Tiny Tastebuds: Pumpkin Trifle
With Thanksgiving just days away and launching into full Holiday mode, it’s been a bit crazy around here. I wanted to make a special treat this week for both Quincy and you! The thing is, I wanted it to be simple because the last thing I needed was something complicated on top of everything else.
I talked to my friend Angela, over at Fab Find Foodie and asked her for a recipe. She suggested Pumpkin Trifle. And let me tell you, not only is it easy, but it’s delicious too.
Make a box of pound cake according to the instructions. Let cool.
In the meantime, gather the following ingredients:
1 can of pumpkin puree (or equivalent fresh roasted)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 box vanilla (or cheesecake) instant pudding mix
¼ cup of milk (portioned out)
Sprinkling of nutmeg/cinnamon and sugar. Or, pumpkin pie spice and sugar.
Using your hand held mixer, blend pumpkin and sweetened condensed milk. Add pudding mix and blend until smooth. Add ¼ cup of milk, about a tablespoon at a time until its desired consistency.
Set aside and wash your beaters, you will need them again.
Put away the container of Cool Whip and mix together heavy whipping cream, confectioners sugar and a splash of vanilla until you get stiffish peaks. (Don’t beat too long or you will get butter!)
Cut the pound cake into cubes.
Layer pound cake, pumpkin mixture and whipped topping in a glass.
Pumpkin Trifle is an easy, Quincy friendly recipe. As long hers isn’t served in a wine glass. See, the wine glass full of Trifle is for me, why should she have all the fun?
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
