You can do many variations with this recipe using fresh, canned or frozen fruit. Just let your imagination go. I have used canned peaches, raspberries, blackberries and various combinations of fruit. I use a large cast iron skillet but you could use a 9 x 13 pan.

I AM WATCHING MY FAT INTAKE SO I PURCHASE MY FAVORITE FLAVORS OF DH CAKE MIXES AND I SUBSTITUTE THE OIL FOR "PARKAY" OR "I CANT BELIEVE ITS NOT BUTTER" LIQUID SPRAY (NONFAT), THE EGGS WITH LIQUID EGG SUBSTITUTE AND THE WATER WITH MILK OR FRUIT JUICE THAT MATCHES THE CAKE FLAVOR IE., PINEAPPLE OR STRAWBERRY. I THIN FROST WITH A LINE LAYER OF DH FROSTING OR MIX FAT FREE COOL WHIP W/ DRY INSTANT PUDDING AND CRUSHED PINEAPPLE OR STRAWBERRIES. SUCH A GUILT-FREE TREAT!!
