Apple Spice Cake Trifle

1 18.25 ounce box spice cake mix
1 1/4 cups cinnamon applesauce
3 whole eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 21 ounce can apple pie filling
1 tablespoon butter
7 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
3 cups milk
1 large container vanilla pudding mix
1 envelope whipped topping mix
1 12 ounce tub Cool Whip®, thawed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/4 cup English toffee bits or almond brickle chips

In a mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix, applesauce, eggs and oil; beat on medium speed of electric mixer for 2 minutes. Pour into a greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

In a saucepan, cook pie filling, butter and 1 teaspoon cinnamon until butter is melted; stir until well blended. Cool.

In a mixing bowl, combine milk, pudding mix, topping mix and remaining cinnamon. Beat on high until thickened, about 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

Spread a third of the topping in a 6-quart clear glass bowl.

Cut cake into cubes; place half over topping. Top with half of the fruit mixture, walnuts and pudding mixture. Repeat layers, ending with remaining topping mixture. Sprinkle with toffee bits. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours.

Recipe from here.

NOTES – Everything about this was YUMMY!!! Next time I would double the apple pie filling, there just wasn’t enough (in my opinion!). I barely had enough to get the second layer of apple pie filling on. I also didn’t use all the cake cubes (more for me to snack on!) The pudding stuff was to die! I would eat that on toast or anything else for that matter! Bottom line, it was huge, a lot of work and AWESOME!!!!
