Pumpkin Spiced Wafer Trifle
-Here is another recipe pulled from my other blog. This one is so amazingly good. Ian is looking over my shoulder as I rewrite this recipe repeatedly asking, "aaaand when are you going to make this for me?"
I finally figured it out, and it was very tasty! Just the right amount of pumpkin.
- Pumpkin bread- From scratch or a box. Either way will be fine. Make or buy 2 just to be safe. So what if you have extra. Toasted
pumpkin breadfor breakfast...yes please!
- 1 box of
white chocolatepudding mix
- 1 can of pumpkin
- 1 box of spiced wafers
- Whipped cream- Homemade or cool whip (I am sticking with homemade from now on).
Cube the bread.
Layer the base of your trifle dish with half of the loaf. Set the rest aside for now.
Make the white chocolate pudding (vanilla will work too if you cannot find white chocolate). Allow the pudding to set for a few minutes in the refrigerator. Once the pudding has set beat in 1 can of pumpkin. Mix well with a hand mixer for at least 5 minutes. Spread half of the pumpkin mixture over the pumpkin bread in the trifle dish.
Put a little less than 2 sleeves of wafers in a large ziploc bag. Seal tightly. Using the back of a wooden spoon, mash up the wafers. I broke them up into dime sized pieces. Spread half of the bag over the pumpkin mixture for your 3rd layer. Then top with whipped cream and repeat all 4 layers finishing with the rest of the whipped cream.
If your family is like mine, you always have pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, but a lot of people don't actually eat the pie. Try this recipe out as an alternative and watch how fast it goes.
