Recipe for Pumpkin Trifle


    Pumpkin Trifle

    1 (14 1/2 ounce) package gingerbread cake mix
    1 1/4 cups water
    1 egg
    4 cups cold fat-free milk
    4 (1 ounce) packages sugar-free instant butterscotch pudding mix
    1 (15 ounce) can solid-pack pumpkin
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ginger
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon allspice
    1 (12 ounce) container reduced-fat frozen whipped topping, thawed

    In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, water and egg; mix well. Pour into an ungreased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

    When completely cooled, crumble cake. Set aside 1/4 cup crumbs for garnish.

    In a bowl, whisk milk and pudding mixes together for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft set. Stir in pumpkin and spices; mix well.

    In a trifle bowl or a 3-1/2 quart glass serving bowl, layer a fourth of the cake crumbs, half of the pumpkin mixture, a fourth of the cake crumbs, and half of the whipped topping. Repeat layers. Garnish with the reserved cake crumbs. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

    Yields 18 servings.
