Cream Cheese Sweetheart Cake


1 cup flour
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup natural brown sugar*
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 cup grated cheese (cheddar or another mild cheese)
1 cup milk
1/4 cup soft butter
3 Tbsp powdered sugar
3 Tbsp evaporated milk
1/2 tsp lemon extract
The sugar shown is natural granulated sugar, often called “raw”. You substitute either white or brown sugar. I use natural sugar because it has a mild sweetness compared to white.


Mix flour, sugar and baking powder. Set aside.
In another bowl mix soft butter and cream cheese. Whisk until creamy.Gradually add in the milk. Continue stirring to properly incorporate the milk with the creamy mixture.
Gradually pour milk mixture over dry ingredients to avoid lumps. Mix well until well combined. Stir in some grated cheese.
Line pan with a greased foil. This is necessary to easily pull the cake out of the pan when it’s cooked.Pour mixture in the pan. Sprinkle with grated cheese and bake at 180C for 40 minutes.
Take it out of the oven and chill.
Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar, evaporated milk and lemon extract. Stir until sugar melts completely.
Get the cake and pour glaze over it. Sprinkle with the remaining grated cheese. Chill for 30 minutes.

Cut into blocks and enjoy
