This is one of my favorite desserts during the Holidays. My Aunt Jannie always makes this for our family Christmas dinner and is a fabulous way to end every meal! (Even if you have just eaten half of the pantry) :)
Punch Bowl Cake Trifle
1/2 cup oil
1 cup water
1 large box vanilla instant pudding
2 cups milk
1 large can crushed pineapple
1 can cherry pie filling
1 tub of Cool Whip
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix first four ingredients in large bowl until well blended and no clumps. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray. Pour cake mix batter into baking dish and cook for 25-28 minutes.
Let cake cool completely.
While cake is cooking/cooling mix together jello mix and milk. Allow to set in refigerator and firm.
Using a trifle dish, layer crumbled cake, pineapple, jello pudding, cherry pie filling and Cool Whip. Add a second layer and finish with Cool Whip.
Refrigerate for at least three hours before serving. This dish must be kept cold.
