Oh, and don’t be confused–or alarmed by the pictures. We tripled the recipe–hence, three of everything. Your eyes work just fine.

Luckily, 3 fit in a 9 x 13 Pyrex pan just perfectly. About the right amount for this crazy crowd.

  1. This was super yummy! I seem like it would be really easy to make with different kinds of pudding or pound cake and even more kinds of fruit. So good just the way you posted it, but easy to make so many different ways! YUM!
