Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Mix guava paste and water in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 min. or until softened to spreading consistency; set aside.
Beat cream cheese, butter and brown sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each until well blended. Add milk, vanilla, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Pour half the batter into 9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray; cover with guava paste and remaining batter.
Bake 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 min. Remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.
Enjoy your favorite foods on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Prepare using guava marmalade or guava jelly. Since both have a softer consistency than guava paste, they do not need to be microwaved after mixing with the water.
