Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle

We have had a very delicious week with the Virtual Progressive Thanksgiving Dinner! The food has been amazing, it’s really put me in the mood for Thanksgiving! I can hardly wait to try these recipes!!


We started the week with Shaina’s Mustard-Crusted Turkey and Aimee’s Fruit and Herb Stuffing. Adding her Apples and Cranberries baked in the Pumpkin was Tiffany and then Laura shared how her Slow Cooker saves her time on busy holidays, with her Mashed Potatoes and Baby Carrots. Tara’s delicious Cranberry Salad was added to the table next and to round out our meal…

Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle

I am a BIG fan of Trifles, they are quick and easy, don’t cost a lot to make, you can make them ahead and oh! we can’t forget! they look impressive too!

Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle
Delicious and easy Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle recipe from HoosierHomemade.com
  • 1 box Gingerbread Cake Mix and the ingredients to make it (egg and water)
  • 4 cups cold milk
  • 2 boxes (small) butterscotch pudding (instant or cooked)
  • 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon each of ground ginger, nutmeg and allspice (I used Pumpkin Pie Spice instead, about 1 teaspoon)
  • 1-2 containers of Cool Whip (depending on how much you add)
  1. Bake the Gingerbread cake according to the directions on the box and cool completely.
  2. Mix milk and pudding according to the directions on the box and place in fridge for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in pumpkin and spices.
  4. In a large trifle bowl, beginning with the cake, break off small pieces of the cake and line the bottom of the bowl.
  5. Then add the pumpkin mixture, followed by a layer of Cool Whip.
  6. Repeat layers.
  7. Top with Cool Whip and sprinkle with cake crumbs or add a Vanilla Wafer or Gingersnap cookie for decoration.

    That looks so delicious. Now I just need a trifle bowl, but I might make it anyway in a regular bowl. It just won’t look as pretty.

  10. Nutmeg Nanny says:

    I love trifles too! Although every time I see them I automatically think of the TV show Friends….did you ever see the Thanksgiving trifle episode? It’s really funny.

    Ok sorry totally off track :) Great looking trifle and I’m loving all the warm Fall flavors.

    I’ve made this before, and it really is fantastic! One modification I made that is soooo good is to add a touch of Frangelico to the whipped cream. Yummy!
