Cream Cheese Lemon Swirl Cake recipe

Everyone (yes, I'm exaggerating), has made a boxed cake mix.  It's okay, but it's never Oh My Goodness yummy, is it?  So when I was making treats for church a couple of weeks ago, I knew I wanted to use the lemon cake mix that was in the cabinet, but I wanted to do something different with it.

So I jacked it up.

Cream Cheese Lemon Swirl Cake

I made the lemon cake mix as the directions called for.  I poured it into jelly roll pan (or a cookie sheet, like my family calls it).  Then I made a cream cheese filling.

1 softened brick of cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 to 1/2 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Mix all those ingredients together.  Then I put them in a gallon zip lock bag, cut off a corner, and piped it all over the cake.  Then I used a skewer and swirled and swirled it around to make Cream Cheese Lemon Swirl Cake.

Verdict?  People at church said it was so good!  But I felt that the cake really fell away from the cream cheese portion, and the cake portion was a bit dry.  So next time, I'm going to try mixing it all together.  We'll see what that does...
