Ingredients

Dry Mix
1 pkg. gluten-free yellow cake mix
1 pkg lemon fat free sugar free pudding and pie filling
1/2 tsp baking powder (non aluminum)
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
Crust
1 cup Dry Mix
1 egg
1/3 cup oil
Creamy mix
Remainder of Dry Mix
2 8-oz pkg cream cheese - softened (used Neufchatel)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sugar (used sucralose)
2 eggs
1 tsp lemon juice


Procedures


Combine Dry Mix ingredients with a wire whisk


Measure 1 cup of the Dry Mix, set aside for adding to the cream cheese.


Combine remaining Dry Mix with 1 egg and the oil until mixed.


Press into the bottom of a shortening greased 13X9X2 inch pan.


Bake for 10 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 350 F. It will puff up a little.


Combine all Creamy Mix ingredients (except Dry Mix) at low speed until fluffy


Mix in the Dry Mix just until blended


Dollop the Creamy mixture over the partially cooked Crust, use the spatula to gently spread it over the crust.


Bake an additional 40 to 45 minutes. Gluten-free version takes longer to bake. The edges will be browned.


Cool and serve, optionally with a dollop of sour cream




Tips


Watch it after 35 minutes until you are familiar with making this version. This version baked about 45 minutes.


Substitute sucralose for the sugar or any sweetener that measures the same as sugar


Add the dry mix in at the very last minute and mix just to blend in. Over mixing will make it a little more like bread instead of like cake.

Notes

A request for a gluten-free cheese cake reminded me of a recipe I have made numerous times before having to go gluten-free. This is a modified version of the original
