This is a smooth strawberry cheese cake made in a loaf pan.Delicious and simple to make- Great for those who cannot eat a piece of cheese cake without wanting to eat the whole cake.LOL This can be made in 2 loaf pans.. bake both and eat one and freeze the other for later. Or you can make it in one 9-inch cake pan.. no baking for this delicious gem; only the crust bake the rest just chills,baby.
