I picked this cake to make for the cake-a-thon for ChefIAm. This is very similar to a cake my mother used to make years ago. I think my mother's recipe just used the pudding without the added cream cheese. The cream cheese is where I had the problem, it separated from the pudding mixture while mixing it all together. I would change directions to say, soften cream cheese to room temperature, mix pudding and two cups milk, then fold in soften cream cheese. This is a delicious, not too sweet, moist cake. Will definitely be making this again with the above recommended changes.
