“I've been making this bundt cake for years now. Every time I make it, I always make it a bit different. Sometimes I just do the cream cheese, sometimes I would add a small amount of jams with the cheese, but either way, it comes out great. The smell is incredible! I originally found the recipe in a coffeecake book that I have in my collection of books written by Lou Leibert Pappas.”
