Holiday Gift Cake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min.
I have been baking this cake for my birthday for.... well for more years than I would like to remember! With my birthday on 12/26, All of the hustle and bustle of Christmas is done, I love to wake up before anyone else and have a slice of this cake and a nice cup of coffee.
I would make this cake again in a heart beat.I have been making it for at least 39 years and always used Philly cream cheese, well I decided to use a off brand for the cake the last time I made it and in didn't work it rose and then fell and looked like it wasn't cooked but it was. Off brands have stabilizers and I guess that was the problem. Oh forgot to say I used the off brand 2 x's same problem. This AM I made the cake with the Philly, it turn out prefect!
