I made this in 1999, when V. Monte originally had it posted on "AllRecipes.com presents Cakerecipe.com." (Does Cakerecipe.com still exist?) It goes by many names, and has many variations --chocolate, pumpkin, etc.(see Paula Deen's recipes on FoodNetwork). Don't overbake this! The word "cake" is deceiving, so when you bake this don't think something's wrong when it stays gooey--that's exactly how it's supposed to be. It is a soft, gooey, bar-like dessert that, while tasty, was much too sweet for my liking. It was okay, but after making this in '99, I didn't consider it a "keeper," and I never made it again.
I have made a similar recipe for years, but I combine the cake mix with 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter and one egg. To the softened cream cheese, I add 1/2 cup of melted unsalted butter, 2 eggs, and only 2 cups of confectioners sugar. I also top it with 1/2 cup of chopped pecans before baking 35-45 minutes. Everyone begs for this recipe!
I turned this cake into a Thanksgiving Day dessert by adding a can of pumpkin to the cream cheese mixture, along with a teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg and used vanilla in lieu of the almond extract. I suspect you could let your imatination run wild with this delicious base. Although there were several other desserts on the table, this one was "gobbled" (sorry, dumb joke) up by everyone! Thanks so much V.Monte!!!!
This was fantastic. I baked it for a little less than the recipe called for, maybe 5-10 minutes less. Next time I will make sure that I don't forget to hit the sides of the pan with the cooking spray, I wasn't paying attention and only sprayed the bottom, and the cake really stuck to the sides. Besides that, it was a wonderful dessert.
I have made this dessert several times recently for large groups of people, and everyone has loved it. I also think 4 cups of sugar is too much, so I used 3. Next time I will only use 2.5.
I made this for my inlaws over the weekend. I reserved some of the crust mix and spinkled it on top of the cream cheese mixture to add a little more visual appeal. Everyone loved it and said "it was a keeper".
A simple recipe with great results! It was easy and quick. I didn't have a yellow cake mix on hand, so I substituted a white cake mix. It turned out great!
