An Irresistible Dessert


If you are still looking for a knock your socks off dessert for an upcoming dinner, a Spiced Pumpkin Trifle is it.  I’d love to take credit for the recipe, but it is one I saved on Pinterest from a favorite blog where you can get the full details.  

Not only is it one of the best and prettiest desserts I’ve tried recently, it is incredibly easy.  The trifle layers pumpkin bread, condensed milk, whipped cream mixed with pumpkin, and heath bar chips.  No way you can go wrong with those ingredients.

You could shortcut the recipe with a bought pumpkin bread, but I went to my tried and true Southern Living cookbook for a favorite.

Pumpkin Bread

3 c. sugar

1 c. oil

4 eggs, beaten

1 16 oz. can pumpkin

3 1/2 c. flour

1 t. baking powder

2 t. soda

2 t. salt

1/4 t. ground cloves

1 t. each cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice

2/3 c. water

Combine sugar, oil and eggs.  Add pumpkin and mix well. Combine dry ingredients and add to pumpkin mixture.  Add water, mix thoroughly and pour into 2 greased loaf pans.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

You only need one of the loaves for the trifle.  Enjoy the other for breakfast or freeze for another day.  

A word of warning about the trifle.  It’s so yummy you will be tempted to have a second serving.  All of us at my table did just that and found that our eyes were bigger than our belly.  Save some for later and you’ll enjoy it even more.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
