Brought this to work for a potluck luncheon. "Oohs" and "ahhs" and moans of approval could be heard around the room. If you closed your eyes and just listened to the sounds, you'd think something nasty was going on!! This should be nominated in the dessert "Hall of Fame" category...it's that good!

Decadent. If you love rich cream cheese desserts, this one is for you. It has been a favorite around this family for years. Thanks for reminding me of this dish. I'll have to make it again.

I just made this last night and wanted to add that it is best if cooled completely. If it is too warm the 2 layers seem to run together and you don't get the same effect. It remonds me of a lemon bar, with the crust and the curd filling.

Reading the other reviews, I decided to cut down on the powdered sugar to 2 cups and it was PLENTY. Next time I will use even less. This was great, nonetheless. It reminded us of cheesecake and in the future, I will top it with strawberry or cherry pie filling. Thanks.

Erin, this recipe is really delicious! I really didn't know what to expect, but was very happily surprised with its out come. I made exactly as directed and made no changes. This recipe needs no icing - to be sure! Rich, gooey and very buttery! Thanks for sharing, Erin!

This is five star all the way. This cake is so rich and gooey, its almost sinful! I don't like to bake and am not very good at it - this one is easy and taste ultra gourmet. I've given this recipe to six people so far! I followed the recipe exactly - no changes at all.

This cake is fantastic. I made it for my boyfriend since he likes the butter cake Super Walmart sells (formally Paula Dean cake.) He loves it! I made it in a 13 x 9 pan and like other users, I used 2 cups of powdered sugar in the second layer, and not the whole 16 oz box. It is plenty sweet. I didn't try it warm, but tried it the next day (and the next and the next...). There were two pretty layers in this bar-like cake.

This was awesome. I listened to other posters about the sweetness and I used 2 cups of powdered sugar. I also used the yellow cake mix with the pudding in it because it was what I had on hand, I don't know if it made a difference from the original recipe but the pieces I did share (the very few) the general consensus was that it was delicious! I'll be making again!
