Yellow Chess Cake

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is a very rich cake and it sells great at bake sales, as well as my little restaurant. When baked, the cherries go under and the cheese rises to the top.

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • In a large bowl, combine cake mix and butter. Mix until crumbly. Pat mixture into bottom of 9x13 inch glass baking dish.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 minutes.
  • In large bowl, combine cream cheese and confectioners sugar. Mix until smooth. Pour over pre-baked cake mix. Top with cherry pie filling.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 minutes, or when you see the cheese rise to the top. Cherries usually go under when baked.
