Fruit Pizza

 

I found this simple recipe for Fruit Pizza on Bernideen’s Tea Blog and decided to make it for a get-together we were invited to. I’ll give you the original recipe and also give you some options that I decided to try.

 

The mix, the sticky dough in the pan, the baked dough and the cool whip with pudding mixed in…

Ingredients:

1 pkg. Yellow Cake Mix
1/4 Cup Water
2 eggs
1/4 Cup butter
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup chopped nuts
I large carton of Cool Whip
Assorted Fruit pieces

Mix together cake mix, water, eggs, butter, sugar and nuts until stiff. I think because my cake mix was a variety with pudding in it the dough was sticky and not real stiff but it was still spreadable. Spread into a buttered and floured pan. You can use 2 round pans or I used a large rectangular pan. I also sprayed the pan with the baking spray with flour in it. (lazy) Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes but watch carefully because it might bake faster and you want it to be golden brown not dark brown :0)

Cool completely and then spread with coolwhip and cover with fruit of your choice. I used blueberries, blackberries, and peaches that were frozen and peaches that were fresh.

 

Instead of using straight cool whip I mixed the cool whip with a box of instant vanilla pudding to make it stiffer. Next time I think I’ll first make the pudding according to the package instructions and fold it into the cool whip or whip cream and see how that works…

 

You can make this look a lot prettier and arrange the fruit more creatively. Enjoy the possibilities…

 

Thanks Bernideen for this fun, easy recipe!

I auto posted this for Saturday morning because Dear and I got up bright and early to hit the road from Seattle to Camarillo today. I’ll be brain dead for at least a couple days after we arrive late Saturday night. Hope you all have wonderful summer weekend!

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site and have replaced my photos with black and grey boxes of ugliness. I’m slowly deleting those boxes from my blog and trying to update so many posts, very frustrating.

    Yummy photos, this looks really delicious. I’m sorry to see you leave beautiful Seattle. But you find wonderful photos where ever you are.

    Wave when you pass through, ok?

  2. I make a yummy fruit pizza as well.

    Base: make shortbread base as if for lemon bars, but use almond flavoring instead of vanilla.

    Bake, cool completely.

    Use one tub softened cream cheese, mix with 1/4 tsp. almond flavoring and 1/4 c. sugar. Whip well… spread on base.

    Top with any variety sliced fruit of your choice.

    Microwave 2 T. of jam and drizzle over top.

    YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The girls and I made this up one day and delivered it to our assoc. pastor’s wife. It became one of her favorite desserts.

    Blessings, Kim

  3. Hi Ellen,
    This recipe looks so delicious! And it’s surrounded by Pink!
    I hope your drive is uneventful and that you and Dear arrive back safely. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers today.
    I’m headed for Santa Monica this morning to have tea with friends at a place called The Tudor House. I’m wondering if you’ve ever been there?
    God speed,
    Cori G.

  4. Hi Ellen,

    Thanks for the recipe! I will definitely have to try it the next time I have a get-together!

    Judging by the time, you must still be on the road listening to LOTR on CD. Hmm, I wonder which chapter you are on now… I said a quick prayer for you and your husband to have a safe drive back to CA!

    Do get some rest after your long drive, okay?

  5. By time you read these responses, you will be in CA. I know the feeling of driving “straight thru” a long distance. Relax, and get yourself back, we’ll all survive if you don’t blog for a day 🙂 God Bless

  6. I was delighted to find that the blog you linked is related to a WONDERFUL tea shop we visited in Colorado Springs while on vacation in the fall of ’06. My oldest daughter and I didn’t want to leave the store–now we can enjoy our ‘cyber’ visits!!! Thanks! 🙂
