  • Cheesecake using yellow cake mix as the crust. Makes a 9 x 13 cake pan size
    Hi,

    This is a really good recipe for cheesecake. I am not a fan of graham cracker crust so this is perfect for my taste. I like this recipe because it makes a cake pan full.

    Enjoy,
    Jackie


    CHEESECAKE

    1 pkg. yellow cake mix (reserve one cup)
    2 Tbsp. of oil
    Two 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup sugar
    4 eggs
    1-1/2 cups milk
    3 Tbsp. lemon juice
    3 tsp. vanilla

    Mix one egg with remaining yellow cake mix and oil. The mixture will be crumbly. Press into a 9x13 casserole three-fourths up the sides. In another bowl, mix together:
    Two 8 ounce packages of cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup sugar
    3 eggs
    1 cup of reserved cake mix.

    Mix on medium speed. Slowly add:
    1-1/2 cups milk
    3 Tbsp. lemon juice
    3 tsp. vanilla and mix until smooth

    Pour onto crust and bake 40-50 minutes at 300 degrees until set.

    Top with topping of choice. I like this plain also.

    Jackie...these are really good and simple. We cut them up brownie style and have never thought of adding a topping. Good idea...Thanks

    DH wants a cheese cake for his birthday to take to work so this will be the one I make. He works nights so a sheet pan is just right for his crew. He LIKES pinapple so I will try pinapple cake mix and make a pinapple topping .
    Thanks for posting this and it will be yummmy.

    Nannahintx1,

    Thanks for the idea of using the pineapple cake mix for the crust. I had never thought of changing the crust flavor. I guess I like the yellow so much that I never even thought of changing it. I think I'll try chocolate and add some caramel drizzle on top. Now the different varieties are endless. Pineapple sounds delicious too. I hope it turns out for you. Some people don't add a topping, but mine usually cracks on top and the topping helps to hide this. You're a genius !!!!

    Do you think this recipe would work with Red Velvet cake mix instead of yellow?

    I like the idea of using a cake mix for the crust and making it in a 9 X 13 inch pan. I also find the use of the pineapple cake mix to be ideal with some added coconut on the topping.

    Thanks for the ideas ladies. latinrose
