I must be doing something wrong, this sounds so good, and I've tried it twice. The first time it was so heavy I couldn't get it out of the pan in one piece so I tried again, cutting back on the cream cheese. Some better but not what I was looking for. I will probably try again, it is no doubt me not the recipe.
