Cheryl’s Earthquake Cake

This recipe was sent into us from Cheryl.  Here is what she has to say about this recipe…..

When using a 9×13 pan as the recipe says, this usually runs over the cake pan for me, so, if I remember, I put some foil on the rack below the pan to save on clean up, or I just turn on the self clean feature! When I use a 4 quart pyrex pan it doesn’t run over but then I reduce the baking time to 38 minutes. Too, I usually drop heaping Tablespoon globs of cream cheese mixture and there are usually little spaces between these. The finished cake never looks the same twice, but it’s always yummy!

We hope you enjoy Cheryl’s Earthquake Cake!!
