I adapted this recipe from an old new England magazine about 8 years ago. This recipe was from a country Inn in VT. Cream cheese is mixed in to the batter. It is a really buttery sweet cake,and very tasty. I added a Cream Cheese icing. That puts it over the top. My daughters says it's addictive.Great with a cup of coffee after dinner, and breakfast! Enjoy all!!
