German Kitchen: Simple recipe for Käsekuchen cake

German Kitchen: Simple recipe for Käsekuchen cake

We were a part of the military community for 20+ years. I was a DODDS teacher and my husband worked as a civilian for the Air Force. We were stationed in Guantanamo Cuba, Ramstein Germany and Okinawa Japan. This recipe was inspired by our tour in Germany. We enjoyed Käsekuchen for breakfast, afternoon snack, or as a dessert!  My version of Käsekuchen is fast, easy and delicious! 

For the cake batter:

1 box Duncan Hines butter golden cake mix

3/4 cup milk

3 eggs

7 tablespoons softened butter

*beat for 4 minutes

*pour into well-greased 9x13 pan

For the top layer:
2 - 8-ounce packages of softened cream cheese

1 1/2 - 2 cups powdered sugar

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

*beat until smooth

*pour over cake batter

Baking and serving:

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry.

Sprinkle the top with cinnamon sugar mixture while warm.
