Pumpkin Spice Cake Trifle Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Cake recipe

Pumpkin is one of those flavors that people either love, or hate. You can enjoy it in pies, dips, and cakes, with toppings like streusel, gingersnap crumbs or good ol’ fashioned whipped cream. And don’t even get me started on pumpkin soups and other savory sides that have made their way into mainstream pumpkinlore. Adding pumpkin into a spice cake, with the intensity of clove, ginger and cinnamon, takes Fall baking to a whole new yum factor. And let’s not stop with your run-of-the-mill whipped topping. I’ve made a White Chocolate Whipped Topping to layer among the chunks of Pumpkin Spice Cake, stacked beautifully in a trifle bowl.

Your guests will be impressed [and your thighs will thank me] …

It’s a fix-it-and-forget-it kind of meal, with just a couple of simple steps after the Italian Beef has cooked, to make it sandwich-ready.
