Mine was delicious even though the batter was a bit lumpy. I was afraid to overbeat it. An experienced baker advised me to whip the cream cheese first before adding in the other ingredients. But as I mentioned, it still turned out great! Never realized that cheesecakes were this easy to make! Will never buy one again!

I make this and top with cherry pie filling and whipped cream. Never a crumb left.

I've made this several times now and it's excellent! I did follow a couple other suggestions by adding in one container of either strawberry or blueberry yogurt and 1/4 cu of lemon juice. I've also doubled the recipe and put it in a rectangular aluminum pan for larger gatherings and it worked out great. If you do the aforementioned doubling, top it with blueberries and strawberries in the form of an American flag for the 4th! It WILL be a hit!!!

Great! Turned out perfect. I mixed in two mashed bananas and the smell was heavenly when baking.

Very nice recipe, so I thought to rate. I added a little lemon flavour and also didn't have enough cream cheese, so I halved the recipe. Creamy and lovely, however next time just for my own taste I think I will use some mixed nuts somewhere. I can see this tasting very well with chocolate or caramel sauce. My two year old loved it. Will use again! :)
