I created this recipe when I made a cider cake and it wouldn’t come out of the pan. The cake began to fall apart and I decided that rather than throw the cake out I could turn it into something else. I had some canned pumpkin pie filling and some heavy cream and the trifle was created.


  1. 1Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice in a bowl.
  2. 2Add flour mixture and cider alternately in 3 batches.
  3. 3Divide batter into pans and bake for 25-30 or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. 4While cake is cooling make pumpkin mixture and whipped cream.
  5. 5For the pumpkin layer add cans of pumpkin, dark brown sugar, and maple syrup to a sauce pot and cook until just warm, and sugar is well incorporated.
  6. 6For the whipped cream fix an electric mixer with the whisk attachment.
  7. 7Whisk heavy cream and powdered sugar together until stiff peaks occur.
