Toffee Apple and Honey Trifle

Toffee Apple and Honey Trifle created by TheDancingCook

I was invited to friends for dinner on Rosh Hashana and was told to bring dessert. I decided to invent this trifle, along with the help of some very good Zaar folk in the Q&A thread. I want to thank Terese, PetitFour, Jules, CCLady, ann teapot, Iron Bloomers, Charishma, evelyn/athens, MarieAlice, HeatherFeather, joni g, Mrs Beeton wannabe, Dancer, Amy - Ellie''s mommie, Bergy, Watermelon and Ann Marie F for all their wonderful input. This dessert was a hit!

ingredients

directions

  • Prepare the various layers of the trifle so they are all ready to assemble together.
  • Slice the pound cakes down the middle length-wise, then slice each loaf into 10-12 slices, resulting in 20-24 cubes per loaf, a maximum of 48 cubes.
  • Saute the apples in the butter until soft.
  • Add the cinnamon and mix well to coat all the apple slices.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the whipping cream, cream cheese, honey and vanilla pudding.
  • Toss the Skor bits into the food processor and whirl until finely chopped.
  • Now assemble the trifle in a large clear bowl with straight (ish) sides.
  • This makes a large quantity so you may have up to three layers.
  • First lay down a layer of cake cubes Then cover with the sauteed apples.
  • Then cover with a generous layer of whipped cream.
  • Then sprinkle with a layer of ground Skor bits.
  • Repeat the layers until all the ingredients have been used up, ending in a layer of Skor bits.
  • Note: I actually had more cake than necessary, so I had a layer of cake and cream in the middle before starting over with another layer of cake.

    3 words: or.gas.mic!!! I love the honey vanilla stuff, and the apples were yummy! Could have used more apples, though. ANd I prefer homemade pound cake! Folks were begging for the recipe!

    My niece says this is the best dessert I have ever made! I lightened it up with some substitutions- angel food cake instead of pound cake and I used light cream cheese. Delicious!!

    WOW! This trifle is so delicious with flavors of apple and toffee. I don´t think I used all 2 loaves of poundcake, not sure what size they where ment to be, but you don´t need a lot, I think. Apples then again, I used 8, since they where not that big and no regrets, they added wonderfull freshness between the layers. I did not use cream to make the vanilla pudding, but milk. It was plenty rich and creamy though. I might add a thin layer of whipped cream on top next time, though. I used 6 oz bag of toffee and our mouths where just melting. Yummmmm... Truly memorable!
