Our trifle is a totally terrific treat! Pudding, apple pie filling and a drizzle of caramel top a tasty vanilla cake.
For the filling:
1 tsp apple pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon, plus extra for sprinkling on top
1 (4-serving) package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups Smart Balance® Fat Free Milk and Omega-3s
1 (8 oz) container fat-free non-dairy whipped topping
1 (10 oz) caramel flavor sundae syrup
1 (21 oz ) canned apple pie filling
For the vanilla cake:
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks, melted
1 1/4 cup Smart Balance® Fat Free Milk and Omega-3s
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups white flour
1 tsp salt

For pudding filling, combine cinnamon, apple pie spice and pudding mix in mixing bowl. Stir in Smart Balance® Fat Free Milk until thickened. Fold in whipped topping; set aside.
To make cake batter, mix sugar, vanilla extract and melted butter with a hand mixer in a separate mixing bowl. Add milk, eggs, flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda; mix well until smooth.

- Repeat process.
- Top with remaining pudding mix.
