A light and airy Italian Spongecake filled with a Creamy Cheesecake Filling, created in partnership with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese.
Not only are we celebrating Easter this weekend, we are celebrating Nick’s grandmas 90th birthday!! I’m so excited to get together with his family, including all his aunts, uncles and cousins (and they are Irish Catholic, so that means there will be a ton of people there) to celebrate this wonderful woman! I really love his grandma…and we know how lucky we are to still have her in our lives! 90 is definitely worth having a big, huge celebration, don’t you think?
Whatever you are celebrating this weekend, this time of year the best desserts are the ones that feature those tasty fruits that are almost fully in abundance! Berry season is so close, I can almost taste it! This Rustic Italian Spongecake with Creamy Cheesecake Filling is the perfect dessert for your celebrations. It’s so beautiful and not so sweet that it overwhelms you. It’s just like a gentle spring breeze… light, airy and oh so good!
The spongecake is good by itself, but I knew I wanted to make a creamy filling, featuring PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese. Made with fresh local milk, rich wholesome cream and real ingredients, I knew PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese would provide just the perfect amount of creaminess to compliment this cake!
However you are celebrating this weekend, I hope it is wonderful! Happy Easter from Dine & Dish!
