This is not your normal cheese cake itís more cake-like. Even folks who donít care for normal cheesecake will love this version. Itís easy to make and "to die for" good ... very rich and very good!

Main Cake:

      1 box of cake mix (Lemon, Strawberry, Cherry, Chocolate, White, ?? -- See the Topping section below)
      2 eggs
      1 stick of melted butter

  Combine ingredients to form a dough. Line the sides and bottom of a 9 x 13 pan with the dough.

Cheese Filling:

      1 box of powdered sugar
      2 eggs
      1 stick of melted butter
      24 oz of melted cream cheese

  Combine ingredients and pour into the dough lined pan.

  Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

  When cake has completely cooled, add topping.


The topping flavor depends on your cake mix and your imagination. Possibilities include

Cake Mix Topping / Additions
Cherry A small amount of canned, glazed pie cherries; or a light layer of whole chocolate chips
Chocolate A large amount of canned, glazed pie cherries; or melted mint chocolate chips; or drizzle on melted white chocolate; or (Debbie's favorite) fresh strawberries in glaze
Lemon A sweet/tart lemon glaze; or lemon pudding
Strawberry Fresh strawberries in glaze, or chocolate pudding
Vanilla (White) A very popular version had rum sauce on top and vodka soaked blueberries in the cheese filling
Yellow Rum sauce on top with 2 palmfuls of raisins leftover from making Glögg.
Raisins leftover from making Glögg were layered on top of the cake layer before adding the cheese mixture.

Strawberry Romanoff Cheesecake

This cake was inspired by the traditional Strawberries Romanoff dessert. For a fun presentation, serve it in 2-inch-wide parfait cups.

Additional Ingredients:

      1 box of Pillsbury Moist Supreme Strawberry cake mix
      1 Pound of strawberries
      1 750 milliliter bottle of Grand Marnier
      1 16.5 oz. jar of Strawberry jam or spread, we used Crofters Organic Strawberry Spread

Follow the basic recipe with the following variations:

After you have lined the pan with the cake mixture and made the Cheese Filling:



  Cut into 2-inch squares. Top with whipped cream if desired.

NOTE: Save the rest of the Grand Marnier that the strawberries were soaked in. It makes a good sipping liqueur with an interesting hint of strawberry in the Grand Marnier. It can also be poured over vanilla ice cream, or used as a flavoring for fruit cocktail, whipped cream, baked goods, and more!
