Step 1

Preheat oven to 350˚F.

Spray a 9 x 13 cake pan with cooking spray, set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add the Cake Mix, Vanilla Pudding Mix, Pumpkin, Oil, Water, Eggs, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Cloves. Beat with a hand mixer until well combined, then pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake for 45 minutes then use a toothpick inserted in the center of the Cake to see if the Cake is done. If it comes out clean the Cake is done. All ovens cook differently so you may need to bake and additional 5 minutes.

Cool the Cake completely, then cut it into 1-inch cubes.

Whisk together the Milk and Cheesecake Pudding Mix. Allow to set, about 2-3 minutes, then fold in the Whipped Topping.

Layer 1/3 of the Cake Cubes in the bottom of a Trifle bowl. Next layer 1/3 of the Cheesecake Pudding mixture on top of the Cake Cubes. Then add 1/3 of the Pecans and Toffee Bits on top of the Pudding Mixture.

Repeat layers ending with Cheesecake mixture on top and garnish the top with remaining Pecans and Toffee bits.
