READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Nana Lee

I was looking for a marmalade recipe and came across this. I couldn't resist checking it out since the title reminded me of Boston Cream Cake, a well known local dessert! Sure enough, it seems like a cheesecake version of that cake. So here is the link if interested:

I love you recipe #306458. Are you the reason I will become fat? The bottom cake layer looks thin, but that was only around the edge for about 1/2 inch. Otherwise, the cake layer was nice and tall throughout the bottom layer.
