Well, its in the oven as I write this. This was a tricky recipe for me. I am an experienced baker and I found spreading the dough was a sticky mess, even oiling my fingers and using the wrapper from the butter. I wound up wetting a serving spoon and that finally worked for me. I sure hope it doesn't affect the rising of the cake with the extra moisture/water. Also, I was tempted to put preserves on the batter and then pour the cream cheese mixture over. But I followed the recipe instead, and it was such a mess trying to spread 1/2 cup preserves over. I am sure the preserve layer won't be as pretty, because it mixed too much with the cream cheese layer when spreading. I sure am hoping, that this comes out as good as it sounds, after Oh, and for you experienced bakers that put dry ingredients together first no matter what the recipe says...don't do on this one. Read closely. You don't add the baking soda & powder until later. Totally my fault, the recipe clearly states it differently.
