Pumpkin Trifle

Could there be anything better than a pumpkin trifle?? Let's talk about this.

There isn't anything better. Conversation over.

If having Heath-bar bits, pumpkin cake, AND butterscotch pudding all together in the same bite is too much for you, then swap out the Heath bar bits for something else.

But how could it be too much? This dessert screams autumn.

Enjoy. I know there won't be a problem doing so!:)

Pumpkin Trifle

1 recipe pumpkin cake, baked and cooled (recipe follows)

1 carton whipped cream, whipped, OR 1 big tub cool whip

2 smaller packages butterscotch-flavored pudding made according to package directions

1 bag Heath toffee bits

In a trifle bowl, layer as follows: chunks of pumpkin cake, butterscotch pudding, whipped cream and toffee bits. You should have two of these layers. Finish with toffee bits on top of whipped cream. Refrigerate leftovers. Serves a LOT.

Pumpkin Cake

1 yellow cake mix

1 cup canned, mashed pumpkin

1 3.4 oz vanilla instant pudding mix

1/2 cup oil (or applesauce)

1/2 cup water

3 eggs

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp all cloves

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp ginger

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix on high speed for at least 2 minutes. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 glass dish (or a bundt cake pan works too), and bake until done.

So glad you included this because it is one of my fall/halloween faves thanks to you. And those donuts, um, my two vices: donuts and tillamook ice cream. I've never made donuts myself, though, but this recipe looks like I need to try awfully soon!
