Made this recipe for my youngest sons birthday. I read many reviews before making it. This recipe was beyond easy & quick. After reading many reviews before hand I decided to pretty much stick to the recipe with the exception of using vanilla extract instead of almond, simply because vanilla is what I had on hand. I braced myself for the warnings about it being too sweet....well, the cake turned out fantastic! My cooking time was pretty close to 45 min in a 9x13 pan. As far as sweetness, I think it boils down to personal preference, it was quite sweet but ice cream or milk helped to balance it out. However, I could easily imagine using less sugar & it still tasting scrumtious. Also mixing the bowl that contains the cream cheese for @ least 3 min as it states (it should thicken) is important to the layers cooking more separately & not all coming together during the cooking process. This is a very tasty dessert, my husband & kids loved it & so did I!! The bottom layer more like a bar, top is more of a moist cake texture. Now that I have followed the recipe almost by the book, I now feel more confident to be more creative with it next time:). Thanks V. Monte!
