Ingredients List


Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Mascarpone can be used in this recipe.


  1. Line a 9x5-inch loaf pan with 2 sheets of plastic wrap (one placed horizontally and one vertically), allowing excess to hang over sides. Set aside.
  2. Beat mascarpone and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Beat cream in another large bowl until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into reserved mascarpone mixture. Fold in lemon zest and juice. Divide mascarpone mixture evenly into three bowls.
  4. Gently fold half of the raspberries into one bowl. Spoon into loaf pan; spread over bottom. Place remaining raspberries in a food processor; cover and puree berries. Add to the second bowl of mascarpone mixture; fold to blend. Spread over the raspberry layer.
  5. Set aside a 1/2 cup mascarpone mixture from the third bowl. Gently fold pound cake into remaining mixture. Spread in pan; top with reserved 1/2 cup mascarpone mixture. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and foil, gently pressing down. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
  6. To serve, remove from freezer; let stand 5 minutes. Remove foil. Run a knife around sides of pan to loosen. Invert onto a serving platter. Discard plastic wrap. Cut into slices.
