"This dessert is certainly heavenly and a must for family gatherings. Try substituting pomegranite "rubies" for the pistachio nuts for an aesthetically pleasing presentation."

"To: Catherine5240, Try using any pie filling mixed with more fruit (apple pie filling chopped up with diced fresh apples) My husband loves this with blueberry filling and loads of fresh or frozen blueberries or peach filling and peaches."

"I suppose some dietticians would balk at the amount of fruit sugars in this recipe....however, when my husband (he had diabetes, lung cancer, and heart failure,) was alive, the desserts I made with sugar-free puddings and skim milk surely were better for him than the loaded pumpkin and pecan pies that were also a part of holiday fare. IIt is about balance. I will make this recipe. Combines some of my favorite things, and will be perfect for covered dish dinners."

"Ok ladies, for those who need a lesson in nutrition.....the words "healthy or Low Calories" does not mean it is appropriate for a diabetic. Don't get your panties in a bunch, just don't make the dessert if it isn't appropriate for you! Beth RN"

Topped it off with sugar free chocolate syrup.
Almost like a banana split.
Make only enough to eat as it does not keep well. It becomes very soggy if refrigerated overnight."

"This is similar to my mom's cake only she made it with an angel food cake from a tube-type pan. She would slice the cake in half and hollow out the center bottom half and fill it back up with the crumbled left-over cake, pudding, crushed pineapple, (and possibly bananas) and replace all this back in the center hollowed-out section of the cake, put the top back on the cake and cover it completely with whipped cream or cool-whip. I got sick on it as a child as I ate a whole half of this cake - it was so good."
