Sometimes I just want something other than bacon and eggs for breakfast.

So good! This is in my husband's top 5 favorite things I've ever made. I've made this twice and modified the batter a bit the second time. Like another reviewer, I had difficulties spreading the batter due to thickness so I used 1/2 cup of milk the second time to make the batter more manageable.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Beat cream cheese and butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating well. Combine eggs, milk, and vanilla; add to the cream cheese mixture. Beat well.
  2. Combine the flour and next 3 ingredients; add to the cream cheese mixture, mixing at low speed until blended.
  3. Spoon half of the batter into a greased and floured 13x9x2 inch pan. Combine the strawberry preserves and lemon juice; spread over the batter in the pan. Dollop the remaining batter over the strawberry mixture.
  4. Combine the pecans and brown sugar; sprinkle over the batter in the pan.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving. Cut into squares to serve.
