Servings 24


  • 1 box white cake mix prepared in a 9x13 pan
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 8 oz tub whipped topping thawed, divided
  • 1 16 oz bag frozen berries (raspberries, blueberries, mixed berries)
  • ¾ c water
  • 3 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ c sugar
  • graham cracker crumbs optional


  • Prepare the white cake mix in a 9x13 pan, according to the box instructions.
  • While the cake is baking and cooling, make the cheesecake filling and the berry topping.
  • Make the cheesecake filling:
    In a mixing bowl (or in a stand mixer), make the cheesecake filling by whisking together the cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup of the whipped topping.
    Set aside until ready to assemble cake.
  • Make the berry topping:
    Pour the bag of berries into a saucepan. (Berries can be added frozen or thawed, but be sure to add all of the juices if thawed)
    In a small bowl, combine the water, cornstarch, lemon juice and sugar. Pour over the berries.
    Cook the berry mixture on medium heat, stirring frequently until the mixture is bubbly and thickened.
    Set aside until ready to assemble cake; the berry filling needs to cool completely.
  • Use the end of a wooden spoon to poke holes in the cake.
  • Pour the cheesecake filling over the cake, using a spatula to spread it out and help it get into the holes.
  • Spread the berry topping over the cheesecake layer.
  • Spread the remaining whipped topping on top, being careful not to mix it with the berry layer.
  • Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top, cover the pan and refrigerate for at least two hours before cutting.
