I am making the recipe for the second time, it is a family favorite! All four kids keep asking for it. I followed the recipe but added chocolate morsels ( I used half a bag) and mixed it with the cream cheese and it was incredible! Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I followed the recipe to the tee. It turned out absolutely delicious. The only thing I will say is that mine rose a little more than I've traditionally seen. Nonetheless, wonderful! Read More

I made this cake for a neighborhood cookout. While I was talking with some friends I saw a little boy steal 3 pieces before the dinner was ready. How he ate that much of this rich cake I do not know but his mother must be dealing with a tummy ache about now. It is a great cake and everyone loved it. I will absolutely make this again. Read More

I have a different recipe for this cake. However the other recipe has an after-taste that I didn't enjoy and I had a real problem with the measurements! So I looked for a recipe with different measurements that would accommodate what I could find at the store but also tastes good! This recipe fit the bill to a T! I was a little skeptical at first but I'm glad I followed the exact recipe! I'm completely satisfied and happy with the results! Even though i did not top the cake with extra sugar - its not needed! I still give it 2 thumbs up! Read More

My mom use to always make this growing up. Her recipe mixes everything together, not making 2 layers as the recipe calls for and also sprinkles a lot of powdered sugar on top. I stuck making it exactly how the recipe calls for it, but the way my mom did is so much better. It's creamier. Everyone loved it though. When people see it for the first time they aren't sure they'll like it, but one bite and they are in love. This is a great recipe to keep! Read More

Turned out fantastic. Cut Down on the amount of sugar and still turned out great. 4 1/2 cups is better than 1.7kg of sugar :-)) Read More

I bought 3 -13 by 9 inch cake pans, the stainless with stainless lids. I made cakes in them and gave them for Xmas presents to married grandkids. One cake was this ooey gooey cake made with a lemon cake mix. My granddaughter and her family went crazy over it and wanted the recipe. My daughter wants it also , needless to say this will become the dessert for get togethers. Read More

I made this recipe following the directions almost exactly. The only thing that I did differently was that for the topping I whipped my cream cheese separately from the other ingredients for about 5 minutes on medium speed. This made the cream cheese a bit fluffier and make for a very flakey buttery crust! Also I think the cake is plenty sweet without adding the powdered sugar to the top after cooling. I left that part out and wasn't disappointed. I think if I had added the powdered sugar to the top it would have been just a bit to sweet. Other than those few adjustments GREAT recipe! My family loved it and I am making another tonight. Read More
