This is a sweet-lemony, crusty-yellow cake with a gooey cream cheese filling. The cake crust is easily combined in a large zippered freezer bag. I like mixing the cake ingredients in a freezer bag because they’re thicker than sandwich bags. No stand mixer required. However, the filling is combined with an electric mixer. This is a fun baking project for young children (with parental supervision).
The original seriously sweet version of this cake was made famous by Paula Deen. I decreased the powdered sugar by one cup and added lemon juice. A delicious dessert for any occasion. Enjoy!
