In The Kitchen

One of my favorite times to be in the kitchen is during the Autumn harvest season.  There are many autumn spices I always have on hand to add to the menu. 

Shopping List for Gingerbread Trifle Recipe

If time allows,  I recommend the Gingerbread Cake recipe made from scratch on my blog. It has a hint of mustard which can be surprising but totally makes the cake pop. During the Autumn and Winter season it is easiest to use a boxed gingerbread mix.   I enjoy making this for our Thanksgiving get together with family and friends.

Prepared Gingerbread Cake

The gingerbread cake mix can be hard to find after the autumn and winter season in my area.  You can stock up on the mix and store in proper place for up to a year or use a spice cake mix as substitute.

White Chocolate pudding mix has a unique flavor that kind of taste like butterscotch to me.  You can also use a classic vanilla pudding mix if you can’t find the exact recipe ingredient on this post.

Toffee Pieces

Gingerbread cookies or ginger snaps can be used to decorate or crunched up in the trifle layering but not a necessity.
