Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle Recipe


Trifle is a classic British dessert that usually consists of cake soaked in some kind of liqueur, spread with jam, and layered with fruit and pudding. It’s always topped with real whipped cream, and is great for busy cooks because it’s best when made several hours ahead. This Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle is a delicious variation of the original, and contains the classic fall flavors of pumpkin and gingerbread.
””
Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle is pretty, especially when assembled in a clear glass bowl; trifle bowls are made expressly for serving this popular dessert. Trifle bowls are quite inexpensive, and are available in most department and discount stores. They’re also available on-line through Amazon (see link at the bottom of this article).

12 Servings

1 batch Basic Microwave Pumpkin Pudding & Pie Filling
2 cups whipping cream, whipped to stiff peaks

1 batch Gingerbread or Shortcut Gingerbread, baked in an 11 x 17” jelly-roll pan

1 cup apricot jam
1 28 oz. can pears in pear juice, drained
1 28 oz. can apricot halves in syrup, drained
1 cup sweetened whipped cream

  6. Line the bottom of a trifle bowl with cake strips.

  7. Cover with half of the drained apricots and half of the drained pears.

  8. Spread half of the pudding mixture over the fruit.
