About this recipe: If you love spiced pumpkin and trifles, you will love this recipe. Cubed spiced sponge cake is layered with a creamy cheesecake filling, chopped toffees and pecans. A truly decadent dessert.
Cheesecake filling mix can be purchased online. Alternatively, you can buy the boxed cheesecake mixes in supermarkets and use just the filling mix (discarding the biscuit crumbs).
This recipe has an error in it. You are supposed to put the pumpkin in the pudding. That is why several have not had enough filling. The pumpkin does not go in the cake mix. If done correctly this is a five star. - 30 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is FABULOUS!! I have made it for two parties so far and everyone loved it! I did not use toffee but used walnuts and pecans and caramel instead--very good. I also did not mix the whipped cream and pudding together so I could have three layers instead of two. It is a great trifle recipe for the holidays! - 04 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I did not make this exact recipe, but the one with butterscotch pudding and gingerbread cake from quickcooking.com. Oh my god! It was the best new recipe I made at Thanksgiving! There was another Pumpkin trifle, like this one, that I will try, too. I'm sure this one is just as delicious! I wanted to lick the bowl clean and didn't want to give up leftovers. - 23 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
