I wasn't expecting much from this recipe, since it only used so few ingredients. Well my guests raved over this cake and said it was SO good. I didn't change a thing, however I didn't use any fruit. I was going to serve it on the side, but I forgot and my guests were none the wiser. :) The cake was moist and the cheesecake layer was flavorful. I was really pleased with the outcome of this dessert. I will keep this one in mind when I need to feed a crowd.

Made this for a church fundraiser and everyone loved it. Perfect because it is so easy to make such a large quantity and tastes like a light fluffy cheesecake.
