Holy cow.

This is a 5 star recipe.

I guarantee you will lick your plate, or bowl clean.

I made it twice in one week. Not too good for my waistline, but worth it.

I started this recipe with the Harvest Pumpkin cupcake recipe from 101 Gourmet Cupcakes. But instead of making cupcakes, I make a large cake. What a great idea!

Then I thought, Brown Sugar Cream would be great with this too!

I also used the Wise Women of the East spice (perfect for the pumpkin pudding- you can find it at Honeyville Farms.)

Pumpkin Trifle

1 spice cake mix
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup chocolate chips
3 eggs
3/4 cup half and half
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. Wise Women of the East (or cinnamon if you don’t have it)
Brown Sugar Cream (see link above for recipe)
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
2 tsp. Wise Women of the East
1 recipe (large box) instant vanilla pudding (prepared according to package directions)
Trifle bowl

Mix together spice cake mix, pumpkin puree, chocolate chips, eggs, half and half, vanilla and 1 tbsp. Wise Women of the East. Pour into a greased jelly roll pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes. Remove and cool completely.

Add pumpkin puree and 2 tsp. Wise Women of the East into the vanilla pudding. Whisk until combined.

Layer the cake, brown sugar cream and pudding, then repeat until all ingredients have been used.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Refrigerate leftovers. IF there are any. 🙂

Happy Baking!

  1. It looks like you are putting individual servings in cannning jars. How many jars does one recipe make? I am assuming it should be eaten the same day

  2. Sue- One recipe filled up 8 pint sized jars, or one large trifle bowl. You can eat it the same day or within 2-3 days. Just cover tight and refrigerate.- Wendy

  3. Sounds yummy! I’m going to try it over the holidays. Couldn’t find the Wise Women of the East spice at that site so I’ll try pumpkin pie spice.

  4. The Wise Women of the East spice is only available at the store- not online at this point.

  5. I am making this for our family Christmas dinner tomorrow! I am so excited as it looks so yummy! I hope that the instant pudding is a large box – as I wasn’t sure…..Thanks for sharing your awesome talent with us! Merry Christmas!

  6. The large pkg. is what I used for the instant pudding. Thanks- I’ll clarify! Merry Christmas to you too.

  7. I have a recipe very silimar. I pour 1/4 cup of kahula over the brownies as soon as they come out of the oven. Then I stick them back in for a few minutes to make sure the alcohol bakes off. I also cannot find mousse at the store, so to get that layer I add one cup of cool whip to the pudding. I like to drizzle chocolate syrup over the top of mine.[]
