Very good and easy to make. I had never thought to use a cake mix as a crust for cheesecake. I used a white cake mix and added 2 tsp. of vanilla to the batter. I also used all the egg instead of just the egg white. Turned out well. I read the reviews that said the batter was too much for the pan so I made 18 cupcakes first and the rest went into the 9/13 pan. I used a small ice cream scoop for the cupcakes. I put 1 scoop of the batter and 1 scoop of the creamcheese mixture per cupcake. I then baked them both in a convection oven for about 20-25 min. I also substituted splenda for the sugar. I will definately use this recipe again!! Edited to add: I did not add the kirschwasser. Only used vanilla extract for flavoring.


This is a great recipe for gatherings/parties. It tastes like cheesecake, but with a light cake underneath. Simple and Clever. I followed the other suggestions and baked this in both a 9x13 pan and another smaller rectangular pan. I topped them with a ready made cherry pie filling instead to the raspberry(to make my life easier) and it was DELICIOUS! And the proof was in the pudding- people loved it and asked for the recipe. Will definitely make again!


For a 9x13 pan this was A LOT of ingredients. The pas overflowed in my oven while cooking. 32 oz. of cream cheese seems like way too much.
