Chocolate and Fruit Trifle

This refreshing dessert layered with devil's food cake, a creamy pudding mixture, red berries and green kiwi is perfect for the holidays. Make it in a clear glass trifle bowl to show off its festive colors.


12 to 16 servings


1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup cold water
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
2 cups fresh raspberries
2 kiwifruit, peeled and chopped


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan.

Prepare cake batter according to package directions; pour into prepared baking pan.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire cooling rack. Crumble enough cake to measure 8 cups; set aside. (Save remaining cake for another use.)

In a large bowl, whisk the milk, water and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for two minutes or until soft-set. Fold in the whipped cream.

To assemble, spread 2 1/2 cups pudding mixture in a 4-quart glass bowl. Top with half of the crumbled cake; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon orange juice. Arrange half of the berries and kiwi over cake.

Repeat pudding and cake layers; sprinkle with remaining orange juice. Top with remaining pudding mixture. Spoon remaining fruit around edge of bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
