

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sweetener, such as Swerve Confectioners

Berries

  • 12 oz fresh organic strawberries, sliced
  • 4 oz fresh blueberries

Instructions

Custard

  • Place the egg yolks, almond milk, and sweetener in a blender. Blend on high for 30-40 seconds then turn down to medium blend. While the machine is still going, pour in the melted butter and process for another 20 seconds.
  • Pour the mixture into a saucepan and warm to a medium heat, whisking vigorously until it coats the back of a spoon, 3-5 minutes. (Alternatively, cook in a bowl over a saucepan of water to prevent the eggs from curdling).
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla extract and xanthan gum. Set the bowl in the fridge (or in ice water) until chilled.

Whipped Cream

  • Beat the heavy cream and sweetener until the whipped cream forms stiff peaks.
  • Fold half the cream into the cooled custard.

Trifle Assembly

  • Cut the pound cake in slices about 3/4 of an inch thick.
  • Spread a thick layer of sugar-free raspberry jam on the pieces of pound cake and place one layer in the trifle bowl. Over that, spoon on the custard and cream mixture and even it out with a knife or spoon.
  • Sprinkle a few blueberries and sliced strawberries evenly over the custard.
  • Place another layer of pound cake with raspberry jam on the custard and berries.
  • Top it with the rest of the whipped cream in an even layer.
  • Decorate with remaining sliced strawberries and blueberries. Chill until ready to serve.
