For the No Bake Cheesecake Filling:

Additional Toppings:


Make the No-Bake Cheesecake filling:

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese until softened and smooth. Add sugars and continue to beat until no visible sugar granules remain.
  • Pumpkin puree, spice mix, vanilla and salt. Beat to combine.
  • Switch to whisk attachment and add 340g cream to bowl. Whisk on medium high until stiff peaks form.
  • Cut pound cake into cubes.
  • Whisk remaining 2 cups cream to soft peaks either by hand or with a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. I chose to keep mine unsweetened but you could add 2 tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar to make a sweetened version

Assemble the triffle:

  • Start with a thin layer of cheesecake filling then add a layer of cake, drizzle with maple syrup and crumble a few pecans. Repeat until you reach the top layer where you will finish with the whipped cream! Garnish with a few pecans if desired!
  • Store in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap until serving. Best if made at least 1 day ahead to give the flavors time to meld and the cake to absorb some moisture from the cheesecake layers!

    Absolutely a crowd pleaser and great to have for medium size dinner party – 6 to 8 people. Looks great, people love the taste and texture which is rich, pumpkin-spicy, creamy yet not gloppy.
