Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! This recipe is to die for! The almond pound cake is one of our favorite products! Combined with fruit and the pudding mixture it's amazing! I make this with regular whip topping and pudding. I make the almond pound cake with butter instead of applesauce. A friend of mine thought I put almond extract in the trifle. That's how delicious the almond pound cake is.
