  • 12 Servings
  • Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling


  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) chocolate cake mix
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened 
  • 3/4 cup cold milk
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • Fresh mint and additional raspberries, optional


  • Prepare the cake according to package directions. Pour into three greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Combine milk and pudding mix; beat into cream cheese until smooth. Fold in whipped topping and raspberries.
  • Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread with half of the filling. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cake; dust with confectioners' sugar. Garnish with mint and raspberries if desired. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 12 servings.

I first made this in Spring 1999 for our Easter dinner. I lost my copy of Taste of Home during a move and have not made it since. Today we will make this for our church fundraiser for youth missions.

UPDATE!!!! this torte sold for $55 at the Mission Auction!!!! Peanut received $44 of that for her trip and the remainder went to the Mission group as a whole.

I quit!

Yesterday I quit all the message boards I am on. One I have been apart of for over 7 yrs.
This is so hard! I want to go and visit when I am bored.

Now to take the chat time and turn it into productive time!

I think I can.
I think I can...

I wonder how the weather team came up with this?

Could it be because we had a freak white winter?  Hmmm

Does the fact it is barely June and we are hitting triple digits daily play into the "cooler" summer?!

I am going to go turn up my A/C, drink some sweet tea and try not to go outside til oh say October. Except to strip off old paint, sand and repaint some pretty projects of course... in the shade and only during dawn and dusk...
