This is a filling that I spoon in between cake layers, especially for loaf cakes, such as carrot, zucchini and blueberry, it gives that extra "kick" to cakes --- If you are making a larger size cake I suggest to double the cream cheese mixture.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 226.79 g package cream cheese, softened
  • 118.29 ml white sugar
  • 14.79 ml flour
  • 1 egg
  • 14.79 ml grated lemons (optional, but really gives a nice flavor!) or 14.79 ml orange rind (optional, but really gives a nice flavor!)


  1. In a bowl beat all ingredients until smooth.
  2. Layer half of the cake batter in pan.
  3. Top/spoon with the cream cheese mixture, then top with remaining cake batter.
  4. Bake as directed.
