PREHEAT oven to 350º F. Line bottom of 9-inch cake pan with parchment paper. Sprinkle with brown sugar and 2 Tbsp. of the butter, melted. Cut nectarine halves into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange, with slices slightly overlapping, in concentric circles on bottom of prepared pan; set aside.

REMOVE 2 Tbsp. of the granulated sugar; set aside. Place remaining granulated sugar in large bowl of electric mixer; add remaining butter and cream cheese. Beat on medium speed until creamed. Add egg yolks and lemon juice; beat on low speed until incorporated. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda; mix well. Set aside.

BEAT egg whites in clean medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Gradually add reserved 2 Tbsp. sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Gently stir into cake batter just until incorporated. Pour into prepared pan.

BAKE 50 to 55 min. or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 min; invert onto wire rack. Remove parchment paper; cool cake completely. Top with whipped topping before serving.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Dessert can occasionally be included in your healthful eating plan, just be sure to keep a tab on portions.
Baking Know-How
Frequently, cake recipes call for beating egg yolks and egg whites in separate bowls and then combining them in later steps. This process will result in a lighter and fluffier cake. When beating the egg whites, you need to use a clean dry bowl and beaters. When folding the beaten egg whites into the cake batter, use a gentle motion to stir until well blended.
Prepare as directed, using other seasonal fresh fruits, such as plums, peaches, pears or apples.
