This recipe was given to me years ago by a friend. My sons love this. I make it when we go on vacation so we can munch on it while in the car.

My mother used to make these all the time. She would press the cake batter into a large cookie sheet to thin out the cake part and then pour the cream cheese topping on top. It lessens the cooking time a bit, but they come out super moist and more like bars or brownies. Great recipe!

I LOVE this recipe. I have made this three times in the last month and always get rave reviews. One helpful hint - I find the cake part of this hard to stir, so the last time I made it I used a potato masher to mix it up and it made the stirring a lot easier! Thanks for a great recipe.

This cake is unbelieveable! My grandmother used to buy pies from the grocery bakery. She called them Chess pies, I would die for them. I never got the recipe because they were "fattening" Once in a while I'd buy them when I got older, but always thought they would be hard to make. When I saw this recipe I thought how easy, and mabe it'll taste like the pie. OMG!, it's lovely tastes like the pies my Gma used to buy. I took it out of the oven, and only let it cool 10 min before I tasted it. My hubby and son couldn't beleive their taste buds! I will be making this, and I've already thought of other cake mixes to use in it. (I like experimenting)
