I had high hopes for this recipe after reading all the reviews. They were all right - this cake is very rich and very good. Everyone loved it. I thought that it was just okay since it tastes like a cream cheese brownie and I don't particularly like cream cheese brownies. If you really want to get the cake experience with this recipe I'd recommend baking it in a 9-inch round cake or springform pan. The brown and white looks good together and it makes for a tall cake.

Excellent and very rich. While I am sure it is great as is I doubled the cream cheese added an extra egg and a teaspoon of vanilla but kept the sugar the same. My family loved it. Read More

We loved this recipe try it with a butter pecan flavor cake mix and put some pecans on top. Tasted like a really rich pecan pie.(p.s. just made it again for my sister accidentally cooked for 1 hour and 15 minutes thought I burned it but was still really good. Guess you can't ruin this one.)

When they say that this cake is REALLY REALLY SWEET and is more like a brownie TAKE HEED!! I even used 1/2 cup less powdered sugar. I also added one egg and 1/2 cup water to the cake mixture because I wanted it more cakey. I also didn't like the way the topping was too crispy on the top. I guess what I was thinking of was a more cream cheesy softer topping and this definitely was not that. I'll pass on making it again.. Read More

I have just found this website. I was looking for something easy fast and yummy. I read all the ratings and picked this cake. I was very unhappy. I should have stopped after I read the 4 cups of sugar. It is WAY TOO rich and sweet there is just TOO MUCH sugar even for my husband who normally eats everything. Sorry!!! Read More

I made this cake for my husband's birthday 4 months ago and he took it with him to work. His coworkers have said recently that they still think about this cake and that it's the best cake ever! My husband has requested it several times since his birthday. Very rich and very good! Read More

I had high hopes for this but was disappointed. Maybe I should have done it in a smaller pan. It was like brownies with this white creamy frosting that never really stayed put. Next time I might try it with a 9x9 or 8x8 as suggested for a "taller" cake. I thought the flavor was fine but nothing amazing. Read More
