I learned this recipe in Greensboro NC, hence the name. I've been told it's popular in Texas too.It's a birthday favorite at our house. It's what cheesecake cupcakes Sour Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes is based on. You can substitute low-fat cream cheese and sour cream and the taste & texture are still good. Delicious with fresh peach slices under the berrry glaze. Cooking & prep time do not include cooling overnight.
