  • 3.4 ounces instant banana cream pudding mix 96 grams (1 small box)
  • cups skim milk 397 grams
  • 15.25 ounces White Cake Mix 422 grams (1 box) - I used the Super Moist Deluxe White
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips 85 grams, best quality
  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries 167 grams
  • 2 bananas sliced
  • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple 170 grams
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar 50 grams
  • Whipped cream optional, for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix the pudding mix with the milk. Whisk until fully combined. Use a large spoon or whisk to add in the cake mix until fully incorporated and smooth. The mixture will be quite thick, which is fine. Stir in the chocolate chips. Set aside.

    1 cup chopped fresh strawberries, 2 bananas, 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple, ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • Pour the macerated fruit into the bottom of the prepared baking dish, making a thin layer.
  • Top with the cake mix/pudding mixture and spread with a spatula or spoon to create a smooth top.
