~ Lemon Streusel Cake ~

vegetable oil spray for misting the pan
1--18.25 oz pkg lemon cake mix with pudding
1 stick butter, not too soft, but not cold
3/4 cup milk
2 large eggs
1--8 oz pkg cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 t grated lemon zest
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, if desired

Preheat oven to 350F.
Place a rack in the center of the oven. Lightly mist a 13x9 inch
baking pan with vegetable oil spray and set the pan aside. Place
the cake mix in a large mixing bowl. Cut the butter into teaspoon
size pieces and distribute on top of the mix. With two sharp
knives cut the butter into the cake mix until the mixture is crumbly.
Reserve 1 cup of the mixture for the topping. Add the milk and eggs
to the remaining mix, and blend on low speed of the electric mixer
until the batter just comes together, 30 seconds. Stop the machine,
and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase
the mixer speed to medium and blend until the mixture lightens and is
smooth, 1 minute longer. Turn this batter into the prepared pan,
and smooth the top with the rubber spatula. In a clean bowl, place
the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Blend on low
speed (using the same beaters) with an electric mixer just until the
mixture comes together, 30 seconds. Drop this mixture by teaspoons
onto the top of the cake batter, and with the rubber spatula, smooth
the teaspoons together to create a top layer. Add the pecans, if
desired, to the reserved topping, and sprinkle this evenly over the
top of the batter. Place the pan in the oven. Bake until the edges
of the cake are golden brown, and the top of the cake springs back
when lightly pressed with finger, 35 - 38 minutes. Remove the pan
from the oven to a wire rack to cool 15 minutes, then cut and serve.
Makes 16 servings
