I have made this cake several times, It is very very good. The first time I made it I only had 4 eggs so I only used 1 3/4 cups of flour, the cake came out just fine. I also only use fat free cream cheese. I make it this way every time. I did try splenda for baking and the cake was dry, probably wont do that again. I will however try using lemon flavoring and topping the cake with a lemon glaze and garnish with lemon zest.
