Now if this isn't the easiest dessert cake you have ever made, I will need to know WHY!! It is moist, more-ish and takes less time than Betty Crocker! You can make the cake without the swirl (but why would you, unless there was a cream cheese shortage or something)…? It is fantastic for a crowd as it really does make a huge cake. The size baking tin you use is up to you, but I recommend a very large one, that you might normally roast meat in…really, its that big!
