Pumpkin Spice Trifle

Pumpkin Spice Trifle

Trifles are very popular in Scotland and I will be making a typical Scottish trifle soon

In the meantime, here is the great Pumpkin Spice Trifle, perfect for this time of year

Last week here in Texas, we celebrated Thanksgiving along with everyone else in the united States

I love the typical Turkey & Stuffing, green bean casserole and  sweet potatoes

but I don't love Pumpkin Pie, my sweet toothed Scottish appetite wants something more

So in keeping with Thanksgiving

Here is the Pumpkin Spice trifle

I ripped this from a Supermarket flier recipe and modified it slightly

You will need

For the cake
6oz/175g Butter
6oz/175g Brown sugar
3 lightly beaten Eggs
10oz/250g self raising Flour
1 tsp Mixed Spice
1tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg

For the pumpkin cream filling
1 box of Vanilla pudding
1 Tinned Pumpkin 
Half cup of Brown sugar
1 teaspoon Mixed spice

For the cream
500ml Heavy whipping Cream

  • Cream together sugar and butter in a large bowl until smooth

Butter & Sugar

  • Add the lightly beaten eggs a little at a time adding a spoonful of flour to prevent curdling
Add Eggs

  • Sift flour, and spices into the wet ingredients and mix well
Cake mixture

  • Pour mixture into a cake tin and bake for 1 hour at 325F 160C
Cake mixture

  • Meanwhile, make up the vanilla pudding according to packet (do you know its a very American thing and this is my first time making up vanilla pudding....I know !)

  • To make the pumpkin cream, mix together the set vanilla pudding, the pumpkin, brown sugar and mixed spice, refrigerate until ready to assemble the trifle
vanilla, pumpkin, sugar

Pumpkin Cream

  • Now whisk up the heavy whipping cream until stiff, refrigerate until ready to assemble the trifle
Whipping Cream

  • To assemble, first crumble half the cake into the bottom of the trifle bowl

  • Next add half the pumpkin cream

  • Then a layer of the whipped cream

  • Repeat all the layers again, and sprinkle cinnamon on top for decoration

  • Enjoy
